GOOD FUCKING GOD, we are so excited for this. RED FANG is the latest effort from long time bros and collaborators Bryan Giles (Last of the Juanitas, Party Time), Aaron Beam (Dark Forces, Lachrymator), David Sullivan (Party Time, facedowninshit, Shiny Beast) and John Sherman (Party Time, Bad Wizard, Trumans Water, All Night). The four have boiled down their disparate sounds to create the ONLY sound: RED FANG.
I want this band to play at my funeral. Federation X reveals an original and chaotically absolute way in the alternative rock scene. Conceiving fuming themes, amplified by folk, garage rock, and punk references, the Washington state trio ultimately delivers a set of extreme rock & roll. Assembled in the late '90s (Yakima, WA), Federation X is guitarist Ben, drummer Beau, and vocalist and guitarist Bill.
The band has been compared to such heavy acts as Melvins, Karp, and Black Sabbath. While Wildenhaus and Badgley have always played 4-string guitars, 2006 saw the addition of guitarist Josh Holland, so that Badgley could have the space to concentrate on his vocal duties. If Bellingham had an unofficial Town Anthem, I'm pretty sure it'd be a Fed X song.
Brutal, lovely, meandering, and one of our favorite things on the EARTH.
