tigers jaw


Tigers Jaw lose three-fifths of their band and the line, “I started this fire and I watched it burn to the ground,” – whether clairvoyant or reactionary – becomes heavy with meaning. Recording as a 5 piece, Tigers Jaw deliver their newest full-length Charmer before the group limps on as a duo; making it easy to see this record as a swansong for the Pennsylvanian band.

The trajectory of this Scranton band is a dilatory process; with members in and out of post-secondary education the band seems to constantly fall short of hitting full stride. With various releases kicking around, including a well received split with Balance and Composure from last summer, Tigers Jaw’s new full-length is dealing with some lofty expectations.
