Red Fang Details
Blueprint Live and Scrape Records presents
with Black Mastiff
Red Fang is the latest effort from long time bros and collaborators Bryan Giles (Last of the Juanitas, Party Time), Aaron Beam (Dark Forces, Lachrymator), David Sullivan (Party Time, facedowninshit, Shiny Beast) and John Sherman (Party Time, Bad Wizard, Trumans Water, All Night). The four have boiled down their disparate sounds to create the ONLY sound: Red Fang.
“I’ve known Red Fang for a long time from before their very humble beginnings in 1972, even. I knew them in the early days when they were grody dirt wizards that you never wanted to see with their shirts off. But there we were in Teeksville, Vermont, at 4 a.m. After literally burning the club to the ground following their poorly attended set, I’m pounding on the door of the cutest little bed and breakfast you’ve ever laid eyes on with a very drunk and hungry Red Fang demanding a pancake breakfast topless.
In the years since, a few things have changed: The band successfully rescued guitarist David Sullivan from a hoarding situation (featured on the “If The House Is a Rockin’” episode of Hoarders),bassist/vocalist Aaron Beam received his master’s degree in the Smooooth Sciences, guitarist/vocalist Bryan Giles started the world’s first 100-perecent anti-organic farm in his kitchen, and drummer John Sherman has climbed Mt. Everest in the nude, making him only the third person ever to do so. And none of them wets the bed anymore! That’s just the stuff that’s been on the news. They’ve also been touring the world like mad, playing to thousands of sweaty, hygienically-challenged maniacs at festivals and non-ventilated venues alike. They’ve made several award-winning music videos that have lots and lots of views because they’re hilarious and awesome. Then this spring, they jogged 14 miles round trip to the studio everyday for 666 days and recorded a new record called Whales and Leeches.
