Scion AV Presents Red Fang’s Spring Tour, "Situation: AWESOME!"

PORTLAND-BASED BAND RETURN TO THE ROAD 

FOR FIRST 2014 U.S. OUTING

April 1, 2014, Torrance, Calif. – Scion Audio Visual presents Red Fang’s Spring tour, Situation: AWESOME!, the Portland band’s first Stateside outing in 2014. The one-month trek kicks off May 16 at Slim’s in San Francisco and includes a stop at Scion AV’s Rock Fest in Pomona on May 17.

As part of the Scion AV-sponsored tour, Red Fang will release a new single titled “The Meadows” in early May, with a limited edition 7-inch available along the tour. A video for the song will arrive during the Situation: AWESOME! tour.

Red Fang released Whales and Leeches in October, with the eleven-song album quickly becoming the band’s best-selling and most critically acclaimed release to date. Alternative Press described the album as “bigger, bolder, heavier, catchier and even more savagely fun,” Stereogum said the release “takes flight and soars,” while Magnet Magazine said Whales and Leeches “is a monumental success – a clear line from Red Fang’s earliest recordings to it latest.”

The band performed single “Blood Like Cream” on The Late Show with David Letterman in January (above) and also issued a hilarious video for the song, featuring Portlandia creator/Late Night with Seth Meyers’ bandleader Fred Armisen and the band members during an unusual zombie invasion here

A Twitter (Twitter.com/ScionAV) sweepstakes will be ongoing throughout the tour, with two pairs being given away per show.
