Fangs! is the fourth studio album from experimental rock band Falling Up. It was released on March 24, 2009 through BEC Recordings.
Falling Up announced Fangs in August 2008, recorded from September through November, and completed the album around late 2008. The material for the album was written during early and mid-2008. Album updates were announced via the band's MySpace blogs and official YouTube channel randomly during 2008.
On January 23, the band's official MySpace profile was changed to reflect the new album's artwork and style. The band added a new song, entitled "Streams of Woe at Acheron", to their Myspace profile on January 22 and announced the album pre-order on January 27. There are three pre-order choices, each consisting of the physical album and either band signatures or a t-shirt and plastic "fangs".
On March 4, Jesus Freak Hideout posted an album "PReview", which consisted of 20-second clips of every main track and a review, including track lengths.
On March 6, Falling Up posted a new song from the album, called "Goddess of the Dayspring, Am I", on their Myspace page. The track lengths for the version posted on Falling Up's Myspace and the one reported by Jesus Freak Hideout are, for no known reason, different.
On March 13, Amazon posted Fangs for pre-order via MP3 download, which included extended 30-second previews of each song. This posting confirms that "Goddess of the Dayspring, Am I" has a song length of 4:31.
On March 21 the album was leaked to the internet via p2p downloading networks.
The album contains twelve songs and five transitional tracks that are not numbered. The transitional tracks are part of the songs they're listed before or after, more as introductions or lead-outs than anything. "Panic and Geo-Primaries" contains the chorus and main theme from "Arch to Achtilles" on the band's earlier album, Captiva.
