Tigernite's debut album offers up eight rollicking tracks of revved up punchy power pop. From the powerful guitar fueled Million Years, to the angsty anthem No Girls Allowed, to the shimmering fever dream of Drag, Tigernite takes listeners for a ride through colorful gritty landscapes on a rock infused road trip.

With glam sensibilities, a firm foundation in classic guitar rock and expressive, commanding vocals, the band offers glimpses of varied influences ranging from straightforward punk rock hooks to dramatic flourishes of rock opera.

The album's crowning achievement, Witch and its accompanying video have been kicking and screaming on radio waves and podcasts across the country. Biting guitar leads, driving rhythm and acidic growling vocals cut straight to the energetic quick of the group and drop listeners into the middle of the manic and magical Tigernite universe.

Featuring the imaginative and otherworldly artwork of Brian Ellis (Lego, Hasbro), the album cover and booklet provide a dense and saturated map through the strange terrain of each track. Drawing directly from the lyrical content of the record comic book heroes, occult imagery, natural phenomena and cult film coalesce to create a cinematic visual accompaniment.

The album was produced and recorded by Alex Smolinski (Emperors of Wyoming, Lola Ray, The Churchills, NYC Smoke) at Wonder Wonder Sound, with additional tracking by Shane Hochstetler of Howl Street Recordings and Paul Meyer. Tigernite was mastered by Carl Saff of Saff Mastering (Guided by Voices, Off!, Erase Errata, California X, Joan of Arc).

Track Name: Empire

I keep a box of chocolates under my bed to make me feel like a movie star--
I keep this knife in my teeth in case you're not who you say you are

Keep a magic marker spell written down on the soles of my favorite boots
lookin' for the next thing, a good time, get my cake and eat it too

Keep your shows
and your cynical clothes
all the boring talk in between

When you look at my face
don't you make no mistake--
I won't be asleep dream...

I don't wanna be good enough,
or in magazines
don't wanna be no debutante
or homecoming queen...
I just wanna be a Legend--
wanna be conquering--
I just wanna build Empires
because you know

I want I want I want

I want to be King.

Never been one of the boys, ain't never been like one of the girls
I don't care if I can see the moon I know where I stand on the world

Keep my heart on the fire escape, it's callin out in the night--
Valentine on my tomb reads: “It's okay Mom, I'll be just fine.”


Nobody dies and says, “I'm glad I didn't try”...
so laugh if you want, but when you laugh try to look me in the eyes
