TIGERCUB Reveal Support Acts for Upgraded London Show

Brighton trio Tigercub have revealed the support acts for their upcoming show in London…



Brighton trio Tigercub have revealed that Bloody Knees and Calva Louise will be joining them as support for their up-scaled London headline show this Thursday 18th January at The Scala.

The trio play their biggest ever hometown show the following day on January 19th 2018 at Concorde 2 in Brighton supported by Our Girl, Glum, and Sick Joy.

The band have also released a lyric video for “Faking Laughter”, the final track to be taken from their recently released Evolve or Die EP out now on Alcopop! Records.

Speaking about the inspiration behind the trick, front man Jamie Hall said: “Faking laughter is about coping with the absurdity of our post-satire news cycle. We now live in a culture where our politicians and public figures are feeding us bullshit every day, and we all know it’s bullshit, but instead of doing anything we just dutifully carry on with our lives as if it’s not actually happening. It feels like things are so out of control now – the only way to function is to be completely apathetic and indifferent to what we see.

“For the video I cut the song to early computer graphic animations from the 60s & 70s myself. I thought it would work well to contrast old programmed visions of the future as a backdrop to my own surreal/escapist take on life today. I also ran the track through an Oscilloscope – which is a frequency visualiser – to emphasise the cyclic hypnotic feel to the song.”

Tour Dates:

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
