    Tiger Army has become one of my all time favorite bands in the past four years so its about time they get a thread on here.

    "Tiger Army is an American psychobilly band based in Los Angeles, California. The group was formed in 1996 in Berkeley, California, and its only constant member and lead songwriter is singer/guitarist Nick 13. The band has released five studio albums and one EP." - Wikipedia

    Very stoked for the new record. Can’t wait to hear a single and see what the vibe will be like.

  3. Same. I hope it’s a good mix of ‘V’ and ‘Music from Regions Behind’.

    The wife agreed to go see them and Brian Fallon at Octoberflame this year! I’m stoked. Going to Universal the following day too. Nice little trip out of town that should be.

    That sounds like one hell of a vacation. Jealous!

    Agreed on hoping for a healthy mix of the last two records. I adored V front to back, but I wouldn’t be opposed to having a few faster/more aggressive songs back in the mix.

  5. Yeah, V is fantastic but i agree, hoping for a little more faster stuff on this new one. Nick needs another solo album too. That dude knows how to pull off that country sound.

    If I had to guess, I'm expecting Retrofuture to skew more along the lines of the last album than anything before it. Hopefully we get a single in the next couple of weeks.
     
  7. They’re going to be announcing some stuff soon so hopefully there’s a new song with one of the announcements. I know they’ll be announcing more tiki mugs per their teaser. I should probably order one lol.

    Those tiki mugs are sick.
     
  9. There’s one for sale with a signed vinyl on eBay for $500. You should probably get it.

  12. Been listening to III today and it’s such a shame about the production because there are SO MANY good songs on this album. I try to convince myself I’m listening to a live version of the album. The hand slapping of the stand up bass is so prominent on this album for some reason.

    Would love another nick 13 album. I feel like this new album might have a cool surf rock vibe to it

  14. I can see that. Especially after the last EP.

    Here's a quote from Nick 13 about the sound of Retrofuture:
    “Retrofuturism is generally a visual aesthetic, but it got me thinking, it’s the perfect description for our sound! The gear and instruments are mostly 1950s and 60s, but while the tones may be classic, we’ve always tried to push into uncharted territory musically with each release. So the idea behind this record was to create our version of what someone might imagine future rock ’n’ roll sounding like, but from the perspective of the mid-20th century”.

    That sounds like a natural evolution from the sound of V, and that's exciting. I'll always love the first two records the most, as those were my entry point into the band, but I'm also a huge fan of where they're going sonically these days.

  16. I mean, I guess it’s all in the title of the album. Sounds super interesting. I wonder what the lyrics will be like. Hopefully we get a song and pre-orders soon too.

    What’s up with their Merch store nothing yet right?
     
  18. They just keep saying “soon” and teasing another tiki mug release.
     
  19. The new Tiki Mug drops on Friday. Hopefully a new song too.

    Knowing how Nick 13’s tastes have revolved over the years, I fully expect this to be sort of an outlier sonically.

    I think this is just a taste of something new until it drops. Based off his description of the new stuff there’s nothing “retrofuture” sounding about the song, so I fully anticipate a different direction with the album.
