Red Fang has released the cover art for their new album, Whales and Leeches, scheduled for release in October on Relapse Records. Graphic artist Orion Landau is responsible for the heavily involved design seen off to the side.
Landau, who also did the cover art for Red Fang’s 2011 release Murder the Mountains, has an impressive roster of artistic work with other bands such as Mastadon, Baroness, Birds of Prey and Death. And without question, he did an amazing job with Whales and Leeches
Help with the visual elements for the album isn’t the only consistency of production choices between Red Fang’s most recent releases. Chris Funk (who has worked with the Decemberists) and Vance Powell (who has mixing credits with The White Stripes and Kings of Leon) worked on the band’s 2011 release and also came on board for the new album. Hopefully we won’t have to wait too long to hear the new music Red Fang has been working on. Though we can expect the Portland band to announce U.S. tour dates sometime next week.
