Portland, Ore. riff rockers Red Fang just kicked off their nine-city U.S. run with Kylesa, Saviours and Lionize in Seattle and have already announced plans to continue their assault on the States through November, alongside Venus-via-North Carolina alien rockers Valient Thorr.

Basically, as the band states in their blog, "Red Fang is hard at work and we ain't stopping." Even more of a testament to that is the fact that Red Fang's self-titled debut only came out earlier this year through Sargent House, and the band is already working on its follow-up.

So you have a chance to see them work it in the Midwest and East Coast during both fall treks -- as well as a few festival appearances, including a stop at San Francisco's Fog Rising.
