The name Fang Island comes from an Onion article, and began as an art project while its five members where attending art school in Rhode Island. Now based in Brooklyn, these five art-school indie rockers sing as if they are shouting at each other and have been compared to Go! Team. The band describes their sound as “everyone high-fiving everyone.”
Their self-titled debut album was released on 2/23/2010 on Sargent House Records and they will be playing three gigs in the Bay Area in support of the Red Sparowes. On 5/5 and 5/6 the band will be at The Crepe Place in Santa Cruz, and on 5/7, they make their way to the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco.
