Infrared Riding Hood is the fifth and final album by the Seattle grunge band Tad. It was released on April 11, 1995 through EastWest/Elektra Records. This album is often regarded as Tad's best work. However, despite enthusiasm and hopes for a long awaited commercial breakthrough, their A&R representative was fired. Within one week, all of her bands, including Tad, were dropped from the label. The album sold poorly, having had very little promotion behind it and being carried by very few stores.
