Red Fang Premiere “Antidote” Video Via New Video Game App

Red Fang have premiered a new video for their song “Antidote“ via a new video game app called “Red Fang: Headbang!.” The game tracks the player’s movement and requires them to keep headbanging. However, if you stop, the band will die. If you choose to play, keep in mind that there are three different alternate endings.

The game was developed and directed by Wieden + Kennedy‘s Ansel Wallenfang and it features intro and outro music written by composer Disasterpeace. It’s worth noting that High On Fire‘s Matt Pike and comedian Brian Posehn helped with the game’s development as well.

Wallenfang commented:

“‘Red Fang: Headbang‘ is a culmination of everything I’ve wasted my life on—metal, arcades, and a warped sense of humor. It’s really a love letter to my childhood and all the things that make me, me.”

The band’s own Bryan Giles added:

“When Ansel Wallenfang first approached us with his video concept we all thought he was crazy! A year or so later we still think he’s crazy, but the video turned out amazing! We’re over the moon about it!”

Red Fang Premiere New Video For Their Cover Of Tubeway Army’s “Listen To The Sirens”

Red Fang have premiered a new Ray Gordon directed video for their cover of “Listen To The Sirens,“ a track originally performed by the Gary Numan fronted band Tubeway Army. The group commented:

“We’ve been a fan of Tubeway Army for a long time. It was a blast to record a song of theirs with Adam Pike and equally great to make a video with Ray Gordon! I hope people get as creeped out by our version of ‘Listen To The Sirens‘ as the original!”

Red Fang To Release “Red Fang Red” Wine

Red Fang have joined forces with Teutonic Wine Company to create “Red Fang Red” wine. The beverage, which is a Pinot Noir, Tannat and Gewürztraminer blend, will be available at a special release party on January 13 at the Teutonic Wine Company in Portland, OR. The band will be present at the event, with drummer John Sherman scheduled to do a special DJ set. Sherman commented:

“Everyone thinks we’re very much about beer and our videos definitely portray us that way. We do drink beer, but I personally prefer wine and consequently, I’ve always wanted to make a Red Fang wine. To meet winemakers who also dig heavy music was a dream come true. The first time I went to Teutonic’s tasting room, they were playing Saxon on vinyl and I said to myself, ‘these are my people.’”
