NWOBHM (New Wave Of British Heavy Metal) legends TYGERS OF PAN TANG have inked a deal with Mighty Music and the Target Group family. The band is currently at Newcastle’s Blast Studio working on a new, self-titled album for an August release. A European tour will follow the CD’s arrival.
Commented TYGERS OF PAN TANG mainman Robb Weir: “This is a landmark album for the TYGERS. Self-titled and self-produced, we feel we have written some pretty special hard rock songs. The sound is classic TYGERS and the new cover version we have chosen to record is spectacular — after all, ‘Love Potion #9’ is 34 years old. It’s a big year for the band, with 10 shows in South America in March, then festival’s in Chicago, Ibiza, Gent, Alicante, a British tour starting October 21 and a European tour we’re going to be applying to the time lords for membership.”
Michael H. Andersen, CEO of Mighty Music, added: “It’s no less than a landmark for our company to have signed TYGERS OF PAN TANG. Having worked with and still working with artists like Mike Tramp, VOLBEAT and PRETTY MAIDS, it is a great honor to welcome the TYGERS to our family. After visiting the band in the Blast Studio in Newcastle, I have no doubts this is gonna be a classic hard rock album my staff and I will be very proud of releasing.”
