About TIGERS CAN BITE YOU
A staple of the Silverlake music scene, Tigers Can Bite You are redefining the parameters of indie rock. Featuring former members of Fiver and Space Mtn, the trio (and sometimes quartet) capture the essence of Death Cab-ish indie rock, while setting themselves apart with electronics that have more in common with Ladytron and M83. The results are dynamic - Tigers don't alienate their audience, but they are also not afraid to go outside the standard indie pop formula. The electronics are subtle, yet boast a strong presence, turning every track into a mini-epic. With song lengths barely over three minutes, tracks can end before they've finished building up, leaving you wanting more. In 2008, the band signed with New and Used Records, who will release the EP Taking and Running Away on September 30, and a full length entitled Steve Ward Hears Voices on October 30. Playing venues from the Troubadour to Pehrspace, Tigers Can Bite You have shared the stage with Silversun Pickups, Irving, Sea Wolf, Earlimart, The Movies, the Airborne Toxic Event, Radar Bros, Division Day, the Happy Hollows, Rademacher, and the Watson Twins.
