Tigers Jaw – “Guardian” Mar 22nd 2017, 17:19, by Jason Tate Tigers Jaw will release their new album, spin, on May 19th via Black Cement Records. The album was produced by Will Yip and they’ve released the first single “Guardian” via NPR.
When bands fall apart, sometimes they grow back through the broken pieces like ivy through cobblestone. Tigers Jaw — now all up-capped — went through the pains of a breakup (that wasn’t quite a breakup), losing three members who stayed through the recording of 2014’s mellow-yet-dramatic Charmer. It was a loss, but also a signal, turning the band from pop-punks into thoughtful songwriters mining the sorrows of pop, particularly the thematic and sonic tumult of Fleetwood Mac.
