TIGER FLOWERS summer '13

Staples of the New York scene, Tiger Flowers kick off their summer touring tonight at Brooklyn hot spot Saint Vitus, alongside Massachusetts grinders Hivesmasher.

Tiger Flowers' summer schedule so far sees the band heading out for three short forays, teaming up with Hivesmasher, Hush, and East of the Wall.

BrooklynVegan have described Tiger Flowers with these words: "The band take influence from elders who pushed the genre into new directions, like Deadguy, Converge, and Rorschach, and add in metal influences rooted in hardcore like Unsane... What emerges is a cocktail of furious hardcore interjected with chaotic blasts of screaming feedback, time changes, doomy riffs and most importantly, delivered with tons of live energy." 

MetalSucks called Tiger Flowers' 2011 debut EP, "one of the most original and arresting releases of the year". The 'Flowers have yet to release any new material since that acclaimed EP, making it all the more exciting that the band are at work now on a new album. Stay tuned for more details.
