TIGER FLOWERS Cruisin' video

"Did Tiger Flowers just create the video of the year? I think so!"

So states Metal Injection today, as the site presents the premiere of Tiger Flowers' video for the song, "Cruisin' 'til the Wheels Fall Off". 

Directed by Steve Leach, the action-packed, two-minute clip casts Tiger Flowers frontman Jesse James Madre in full John Rambo mode, hunting down his hapless bandmates. Madre has credited the Rambo character's plight in First Blood as the original inspiration for the song.

MetalSucks has called Madre, "the best frontman in the Brooklyn scene." BrooklynVegan has likened Tiger Flowers to "elders who pushed the genre into new directions, like Deadguy, Converge, and Rorschach".

Tiger Flowers' debut full-length, Dead Hymns, is out April 8th on Melotov Records, home to releases by The Banner, Ghostlimb, Old Wounds, ACxDC, and more. Dead Hymns was produced by Elliot Geller (Malignancy, Dim Mak) and mastered by Shane Frisby (Turmoil, Revocation).

Tiger Flowers will hit the road in April for a tour of the Eastern US.
