Orion Music and More tickets and information.

Over 20 years ago, while a student at Fort Collins High School, Aaron Beam of RED FANG helped stand up for music programs put at risk due to lack of funding. Today, Portland schools are struggling to fully fund art, photography, ceramics and other arts classes. RED FANG is honored to headline this benefit to give Portland students greater access to the arts, and have basic materials like paint, paper, and clay.

This special event “A Benefit For Grant High Art Department” is scheduled to take place Friday May 25th at the Hawthorne Theater in Portland, OR. RED FANG will be headlining the event with support coming from Lopez, Nether Regions and Grant High’s own Hell’s Parrish. Doors for the show at are 7:00 pm with the first band hitting the stage at 7:30 pm. Tickets can be purchased for the show HERE.

RED FANG’s Aaron Beam commented on the state of Grant High’s Arts Program:

“It is a shame that Grant High’s arts are underfunded, and a bit mysterious to me. Young artists looking for cheap venues to create and display their works move to and revitalize cities and neighborhoods. It happens repeatedly. I watched it happen in Portland in the 1990s, with artist communities such as The Lab and The Modern Zoo, and clubs like the X-Ray.”

Pick up some legit gear from the band at the official Red Fang official merch store.

We are extremely stoked and proud of Red Fang, The Sword, Black Tusk and Landmine Marathon for being added to Metallica’s Orion Music and More Festival!

The event takes place on June 23rd and 24th at Bader Field in Atlantic City, NJ and full details can be found by visiting www.orionmusicandmore.com. Head to the show and show some hard working bands some support!

Happy Monday everyone! I had the opportunity to do some Q & A with Red Fang drummer John Sherman. Check it out below along with their killer new video and shirt design!

1. Your awesome new video for “Hank Is Dead” recently premiered, featuring air guitar winner Tony Tapatio. I looked up some previous footage of this guy air shreddin’ and he is no joke! Any cool stories from the shoot?

Yeah, Tony is no joke indeed. He walked away with the oversize novelty check for $1000 and the champion title. The shoot was super fun, as all our experiences with Whitey have been. The huge speakers on top of the car were the real deal, so driving around town blasting jams and yelling at pedestrians was pretty amazing. Whitey has a way of bringing out the teenage jackasses in us, I guess.

2. This is your second tour in a row with Mastodon in two different vastly different markets. How has it been on the road with those dudes and how do the European crowds compare to the ones in the US?

Touring with Mastodon is the dream. Seriously, they are the nicest dudes in the world and super fun to hang out with. Extremely friendly guys and they treat us like family. Half way through the US tour they asked us to come to Europe ‘with them and it was very easy to say yes. The crowds really aren’t that much different over here versus back home – I mean, Mastodon crowds are insane no matter where you go, and, luckily, they seem to be into us as well. Dream tour – opening for a killer band that has tons of amazing fans who dig our sound AND they are total bros. Amazing.

3. Did you guys find a “go to” beer out there on tour or is it whatever the venue provides?

No “go to” beer over here, really. We try all the local favorites wherever we go. Honestly, I’ve been way more into wine on this tour, but that’s just me. There’s plenty of amazing beers over here. Some crappy ones too!

4. The aesthetic Red Fang has created is a rare feat in the metal community these days, combining honest and heavy music with humor through your music videos and interviews. Was this something the band set out to do from the onset or did it come naturally?

It’s funny how little we actually “set out” to do. We are just being ourselves – we love heavy rock and we are goofballs. It is entirely possible to take your music very seriously without taking yourselves seriously. You probably won’t ever hear a “joke” song on a Red Fang record, but when it comes to videos comedy just comes naturally. Like, we would rather see some idiots smash through a wall of milk in a station wagon than mope around in a dark dungeon being all mean and serious. That’s no fun. Come on out that dark dungeon, little buddy, and party with us! It’s nice up here!

5. What is your favorite merch design the band has had online or on tour?

We probably will all tell you different personal favorites – we never agree. That’s why we have to have several designs! Right now, my favorite is the new “Bearded Skull” design this kid, Xavi from Barcelona, made for us. It’s pretty amazing. Seems like the classic “Sabertooth Skull” design is the most popular though. We have been fortunate to have some killer designs come our way.

Their killer new aforementioned design “Bearded Skull” is now available at the Red Fang official merch store.

If the clip below is any indication, it looks like our pals in Red Fang will be three for three in the awesome music video department. The band is wrapping up the editing on their latest endeavor for “Hank is Dead,” featuring an air guitar face off of epic proportions. The winner, Tony Tapatio, is seen below winning over the band and fans alike with his tight pants and black flag tattoos. Check it out!

The video will be unleashed soon so keep checking back.

snag some righteous gear from the band at the Red Fang official merch store.

Want to win $1000 dollars cash from Red Fang? Of course you do. Head over to Dante’s in Portland on October 25th to air guitar your way to some serious cash and appear in their new video for “Hank is Dead.” Check out the above flyer for details and visit Red Fang’s official site for more details. This is a must for anyone in the area.

Red Fang has unleashed two fresh designs on their online store!

Night Destroyer.

“Cloie McPhail took the term “a wolf in sheep’s clothing” literally with this fantastic graphic. Another Talenthouse “design a shirt for Red Fang” winner, this tee features a predator of the plains cloaked under a passive creature, ready to strike his prey.”

Humans Remain Human Remains.

Talenthouse contest winner Alex Rydlinski has created a shirt 10,000 years in the making. Featuring a prehistoric man ready to strike down another cave dweller, this design fits perfectly with Red Fang’s aesthetic and music. This shirt is an online exclusive and can only be found here.

Both shirts and more can be found at the Red Fang official merch store.

The fantastic art from these shirts came from a contest hosted by IndieMerch, Zazzle, Metalsucks, Relapse Records and Talenthouse, a website that helps artists from all walks of life to showcase their talents. Check out the video below for more info on this amazing company:

Both artists won a ton of prizes including cash, credits to Zazzle, and a ton of gear from Red Fang.
