Hey folks. I won’t waste my time or yours trying to introduce you to Red Fang, because obviously you are already familiar with them — American stoner rock band for the past decade and a half, aficionados of cheap beer and good times, probably as well-known for their goofy videos as for their music itself?
Well in case you missed it, earlier this year Relapse Records put out the band’s fifth album Arrows, and as par for the course, the band also filmed a video for the title track “Arrows” (which you can check out below if you haven’t seen it yet).
Once you’ve checked out these four-plus minutes of the bandmates whacking every imaginable object in half with swords, your initial reaction is likely to be how much fun this would be, and how much you would like to try it for yourself. If that’s true, well then you’re (somewhat) in luck…
The band and their label just recently announced a brand-new online game loosely based on the concept behind the “Arrows” clip, allowing the player to hack and slash at a wide variety of items within your browser (works either with a mouse or on your touch-screen device).

As an added (optional) bonus, by accessing your Spotify/Apple/Tidal streaming account, you can listen to Red Fang while you play for the full immersive experience.
And once you’ve become proficient at racking up points, you may be interested in entering this contest:
Relapse Records and Red Fang will be offering three top scorers a variety of prize packs including a grand prize featuring the Psycho Las Vegas Fortune Hunter Gambler’s Pack (a custom deck of cards, casino-grade dice, a forged metal challenge coin with a custom box, Arrows vinyl and a t-shirt). To enter, contestants should post a screenshot of their score to social media (Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram) with the #bladetowaste hashtag and tagging Red Fang. Contest ends at midnight on January 1.
