AND ANNOUNCE UK HEADLINE TOUR
NEW ALBUM “AS BLUE AS INDIGO” OUT JUNE 18TH VIA BLAME RECORDINGS
Tigercub came crashing back into public consciousness earlier this year with the massive “Beauty” and “Beat On My Heart (Like A Bass Drum)”, their first new material since 2017 and both forging a powerful statement of intent. Last month they also announced the news of a much-anticipated second album, “As Blue As Indigo”, set for release on June 18th through Blame Recordings.
The record was written and produced by the band’s own Jamie Stephen Hall, engineered and co-produced by Adrian Bushby (Foo Fighters, Muse) and subsequently mixed by Tom Dalgety (Pixies, Ghost, Royal Blood). Written over two years, “As Blue As Indigo” champions introspection drawing on the subjectivity of colour.
Tigercub today share the excellent third single from the album, “Blue Mist In My Head”, an expansive outing that pairs soft, lilting vocals and deeply personal lyrics to striking musical dynamics and one of their strongest chorus hooks yet.
Jamie had the following to say about the themes behind their latest song:
“Lyrically “Blue Mist In My Head” is about coping with depression whilst feeling alienated and disconnected from others. That sense of feeling like I’m on auto-pilot going through the motions of life – I’m not really there, I’m not in the room, I’ve disappeared completely.”
The band have also announced a headline tour for later in the year and tickets will go on sale next Friday 16th April at 9am.
