Biography

Scranton PA, United States (2005 – present)

Tigers Jaw are an American indie rock band from Scranton, Pennsylvania that formed in 2005. The band is currently comprised of vocalist/guitarist Ben Walsh and vocalist/keyboardist Brianna Collins. The band’s name is a reference to a song by lo-fi band The Microphones. Tigers Jaw originally consisted of Walsh, Collins, drummer Mike May, vocalist/guitarist Adam McIlwee and bassist Dennis Mishko. May stayed with the band for only a few months, never recording any material with them; and was replaced by Pat Brier the same year.

The band’s debut album was entitled Belongs to the Dead; and was released on Summersteps Records in 2006. The website AbsolutePunk gave their debut record a generally positive review, noting that “Tigers Jaw is fueled by emotionally-driven lyrics brought to life by vocalist Adam McIlwee, whose voice is one of those that reveal passion while at the same time giving the impression that he’s barely trying.” A self-titled album followed in 2008; which was released through Prison Jazz Records. Between their second and third albums, the band released an EP, Spirit Desire, via Tiny Engines; as well as a split seven-inch with Balance and Composure. Their third album, Two Worlds, was released on Run For Cover Records in 2010.

From 2010 to 2013, the band partook in several split releases and EPs. This included two acoustic releases for the Run For Cover Acoustic Series (both 2010), a split with The Sidekicks (2011), a seven-inch with two new songs, “Gypsy” and “Jimmy Piersall” (2011); a split with Tiny Empires (2011) and a four-way split release with Code Orange Kids

    "yeah this band doesn't do anything for me without adam" - I'm afraid I will feel the same way but I will give them a shot live in August because Charmer has a few pretty damn good tracks.

    Am I the only person who thinks Two Worlds is their best album?

    belongs to the dead (the un-remastered version) is like the record of all records. I've made it my life goal to own that record.

    Was not too keep on that, but since the previous members left I feel like Tigers Jaw have new tone and sound to it, which is well, sadder. And it's just up to one's taste, because it is one of those albums you have to listen when you are not in a happy place.

    Charmer was a serious let-down compared to their other works, but it's still a decent album

    Adam leaving the band really sucks. He was such a big part of so many great songs... And yeah I get the same vibe, facehugger.
