Spruance commented:

“Putting these shows together it occurred to us that this was a great opportunity to expose unsuspecting audiences to some of the absolutely legendary thrash, death metal and hardcore bands that originally inspired us in the mid 80s.

And if we’re going to do that, why not re-unite with some of the equally legendary bands we were close with in the 90s? And why just concentrate on the past? Of the current bands that have taken some kind of inspiration from the heavier side of Mr. Bungle in doing their own thing, why not invite the select few that have managed to inspire us back?”

You Can Now Watch Red Fang’s “Antidote” Video Without Playing The Game

Red Fang have officially premiered the music video for their song “Antidote.“ The clip was previously only available as part of the band’s “Red Fang: Headbang!” video game. The group commented:

“For those of you who suck at video games, now you can hear our new single, ‘Antidote‘, uninterrupted by fun! It’s now available for download as a regular old digital single. But if you are up for the challenge, see if you can beat our high score on your smartphone!

Love, Red Fang“

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!”
