RED FANG Performs On 'The Late Show with David Letterman' (Video)

January 11, 2014

RED FANG made its national, late-night television debut last night (Friday, January 10) on "The Late Show with David Letterman". Video footage of the "Blood Like Cream" performance can be seen below.

RED FANG released the video for "Blood Like Cream", directed by Whitey McConnaughy. Actor/comedian Fred Armisen ("Portlandia", "Saturday Night Live") joins in the fun with the beer-loving Portland-based band. "Blood Like Cream" is the first single off RED FANG's new album, "Whales And Leeches".

"I love RED FANG and I had the best time doing the video," says Fred Armisen. "It was fun for me to do and Whitey was a total pleasure to work with, too."

"In keeping with a long tradition dating back to 2007, we have made another epic, hilarious video with Whitey McConnaughy, the content of which is completely unrelated to the lyrical content of the song," explains the band's bassist/vocalist Aaron Beam.

"This song is about the stress of balancing a touring lifestyle with having a family back home, but who wants to see a video about that? BORING! Instead, we have a video featuring lots of blood, beer, and exercise — some of us did more running in this video that we've done the whole year to date. Also, Fred Armisen is in this one and he really steals the show. I thought I was a bad actor before, but after working with him, I see I cannot even qualify for such a high distinction as 'bad.' We hope everyone has as much fun watching it as we had making it!!"

RED FANG has created a new video game — a virtual beer shot-gunning challenge — and if enough users share the game, they'll be able to unlock the new RED FANG track "Behind The Light".

Released October 15 on Relapse Records, "Whales And Leeches" debuted at No. 66 on The Billboard 200 chart, marking the group's highest sales week and first debut in the Top 200.

RED FANG is generating critical acclaim from SPIN, Revolver, Magnet, Alternative Press and more for the new album, which was produced by Chris Funk (DECEMBERISTS) and mixed by Vance Powell (THE WHITE STRIPES, RACONTEURS, KINGS OF LEON). Featuring such guests as Mike Scheidt (YOB) and Pall Jenkins (THE BLACK HEART PROCESSION),"Whales And Leeches" propels RED FANG into the upper stratosphere of the heavy rock and metal elite.
