The first photo of Hooded Fang I ever posted had seven members in it; the second, six. In today’s post, the Toronto band seems to be down to a succinct four: April Aliermo, Daniel Lee, D. Alex Meeks, and Lane Halley, if Facebook is to be believed. The reason for the post is that there’s soon to be a new sibling in the ‘Fang’s family of albums. Gravez, Hooded Fang’s third full length will be released on May 27, 2013 via Daps Records in Canada (and Full Time Hobby in the US and UK). The album announcement was made alongside the debut of the record’s first single, “Graves”, another short and sharp garage rockin’ number. Don’t let the morbid sounding song and album title fool you, melody is very much at the heart of Hooded Fang, even if “Graves'” howling guitars come over like they’re spoiling for a fight.
