The Tigerlilies

Having recently discovered that a bootleg t-shirt of theirs was being sold in a Karachi bazaar THE TIGERLILIES initiated a global search for the perpetrators, to thank them. In the meantime, the band packed the MOTR pub on a snowy January night to celebrate their latest release, ‘In the Dark’. The post-punk power-pop that is the signature of this band was on full display at the live show, as it is on the new CD. Hailed by CityBeat’s Mike Breen as “starting off with a handful of tracks that are among the best in THE TIGERLILIES rock-solid song catalog”, ‘In the Dark’ tracks are further likened to Mick Jones’ Clash, the Ramones, and Material Issue. The core of the group has remained untouched, with drummer Steve Hennessy and bassist Brian Driscoll providing the swaggering rhythmic throb and Pat Hennessy delivering his strong, distinct vocals and guitar work. With three other releases on Truckstop/Atavistic Records from Chicago, as well as numerous singles, THE TIGERLILIES have truly endured and begun anew with the recent ‘In the Dark’ which introduces new guitarist Brendan Bogosian… This band is “not only poised and ready, but active and determined” as stated by influential music blog THRWART. THE TIGERLILIES continue to hammer out shows as a vital live act and continue to write new songs for the next release.
