Biography

Tiger Army is a psychobilly band from California. They have a very devoted following, as evidenced by the hundreds of photos of Tiger Army-related tattoos that can be found on the band’s MySpace page and website. Their fourth album Music From Regions Beyond spawned the band’s first radio single, “Forever Fades Away,” which went to #1 on L.A.’s influential KROQ FM. The video for the track was seen on MTV2 and Fuse TV.

Tiger Army played their first show in 1996 at the Bay Area’s legendary punk collective, 924 Gilman Street, known as the venue where everyone from Green Day to Rancid got their start. The gig saw them opening for AFI, who lent Nick 13 their drummer, Adam Carson. Rancid’s Tim Armstrong took notice of Nick 13’s songs via a series of demos (later collected as The Early Years EP) and signed Tiger Army to his Hellcat Records imprint strictly on the strength of Nick’s songs and vision knowing full well he had yet to secure a steady lineup. The first Tiger Army album followed in late 1999.

The fledgling psychobilly scene in North America took flight shortly thereafter. Songs like “Nocturnal” and “True Romance” presaged the dark palette that would paint much of underground music in the coming year. Geoff Kresge (ex-AFI) came onboard on stand-up after the first album’s release. Now based in Los Angeles, Tiger Army embarked upon eighteen months of touring in support of II: Power of Moonlite, including trips to Europe and Japan and sharing stages with Dropkick Murphys, Reverend Horton Heat and The Damned.
