Whether speaking of the latest album III: Ghost Tigers Rise or Tiger Army in general, the story can be summed up in one word - perseverance. Members shot, members changed, situations that would have finished other bands a thousand times over and still the band has recently delivered its best album to date under the guidance of singer/guitarist/songwriter Nick 13.
III: Ghost Tigers Rise is the band's most distinguished work yet, and while it rests comfortably within the “psychobilly” style that Tiger Army is credited with bringing to the attention of the United States underground, it also transcends genre with its intoxicating mix of vintage punk, rock'n'roll and bittersweet melody. One might hear strains of 80's darkpop or postpunk (think Smiths, The Cure, or Depeche Mode) or a hillbilly pedal steel guitar, but the emphasis is squarely on songwriting, never on novelty or gimmick. Atmospheric and dark, vibrant and beautiful, songs like “Ghostfire” or “Rose of the Devil's Garden” show a band that is connected with the lineage of the past's great rock'n'roll and pop, but the band is no “retro” act - 13 has crafted a sound that is both distinct and unique, no simple feat in a time where rehashing without innovation is the order of the day.
