After the news of Angel Witch coming back, now, another cult band from the NWOBHM age is also releasing a new album, called Ritual. It is the Tygers’ 12th full-length release and it will hit the streets on November 22nd through Mighty Music. The album was recorded at ex-Tygers’ guitarist Fred Purser’s studio in Newcastle Upon Tyne and mixing and additional production was again conducted by Soren Andersen, most recently known for his role as Glenn Hughes’ guitarist.
Only remaining original member Robb Weir, sounds confident: “Every album you set out to create is special. Ritual is just that bit extra special! It’s taken two studio postponements, but we now have the right result…..a claw ripping, gigantic sabre tooth Tyger kind of an album which you’re gonna love! Don’t be shy to say you think it’s the best…. because it is!”
The release will be preceded by the single White Lines on 12” vinyl, the ‘b’ side of which celebrates 40 years since the release of the first Tygers single Don’t Touch Me There with Fred Purser and Soren Andersen joining the band on guitar.
