Tiger Army cancels this year’s Octoberflame festival in order to focus on new album

For the first time since its inception 7 years ago, Tiger Army will not be putting on their Octoberflame festival this year.  The bright side is that it’s because they’re hard at work on their first album in 7 years!  Here’s the full update from the band:

“To everyone who’s a part of the Tiger Army… Good news and bad news – the bad news is that for the first time since it started in 2008, Tiger Army’s Octoberflame festival will NOT be happening in 2014.

The GOOD news is that Octoberflame is on hold this year so that work can progress with the fifth Tiger Army album, out in 2015!

Octoberflame has happened six times thusfar. Constantly evolving, it began in Orange County, but has included other locations over the years like Los Angeles, Pomona and as far north as San Francisco. It’s ranged from two nights to six. It’s featured special sets like the performance of the entire ‘II: Power of Moonlite’ album, or the ‘Early Years’ set with guest drummer Adam Carson.

Whether it was playing deep cuts (EVERY song recorded by Tiger Army has been performed over the various years), debuting one-off covers from influences like the Ramones, onstage musical guests, top support acts or “meet & greets”, we’ve always tried to deliver the most special shows possible in recognition of the support you all have given us.

The one thing we didn’t do was play new Tiger Army songs. To me, that’s what we really need to make the next Octoberflame special. As we did more unique things each year, it became a bigger challenge to deliver something new. More and more time was invested in preparation, time that will now be used to make a new Tiger Army record a reality!

I’m happy to report that many of these new songs have now been written. I’m so excited for you all to hear them – I waited for true inspiration to come and it did. Getting these songs to the studio and bringing them into the world is being planned now.

For the past few years, you’ve traveled to us from all over the world – when the new album arrives next year, Tiger Army will once again tour to you, like we did for so many years.

Halloween traces back to ancient autumn festivals that celebrate the cycle of death and rebirth from the earth. A time of great renewal is coming for us and it’s drawing nearer…

So THANK YOU to all who’ve stayed loyal – just like Tiger Army, Octoberflame will be back!”

The band’s latest album “Music From Regions Beyond” was released in 2007 on Hellcat Records.

Nick 13 on the next Tiger Army album

In a recent interview with Washington Times CommunitiesNick 13 revealed that he has been writing new material for a new Tiger Army album, but is not sure when it will be released as he is busy working on his second solo album, which he plans to begin recording this year. He states:

“There definitely will be another Tiger Army record, I’m just not sure when. I’ve been in the process of writing my second solo album for a while and that’s pretty close to being written. So I definitely plan to enter the studio this year for that. Originally when I did the first solo record, I was going to come right back to Tiger Army, but I learned so much and I was so inspired and I was enjoying it so much that it didn’t seem right to switch gears at that time. But I’ve been writing Tiger Army material the whole time. So, when it is time to sit down and start putting together a Tiger Army record, I already have a lot of cool stuff to use as a base.”

It’s been almost six years since Tiger Army released their last studio album, Music From Regions Beyond, on Hellcat Records. Nick last released his self-titled solo album in 2011 on Sugar Hill Records.

Tiger Army announced back in September that a new album would be in the works, following the completion of lead singer Nick 13‘s second solo album.

Since this report, we really haven’t heard much from the Tiger Army camp, except for news of the annual Octoberflame tour, which wrapped up at the end of last month.

I, for one, can only go so long without Tiger Army on the brain, so I thought I would post some shots I grabbed from the band’s tour stop in San Francisco on October 20th this year.
