White Fang

White Fang - Bong Rip

White Fang was formed in Portland, Oregon by Gnar Tapes founder Rikky Gage during his junior-year of high-school in the fall of 2005. In the 10 years since they’ve formed, White Fang has released 8 albums, has built a cult-following of loyal fans with their brash, unrelenting antics on and off stage, and has toured the United States, Europe, United Kingdom and Australia extensively along-side acts such as The Growlers, TogetherPangea, Cosmonauts, Gap Dream, Colleen Green, YACHT, The Coathangers, The Thermals, and of course their sister-band The Memories, to name a few.

In addition to actively touring and recording as White Fang & The Memories, the boys also manage their own label – Gnar Tapes. Gnar Tapes seeks to release music by freaky-weirdos, outsiders, and otherwise like-minded individuals from around the world, and as of March 2015 – along with Burger Records – has opened a store-front called GnarBurger in Cypress Park, Los Angeles, California, where the band currently resides.

White Fang speaks to the part of us that has been promoting a freewheeling, devil-may-care attitude all along. At a young age these full-time freaks devoted themselves to a surreal and subversive dream of music & video.These days they’re crafting super-baked, bong water-logged jams for marathon hangouts—because, for White Fang at least, their wild weekends last “seven days a week.”

White Fang is Rikky Gage, Unkle Funkle, Jimmy Leslie and Izak Arida.
