UK HEADLINE TOUR STARTS THIS WEEKEND

Tigercub’s second album, “As Blue As Indigo”, landed in June to rave reviews from rock and alt press internationally. The record, that Upset calls one to “cement them at the top of the food chain” and has included in their albums of the year, was written and produced by the band’s own Jamie Stephen Hall, engineered and co-produced by Adrian Bushby (Foo Fighters, Muse) and subsequently mixed by Tom Dalgety (Pixies, Ghost, Royal Blood). Written over two years, “As Blue As Indigo” champions introspection drawing on the subjectivity of colour.

Available on LP, CD and digital formats, you can purchase the record HERE

More information on Tigercub:

Back in 2018 the Brighton-based three piece were on the crest of a wave. As well as regular plays on daytime Radio 1 and a Rockest Record from the Radio 1 Rock Show, years of near non-stop touring had seen them sell out The Scala and play a triumphant hometown show at The Concorde 2. On their last EP, Evolve Or Die, they’d pushed the live-wired sound of their 2016 debut, Abstract Figures In The Dark, massively broadening their sonic palette and delivering Tigercub’s pile-driving guitar gut-punch within an intense digital static.

It seemed like a good place to put things on pause for a bit and in the downtime the band’s lead songwriter and frontman Jamie Hall started tinkering with his own brand of gonzoid psych-pop under the name Nancy. Intended only as a DIY experiment, the project massively took off. Nancy was Hype Machine’s most blogged artist, Hall bagged two record deals and played a string of dates around the world. Not bad for something he’d done in his bedroom chiefly to keep his songwriting chops up. Enough to keep you busy you’d think, but Hall was itching to get back to the day job, determined to use all he’d learned from the solo project to further Tigercub on their return. And what a return it is.
