Red Fang, the Portland, Ore. hard-rock band known for among other things fantastic music videos, is at it again.
The band just released a new video - this time more of a tour diary than a narrative of destruction. But the video for "Dirt Wizard" again plays up the band's personalities as the every-men of rock. Filmmaker Whitey McConnaughy - who's produced three other clips for the band - stitches together clips from the band's summer European headlining tour. It's got face-melting rock, fan adoration, off-stage jackassery, exhaustion and tedium, showing all sides of a hectic tour that saw the band play 33 shows in 35 days.
Red Fang headlines a Halloween show at Plush next Wednesday. Check out the Weekly's music section for an interview with singer-guitarist Bryan Giles, who grew up in Tucson.
