MP3: WHITE FANG – “Tall Shadow”

Hailing from the supposedly nonexistent Portland suburbs, White Fang are gnaring up the underground teenage rock scene. Their debut, Pure Evil, out now on Portland’s Marriage Records, encapsulates the fierce energy portrayed in their live show. Self-proclaimed “gnar-shredders”, White Fang is an untamed beast, a herd of ravageous rockers with childlike spirits and souls swooned by 90s punkrock. Pure Evil was recorded in Portland, OR by Aaron Shepherd at local arts commune The Artistery and mastered by friend and mentor Adam Forkner (of White Rainbow). With a headlining set at the PDX Pop Now! Fest and a feature on under their belt, White Fang recently completed their first major tour with Rob Walmart and White Rainbow and are heading back out on the road starting with a Halloween show tonight in Sacramento.

“…sounds like the Who meeting the Melvins for a West Side Story knife fight.”

“All those drummers don’t even play in synch or keep regular time.”
-The Oregonian
