The sophomore release “Catacombs After Party” from psychedelic garage rock quartet Tiger High is available now, via Trashy Creatures Records / Burger Records.
Tiger High is a tight knit group of musicians all born and raised in the music mecca of Memphis, TN. The group is composed of Jake Vest (Jack Oblivian, The Trashed Romeos), drummer Greg Roberson (Reigning Sound, Arthur Lee’s Love, The Trashed Romeos, Jack Oblivian, Compulsive Gamblers) and longtime musical partners, Toby Vest and Greg Faison.
The bands new record is currently climbing the CMJ Top 200 chart. As of December 11, 2012, “Catacombs After Party” moved up 45 slots to #65.
The band’s debut record “Myth Is This” was released in April 2012, peaking at #67 on the CMJ Top 200 charts and described by Paste Magazine as a record that “…sounds like Phil Spector manning the faders for a crackling indie band.”
The band is led by drummer Roberson, who has acquired an impressive resume as the original drummer for Reigning Sound, as well as his work with Rich Reatard (The Reatards, Lost Sounds) and Jack Oblivian in the Knaughty Knights. Roberson also logged time as a member of Jack & Greg Oblivian's Compulsive Gamblers, Jack Oblivian's Tennessee Tearjerkers, and worked with sixties psychedelic icon Arthur Lee until Lee’s untimely death in late 2006.
“Catacombs After Party” is available as a fifteen-song cassette (through a joint venture between Memphis, TN-based Trashy Creatures Records and Fullerton, CA's Burger Records) or as a twelve-song CD. Both offerings from Tiger High are available through the Trashy Creatures Records secure web store or for digital download through the Trashy Creatures Records digital store.
