New album 'Retrofuture' out 9.13.19 on Luna-tone/Rise Records! The Retrofuture Tour is coming to 6 countries & is on sale now!
Tiger Army played their first show at seminal California DIY venue 924 Gilman in 1996. A trio with guitar, stand-up bass & drums led by singer, guitarist & songwriter Nick 13, the band’s sound is a unique blend of punk and Midcentury rock 'n' roll, emphasizing songwriting and melody.
Four albums were released on Hellcat / Epitaph, starting with their self-titled debut in 1999. Heavy touring continued through the end of 2008, when they wrapped the cycle for ‘Music From Regions Beyond’, produced by the legendary Jerry Finn. The album yielded the single “Forever Fades Away” and their highest visibility with favorable reviews in the ‘New York Times’ & a national TV appearance on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’, yet they’ve always been outsiders to the mainstream, authenticity the only priority.
Nick 13 switched gears to play Americana music solo, releasing & touring a self-titled album on Sugar Hill Records in 2011. Tiger Army continued in a limited capacity, still playing “Octoberflame”, a multi-night SoCal festival curated by 13 about to have its 10th year.
In 2015, they recorded 'V •••–', released the following spring on Luna-tone / Rise, touring over four continents. Stylistically, songs range from high-energy stompers to atmospheric ballads, as much Roy Orbison at times as The Ramones. 2018 saw the release of the tiki/surf themed 'Dark Paradise' EP.
