Tiger Army performing classic album at Octoberflame III

So, this Halloween weekend, Tiger Army is playing at The Grove of Anaheim. They will be joined by Jack Grisham (TSOL) & The West Coast Dukes and Throw Rag on the first night (October 30th), and Mad Sin and Hillbilly Casino on Halloween night. But that’s not all.

Tiger Army has confirmed they will perform their classic II: Power Of Moonlite from beginning to end on Halloween.

These two dates will be the only time you can see Tiger Army this year (and October 31st will be the only time you can hear II in its entirety), due to Nick 13’s 2011 debut solo album.

Why did they choose the name Tiger Army?

Ever wonder where some bands come up with their band names?  Well, we do, and we’re sick of sitting around scratching our heads about it.  We’re hitting the streets (aka. “Internet”) to find the origins behind some of the more bizarre, intriguing or just plain random band names in the scene.  Every Wednesday we’ll be pulling the curtain back on a different band and this week it’s Nor-Cal Psychobilly mainstays Tiger Army.

According to frontman Nick 13 in an interview with Hot Topic, Nick mentions that “the Tiger is a solitary, independent animal and that the spirit is represented in the people who find their way out of the mainstream into different kinds of alternative culture or subculture, the people who are searching for something, who don’t just except what is handed to them. That’s the Tiger Army, all the people who share that spirit and relate to our music. The rest of the human race are cows, sheep. herd animals with a herd mentality.” There you go!

octoberflame1Tiger Army is proud to announce the second annual Octoberflame festival! Like 2008, the shows will take place at the end of October, including Halloween night, but unlike ’08 the shows take place in Orange County AND Los Angeles! Tiger Army will be supported by top acts handpicked by Tiger Army’s Nick 13, including .45 Grave, Milwaukee Wildmen and more, with new guests being announced right up until October!
