Tigers Jaw Release New Album Charmer Today via Run For Cover Records

Summer North America Tour Kicks off June 16th

Scranton, Pennsylvania indie-rock band Tigers Jaw released their newest full-length  Charmer today via Run For Cover Records. Charmer firmly establishes Tigers Jaw as a band to watch in the coming months, especially as they prepare for several weeks of touring including a run with Pity Sex and a full US tour with Touché Amoré and Dads (all tour dates below).

Pitchfork gave the record a 7.1, saying “Tigers Jaw are beating indie rock lifers at their own game by maintaining the appealing structural songwriting aspects of their roots—melodic quality control, instrumental economy, and the belief this stuff should be MTV-friendly even if that forum isn’t going anywhere near bands like them.”  Alternative Press calls Charmer “an occasionally brooding and more suave effort that’s also the best full-length they’ve produced to date”.

On their third studio full-length, Charmer, Tigers Jaw went into the legendary Studio 4 in Conshohocken, PA with Will Yip (Title Fight, Circa Survive, La Dispute) to record 11 new tracks and re-record the song “Distress Signal” from Run For Cover’s 2011 Mixed Signals compilation.  Two of the tracks on Charmer appeared in late 2013 on the Hum/Cool 7″ on Run For Cover Records. Charmer is available at Run For Cover Records, in Germany at  FinestVinyl, and in Japan at Ice Grills Records.

Known for their undeniably down-to-earth charm, Tigers Jaw somehow manages to be part Fleetwood Mac, part Saves the Day, working the odd-sounding combination to their full advantage.  With their boy-girl harmonies, chunky guitars and shimmering organs, it’s tough not to immediately feel the impact of their music and even more difficult to suppress the urge to sing along.
