Infrared Riding Hood is the fourth and final studio album by the alternative rock band Tad. It was released in 1995 on EastWest/Elektra Records. This album was the follow-up to their major label debut, Inhaler. However, despite enthusiasm and hopes for a long-awaited commercial breakthrough, their A&R representative was fired, and 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.
