Watch: Red Fang's stupidly funny new Predator-goes-gonzo video
Like Predator? Like stoner rock? Like unnecessary gore and comic book geek revenge fantasies? Then you'll like this.
Red Fang. They're loud. They have riffs. They like stupid shit. And their new video for Shadows has all of that stuff, working with long-time collaborator Whitey McConnaughy on a promo that parodies everyone's second-favourite Arnie movie Predator and some kind of nerd revenge fantasy.
“It was a crazy adventure through the woods in rural Oregon," says singer/guitar player Bryan Giles. "It has stunt men, real firepower and some great explosions! We had a blast on this one.”
Watch it, it's crazy:
Here's the facts you need to know:
Shadows is the sixth video to pair Red Fang and director McConnaughy; the first clip from the partnership was 2010’s Prehistoric Dog, which saw the Portland-based band challenge a local role playing troupe only to suffer the consequences. The most recent video from the band and McConnaughy is the 2013 clip featuring Fred Armisen and a horde of beer-thirsty zombies in Blood Like Cream.
Red Fang have also revealed a series of in-studio videos documenting their experience working with legendary producer Ross Robinson (At The Drive In, The Cure, Slipknot, etc) on Only Ghosts. Here it is:
