Attention Red Fang maniacs, aspiring actors, and zombie lovers: the band is looking for lots and lots of extras for a new music video shooting this Tuesday November 5th in Portland, OR. Relapse Records comments:
"You will be playing the part of a terrifying new breed of zombie, a beer zombie! These zombies will stop at nothing in order to consume beer. These zombies aren't dead, just dead drunk. We will need your best stumbling drunk impressions for the camera as you run amok.
"We are looking for all types of people, young, old, men and women. If interested you need to email your name and phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org (if possible, please include a photo of yourself) You will then be emailed the location and shoot time.
"Please try to bring at least 2-3 different wardrobe items. We will be outside all day, so dress weather appropriate. We would love it if you dressed a part, maybe a trashman, surgeon, business man, Quickie mart clerk, mechanic, mail man, etc. Anything will work but we'd love to have a wide range of looks, not all jean jackets and black jeans.
"If you have a favorite beer coozie, beer can helmet, beer bong, beer mug or any other drinking accessory please bring it with you."

Relapse Records is closing out 2012 with a special podcast curated by J.R. Hayes of Pig Destroyer. Mr. Hayes has picked 20 of his favorite tracks from the Relapse catalog in addition to answering an in-depth interview about the band's new album "Book Burner."
Later in the podcast there is a preview of 2013 featuring new music from Red Fang, Blockheads, Call of the Void, and Wolvserpent. Download the podcast at this location.
Pig Destroyer released fifth studio album "Book Burner" (reviewed here) this past October on Relapse Records.
The deluxe editions each contain a bonus disc of punk covers and a short story, titled The Atheist, penned by frontman JR Hayes. The Atheist is a post-apocalyptic tale about a decaying world taken over by the violence of religion that showcases the renowned lyricists' unsurpassed style for the first time as prose. The deluxe 2xLP also contains an etched b-side featuring artwork by Wormrot frontman Arif Rot.
The full "Book Burner" album can be heard in its entirety on Pig Destroyer's Bandcamp page here.
Red Fang drew my attention first during day two. Contrary to their name, Red Fang’s bite energized rather than paralyzed the crowd. Although they came from the land of fog and towering trees of Oregon, their riffs were the size of Texas and filled with a gritty quality not unlike the festival’s dusty, trodden paths. Their catchy rhythms, guitar solos and drum fills grabbed the modestly sized audience and injected groove into their stoned bones. With prior SXSW appearances, Red Fang has become a well-recognized force in Austin’s festival circuit. Make sure to check these guys out on their touring supporting the “Murder the Mountains” album.

27.11.12 Germany Osnabrück Bastard Club
28.11.12 D Cham LA
