Proclaimed by Kerrang Magazine as ‘this year’s hottest property’ Tiger
Please are gearing up to release their debut album ’The Narrator’ in 2011.
Fronted by the charismatic Leon Sanford, Tiger Please released their debut
EP ‘They Don’t Change Under Moonlight’ in Winter 2009, which saw them
featured for the first time in Rock Sound (8/10), Kerrang (KKKK), Big
Cheese (4/5) and gained them spot plays on BBC Radio 1. They opened up the
new year by appearing on the cover mount in January’s
Rock Sound, with a full page exposure piece, and Classic Rock magazines.
Classic Rock described their sound as being ‘big...anthemic...melodic’,
summing up many opinions of the bands debut release.
Follow up EP, 2010’s ‘Seasons’, was recorded with Romesh Dodangoda at
Longwave and both the band and the release have been supported well by
Kerrang (’an exhilarating concept EP - KKKK’), Rock Sound, Big Cheese
(’the sky is the limit’ - 5/5) and online press too - notably at
Punktastic.com who described the band as ‘like a time bomb waiting to go
off’. Their first video, for ‘Autumn Came The Fall’, was viewed over 5000
times during it’s online exclusive on the front page of Kerrang.com, and
has gone on to feature in the Top 5 most requested UK tracks on both
Kerrang TV and Lava TV. Dan P Carter headed the radio support by
playing ‘Winter And The Storyteller’ on his Radio 1 Rock Show and
compatriots Kids In Glass Houses picked the band for a live session as
part of their co-host slot on Bethan Elfyn’s Radio 1 show where the band
showcased material from both releases.
Kerrang continued their excellent support by naming the band as one of the
must see up and coming bands of Download Festival, the band’s first
appearance at a major festival, and awarding their live set with a KKKK
review. The magazine also included a full page Tiger Please poster as part
of their ’New Breed’ series. The quintet made their second major festival
appearance at Sonisphere later in the Summer.
Having supported the likes of Kids In Glass Houses, Attack! Attack! And
Francesqa, Tiger Please are opening 2011 with a full UK tour in February
alongside The Crave and then embark on a mammoth March / April tour
supporting Funeral For A Friend and Rise To Remain.
