Tigers Jaw Spin Yes! new music from Tigers Jaw, we're big fans and this new set of songs is excellent. Addictive and melancholic indie-punk that's so easy to get into thanks to the songwriting and vocals from Brianna Collins and Ben Walsh, they've really hit a stride with this one. "Specifically, it deals with the struggle of being someone's support system while dealing with your own anxieties and issues. When you neglect your own mental health by channeling your focus into other things, putting your head down and forcing normalcy into work and relationships, those issues come back stronger when you run out of distractions. Simple, everyday tasks can become significant sources of anxiety." - Tigers Jaw on the song Guardian Black Cement Records CD | LP
Tigers Jaw Belongs to the Dead Tigers Jaw's first first release remastered and available for the first time on vinyl Although not as widely recognized as the bands Self-Titled follow up, Belongs to the Dead is Tigers Jaw's first release. Showcasing early, charmingly lo-fi versions of songs that would become some of the bands most revered work, the original release suffered from never being properly mixed or mastered. Original recordings of songs like The Sun, Danielson, and Jet Alone show a pair of talented songwriters finding their sound, offering an intimate glimpse of the style and aesthetics that would later come to define the band. http://www.facebook.com/tigersjaw Run For Cover LP
Tigers Jaw Gypsy / Jimmy Piersall instock now Tigers Jaw's contribution to the Run For Cover Records Singles Subscription Series is another entry in their inimitable, slightly nerdy, heartrending catalogue. The band takes us through a grungy version of Fleetwood Mac's "Gypsy," with the increasingly present haunting backing vocals of keyboardist Brianna Collins. The B-side offers an intimate acoustic take on their song "Jimmy Piersall," this time sung entirely by Collins. http://www.facebook.com/tigersjaw Run For Cover 7"
Tigers Jaw Spirit Desire Tigers Jaw's inbetween albums 7" 'Spirit Desire' gets a re-press on Tiny Engines Records on pink vinyl (limited to 350). Tigers Jaw allow their compositions to develop organically. There’s always a killer hook waiting around the corner on this amazing 7-inch – eager to knock you out and steal your heart – but it never fails to present itself in wonderful, unexpected ways. Of course, some things never change; the enveloping buzz of the guitars sets our blood boiling, the rhythm section pounds a hypnotic beat through our skulls and warm keys wash over Spirit Desire in waves of fuzzy sound. Tigers Jaw’s penetrating melodies are still more contagious than an airborne virus and the harmonies give us those sweet, sweet roller coaster highs. Yet none of it would sound so memorable without the band’s subtle restraint and its ability to create tension and excitement in such a short amount of time. Spirit Desire never pulls its punches – it just keeps you guessing when and where those punches are going to land. Spirit Desire was recorded by Vince Ratti (Circa Survive, None More Black, Jena Berlin) at The Skylight Studio and was mastered by Bill Henderson at Azimuth Mastering. www.myspace.com/tigersjaw Tiny Engines 7"
Tigers Jaw Two Worlds Yellow / white / green starburst vinyl from the third press. Aptly titled Two Worlds, Tigers Jaws sophomore full-length draws on the strengths of the band's raw, minimalist atmospheres and driving grunge-rock rhythms, funneling them into a catchy, brooding and brilliantly focused album. Sounding as confident as ever in abandoning dependence on traditional pop structures, songs ebb and flow naturally as the band explores fresh tones and textures. Firmly planted in their own niche of the 90 s-era Midwestern emo sound, Two Worlds probes Superchunk's indie-punk stylings, Weezer's discordant pop moments and the far edges of Kurt Cobain's brain while managing to sound almost nothing like those groups. Chimey clean guitars weave in and out of the mix, juxtaposing a gain guitar laden with thick grit. Standing alone, the tones create familiar Tigers Jaw moods, but when combined, the effect lays the foundation for swelling walls of sound. Pulsing bass fills the low end, locked with the drums in rhythmic unison, alternately tracing guitar lines and stepping forward to grab the listener s car. Similarly, the drumming style perfectly compliments the songwriting with steady beats and measured flash. Lush and resonant cymbal splashes constantly flourish, adding color and a new spaciousness. Keyboards swell in a wave of warmth creating the band s defining ambiance, in parts taking on more adventurous melodies and chord tones. At its core, Two Worlds is a Tigers Jaw album through and through. It evokes many moods the band is known for, but adds a depth that will leave listeners discovering new reasons to love them with each new listen. Run For Cover CD | LP
Tigers Jaw Studio 4 Acoustic Session A lovely 14 track Tigers Jaw acoustic session recorded by Will Yip in Philly's Studio 4 with a live audience! Ben & Brianna played a similar acoustic set in the shop a couple of years ago. these songs broken down like this are pretty special! The record swells with melodic, acoustic versions of painful stories of heartbreak like “Hum” and “Plane vs. Tank vs. Submarine,” and the hard-hitting life lessons found in “Never Saw it Coming,” touching on new and old songs alike. Pensive riffs and quiet melodies teeter delicately between their raw alternative sound and their minimalist indie side. With only personal dedications, poignant harmonies, and soft guitar by the two leads, Studio 4 Acoustic Session exposes Tigers Jaw to their fans in an unparalleled way. Tigers Jaw songs are so delicate even at their most amplified so this acoustic records makes them sound that extra bit special. In stock now ahead of their Kingston shows (plural) on FridayA photo posted by Banquet Records (@banquetrecords) on Aug 1, 2015 at 3:43am PDT Run For Cover LP

Balance And Composure / Tigers Jaw Split Stunning split bewteen two incredible bands. Tigers Jaw who played instore and two days in a row at the Fighting Cocks for us last year. Balance & Composure played the peel for us with Title Fight and blew it apart! Balance And Composure and Tigers Jaw are two bands that have brought uniqueness to today’s ever growing music scene. They have strayed away from styles that have seemed to be overplayed and have offered a fresh new sound for music listeners all over. They have brought a certain honesty and musical awareness into their song writing processes and are able to deliver a product that is genuine and heartfelt, music that means something. Both have been compared to some of the ‘90s most memorable bands, a scene that was a stepping-stone for many of today’s most notable and successful acts. It is not a question of whether these bands will release well-received music, but when it will come. No Sleep Records 12" | CD
