New Show: Three Trapped Tigers in Birmingham
Almost five long years since the release of their acclaimed debut album Route One or Die, London’s Three Trapped Tigers announce the release of their second full-length, Silent Earthling, due April 1st on Superball Music.
For the unacquainted, Three Trapped Tigers are a band for which genres and labels struggle to keep up; they move – often at breakneck speed – from screeching, effect-laden guitars, an arsenal of glistening sci-fi synths, pummelling sub-bass, colossal riffs and audacious drum patterns that both underpin and define their unique sound. On stage they are something of a vortex, creating a swirling mass of layered sounds that sucks one in, possessing that rare ability of managing to sound complex and fluid whilst eschewing any feelings of pomposity or sterility.
In the last 5 years it has been a combination of touring and live experiences, as well as a rich and impressive series of collaborations and touring with the likes of Deftones and Dillinger Escape Plan. The group worked with Brian Eno and Karl Hyde of Underworld, using Brian’s ‘Oblique Strategies’ during the writing stages of Silent Earthling, something that proved an invaluable way of forcing the group out of their comfort zones.
THREE TRAPPED TIGERS PLAY THE RAINBOW BIRMINGHAM ON SAT 23RD APRIL 2016. TICKETS ON SALE 9AM FRI 29TH JANUARY HERE.
