TYGERS OF PAN TANG
Robb Weir is never a man to take what he has for granted. Having led the Tygers since their first album through a plethora of line-up changes he recognises that the current Tygers are probably the strongest since they were at the forefront of the NWOBHM. The original band, who made 4 albums for MCA records, survived the unexpected departure of Jess Cox to run Neat records and later John Sykes, who was bound for Thin Lizzy and a multi-million seller with Whitesnake. What they didn’t survive was their greatest commercial success with the album ‘The Cage’. However, Weir, ever the optimist, formed a new version of the band to both play the old material and write songs that would represent this ‘new’ Tygers. The backbone of the band – Craig Ellis on drums, together with Jack Meille on vocals have now been together for considerably longer than the first Tygers and were joined by Francesco Marras on guitar and Huw Holding on bass for their 2023 album ‘Bloodlines’ an album that is turning up on many ‘Best Album of 2023’ lists.
Now the band are preparing for the release of a live album on Mighty Music in May 2024. The album was recorded in Wales earlier this year and comprises of tracks from their first four albums including their first album ‘Wild Cat’ and the critically lauded ‘Spellbound’ in addition to tracks from the recently released fan favourite ‘Bloodlines’. Recorded entirely by the musicians who comprise the current line-up, it is a tour de force of what made the NWOBHM such a potent force in music. The band will be touring throughout 2024 to promote this live release which like ‘Bloodlines’ has been produced by Tue Madsen.
