Biography

Boston, United States (2003 – present)

Daniel Striped Tiger are a punk band from Boston, Massachusetts.

Formed in October 2003, DST started with the motivation of participating in a DIY punk scene that its members grew up in. DST is influenced by much of the early ’90s emo/post-hardcore scene (Dischord, Gravity), as well as bands such as Orchid, Wolves, 400 Years, etc. After a handful of shows and time spent writing, the band headed to Dead Air Studios in Amherst, MA to record a 10 song, self-released demo. This release of harsh noisy punk was handmade and distributed.

Later in 2004, the first 7”, “The Desert Bird” was recorded. This was released by Dan Madden, who subsequently joined the band on drums shortly thereafter. These four songs focused more on rhythm and dynamics than the previous demo. After the recording of “The Desert Bird”, the band ventured on their first East Coast tour with La Mi Vida Violenta, a six-person noise/dance/jazz explosion.

With the onset of Dan on drums, the band began writing material for their first full-length album, “Condition”. This time period marked one of progress and evolution for the band, and much of their songs took on new directions in structure and sound. As with their past releases, the band returned to Dead Air Studios and spent a significant time working with Will Killingsworth. Recording had become an organic experience for DST, where many songs were either completed or transformed in the studio. Horns, extra percussion, and other auxiliary instrumentation was used throughout the album. This, along with angular guitar riffs and stop-start time changes earmarked the album as being more jazzy or noise induced than previous efforts.
