Any rock or metal band can come up with a contest that provides swag for their fans, but Red Fang are taking it a step further. They have partnered with Talent House for a t-shirt design contest where hopefuls and contestants will vie for a variety of prizes, such as cash, exclusive merch, music and above all others, have their design sold as an actual shirt at the band's merch table while on tour. That's the ultimate of prizes, no?

All you need to do is design an original graphic t-shirt inspired by the album cover of their latest, 'Murder the Mountains.' Here are the prize fine print details: $500 in cash in exchange for use of the winning design; a customizable merch store at (a $500 value); a $100 Zazzle gift certificate; a Red Fang t-shirt and autographed CD, a limited edition art print; and more.

But don't fret. If you don't win, you could still be a runner up who will receive some pretty sweet loot, as well. Two runners up will receive $100 in cash; a Red Fang t-shirt and autographed CD; the band's 'Wires' 7" single, art print; and more.

You have until August 9th to enter, with the winner announced on August 25th. Go here
