Melbourne sextet The Tiger & Me weave a rare mixture of styles and sounds as three lead vocalists exchange and merge tunes from whispered ballad to fevered maelstrom, from charming pop to explosive, dirty rock.
Post Launch Goodness
Well its been a very busy couple of months here in Tiger land and it's looking like it's going to be quite a fruitful and busy year ahead of us. I think the band is like one of those giant queen ants that keeps giving birth to things in order to keep her tiny ant kingdom alive.
We've just recently released our first of three EP's at the Toff in Town last Saturday. Great gig. Thank you to all that attended and showed your support! We are very much appreciative. Much like that queen ant is whenever people come to her gigs.
Do you think there are tiny Taiko drumming ants in the ant world? If so that queen ant should totally hire the team that we got for the launch because they were amazing!!
Toshi and the gang did an amazing job on Saturday. http://www.wadaikorindo.com/ is his website if anyone is interested in Japanese Taiko lessons, they are a heap of fun. A heap. Bring all your tiny ant friends!
Also, a big thanks to the Tiger brass section which consisted of the amazing Shannon Barnett, Liam McGorry and Andrew Szentandrassy.
Once again, all you ants out there (you know who you are) should totally hire a killer brass section like this as they make you sound incredible.
The next few months see the band head interstate in celebration of the release of 'The Howling Fire' EP. You can find tour dates here: http://www.thetigerandme.com.au/gigs.
And very soon we'll be heading back to the studio to record the next EP!
Which after writing this blog, I kind of feel like it should be called 'Ant Queen: Queen of the Ants'
p.s I'm very tempted to upload a picture of a queen ant, but while searching for a pic of them I realised they are quite disguisting and always look depressed or in pain.. This was a horrible analogy..
