Tigers Jaw is an American rock band from Scranton, Pennsylvania, formed in 2005. They released a 7" vinyl, "Spirit Desire", in 2009, on Tiny Engines.[1] On March 21, 2013, Tigers Jaw announced that they will be going on hiatus. However, on August 6, 2013, Run for Cover Records posted that the band never officially stated that they were going to break up. The band would still be making music. Since, they have recorded a new album with all of the original members entitled Charmer which was released in June 2014.[2] The band is set to release their fifth studio album Spin on May 19, 2017 followed by a U.S. tour starting the same day.[citation needed]

Early years and Tigers Jaw (2006–12)

The band's name is a reference to a song by lo-fi band The Microphones. They also have a number of songs whose titles reference songs by the band.

AbsolutePunk gave their self-titled album 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. Aforementioned opener "The Sun" is one of the better tracks on the album, offering up a well-organized mix of Tigers Jaw's two personas."[3]

Another punk music website, Punknews.org, in their critique of their second eponymous album, felt that the tracks "'Plane vs. Tank vs. Submarine' and 'Chemicals' were particularly notable for "solid guitar work in the form of weeping, goosebump-inducing solos. Strong vocal harmonies and bouncy guitar work carry both "I Saw Water" and "Heat" to heights other bands would have a hard time reaching."[4]

Charmer (2013–present)

On March 21, 2013, Tigers Jaw made an announcement on their tumblr:

Many fans interpreted this announcement to mean that the band was breaking up. However, Ben Walsh (vocals, guitar) and Brianna Collins (vocals, keyboards) have since clarified that they will continue doing Tigers Jaw as a two piece. Members of Basement filled in for former members of Tigers Jaw during their 2013 UK tour.

Tigers Jaw announced their newest studio album, Charmer, on March 21, 2014 along with the single "Nervous Kids". Charmer reached #49 on the Billboard Charts. They played a U.S. tour with Touché Amoré and Dads in Summer 2014.

They went on a U.S. tour with Lemuria and Somos in Spring 2015. In May 2015, it was announced that Tigers Jaw would be touring the U.S. with New Found Glory and Yellowcard in the Fall of 2015. In June 2015, the band played in Brazil and performed three acoustic shows in New York, Philadelphia, and Somerville. Tigers Jaw toured Australia in July 2015. In August 2015, Tigers Jaw toured in the UK/Europe with Foxing. In fall of 2015, Tigers Jaw opened for co-headliners New Found Glory and Yellowcard on their U.S. tour. The band has done various acoustic shows and is scheduled to do another UK/Europe tour with Basement in February and March 2016.

On March 22, 2017, spin was announced for release on May 19 through Black Cement Records with a U.S. tour starting the same day.[6]
