Red Fang release Fraggle Rock tune

Red Fang have released their Fraggle Rock-inspired track titled Why?

It originally appeared on tribute album Shine On (opens in new tab) which was dedicated to the 80’s children’s show. But they’ve now issued a stream of the track to tie in with their upcoming US tour.

And they’ve announced they’ll release the song on 7-inch vinyl on October 3, backed with a cover of Elvis Presley’s Can’t Help Falling In Love.

It’ll be issued on limited-edition coloured vinyl and is now available to pre-order.

They released two-track EP via TeamRock last summer and they’ll begin their run of dates in Missoula on September 30.
