Portland, OR hard rockers RED FANG have premiered a cover of the Fraggle Rock song "Why" in preparation for their upcoming headlining fall US tour with Whores and Wild Throne.
Originally recorded in 2013 and now appearing on the Fraggle Rock tribute album Shine On, the track will appear alongside a cover of Elvis's "Can't Help Falling In Love" on a limited edition 7" to be released by Volcom in conjunction with the tour. A preview of the cover art along with an extremely limited quantity of the press is currently available for pre-order via Relapse HERE. The full Fraggle Rock compilation, Shine On, is available digitally via iTunes HERE.
RED FANG's Revolver Magazine-sponsored tour comes on the heels of the band's recent European and Australian tours, and includes appearances at Slipknot's Knotfest and Monster Energy's Aftershock Festivals. This tour marks the last shows the band will perform in 2015 before heading into the studio to begin recording its new full-length next year. A complete listing of dates is available below.
Released via Relapse Records last year, RED FANG’s most recent album Whales and Leeches debuted at #66 on the Billboard Album Chart, marking the group’s highest sales week ever and first debut in the Top 200. Whales and Leeches, which was produced by Chris Funk (Decemberists) and mixed by Vance Powell (White Stripes, Raconteurs, Kings of Leon), has generated worldwide critical acclaim for the band from publications such as SPIN, Revolver, Magnet, Alternative Press and many more (soundbites below). Featuring such guests as Mike Scheidt (Yob) and Pall Jenkins (The Black Heart Procession), Whales and Leeches has propelled RED FANG into the upper stratosphere of the heavy rock and metal elite. The album can be streamed in full via the band's official Bandcamp page HERE.
RED FANG recently premiered their new animated video for “Crows In Swine,” the third single off Whales and Leeches. The clip, which was animated and directed by Adam Avilla, can be viewed HERE.

We here at BAH Magazine we asked to get the word out about one of our favorite bands Alter Bridge and the single "My Champion", we were ready and willing to help! Our review of the album can been seen here: http://www.bahmagz.com/2016/10/album-review-alter-bridge-last-hero-4.html but I wanted the fans to let the world know what the song and Alter Bridge means to them and they have shared some amazing stories in tribute to "My Champion" please enjoy!
James Schmid from Waterloo, Ontorio. Alter Bridge provides everything you'd expect from a rock radio hit, while also giving die hard AB fans everything they expect from their beloved band with My Champion.
The song opens with a guitar riff reminiscent of Def Leppards "Photograph" before hitting you square in the face with a "heavy for radio" sound that remains catchy without disappointing their "we like it fast and hard" fans. Their fan base, and music ranges in such a wide spectrum, it…
Cane Hill brought their Louisiana industrial sound to the
Chameleon Club in Lancaster, Pennsylvania on March 11th of 2017. It
was a Saturday night which meant the people of PA were ready to party! There is
always a party following this band. Their energetic sound ignites something in
people. As they took the stage as the opener of the “Let’s Get
Abducted Tour” the crowd was anxious. They played multiple songs from their
2016 summer released album “Smile” and to the bands surprise most of the folks
watching them were mouthing the words. As they recently got back from touring
overseas it has come to their attention that they are steadily gaining
popularity. The link below allows you to find where they will be next along
with album and merchandise purchasing info. Look out world, Cane Hill is coming
for you. http://wearecanehill.com/

version of the song "Metalingus" was originally recorded for ALTER BRIDGE's debut album One Day Remains. The song reached a
whole new audience when it was selected as the official entrance theme of WWE
superstar Edge back in 2004! Those years following, would have the song played
weekly on television right up until the day he retired in 2011 and is still
used every time he returns even until today. Live at the O2 Arena + Rarities is avai…
