THE TIGER & ME ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM AND TOUR

Melbourne sextet The Tiger & Me weave a rare mixture of styles and sounds as three lead vocalists exchange and merge tunes from whispered ballad to fevered maelstrom, from charming pop to explosive rock.

In 2012 they signed to ABC Music's imprint label Four|Four (Tim Rogers, Boy in a Box), before collaborating with ARIA-nominated roducer Steven Schram (Little Birdy, The Cat Empire, Little Red) to create their second full-length album, The Drifter's Dawn, which is due for release on October 19.

The Tiger & Me's ascension to prominence commenced with the release of their critically-lauded debut album From a Liar to a Thief in 2010, which in turn led to breakthrough appearances at Port Fairy and Apollo Bay Music Festivals. 2011 left no rest for the wicked as they toured Australia whilst releasing two EPs of a planned 3-part series, The Howling Fire and The Silent City. The series reaches a climactic conclusion with the new album The Drifter's Dawn.

Whilst their intent with this record was to capture the notorious intensity of their live shows, several weeks in the studio also allowed for the opportunity to develop and explore the songs. The Drifter's Dawn was recorded sequentially from start to finish, each song being fully completed before moving to the next. Some took days, others only hours.

The Tiger & Me are now set to once again take to the road in a string of performances around the country to promote their new record.
