Tiger Army Tickets for Sale

Very few bands can be categorized into psychobilly band category and Tiger Army is one of them. Tiger Army band was formed in 1995 in San Francisco, California. Earlier there were five band members naming Joel Day and Geoff Kresge playing Stand-up bass, Adam Carson, London May and Fred Hell playing Drums. But in the course of time now there are only three members naming Nick 13, Jeff Roffredo and James Meza popularly know as Wasted James. All these three members joined the group when all other members have fallen apart. Tiger Army played their first show on 29th March 1996, at renowned venue 924 Gilman Street in Berkeley, California. And this concert was a complete sold out and still it's very difficult to get the tickets to their show. After getting the much needed limelight they did various concerts around California with "AFI" and "English", "The Meteors" psychobilly pioneers. After the concert they were signed by Chapter Eleven Records which proved very beneficial for their career.

Then in summer of 1996 the band recorded their first self-titled vinyl record EP, which is now referred to as the Temptation EP. Soon this EP fell into the hands of Tim Armstrong, the owner of Hellcat Records who signed them for their album. It was in January 1999 when the band recorded their first self-titled full-length, Tiger Army. The album was a great success and sold millions of copies. But soon this celebration was cut short in October when the Stand-up bassist and founding member Joel Day left the band prior to being signed. His exit marked the entrance of Quakes stand-up bassist Rob Peltier. During California's mini-tour for promoting the album, Nick 13 asked Geoff Kresge, to join the band and play stand-up bass with them. Geoff accepted the invitation and joined as a permanent member a few months later.

After two years of hibernation Tiger Army geared up for their second album titled Tiger Army II: Power of Moonlite in 2001. After the completion of recording London May was replaced with Fred Hell. But on 10th March 2003 Fred Hell was shot four times by armed robbers who broke into his friend's apartment in Chino, California. This shocking incident shook the base of the band as a bullet became lodged in his brain, making it necessary for him to go through physical therapy before he could play drums again. This was the time when band was in the process of recording their third album Tiger Army III: Ghost Tigers Rise. This album was delayed for months as they were waiting for him to recover. Soon his injuries proved serious thus then band decided to hire a studio drummer, Mike Fasano, to play on the album. In September 2004, Geoff Kresge too departed from the band focusing on his new record label, Dead Body Records. Herein he was busy recruiting new members for a new band called Viva Hate. Currently the band is busy writing songs for their fourth album, which is planned to release this summer.
