For the devoted who tattoo the lyrics and "TigerBat" logo on their bodies, Tiger Army is more than a band – it's a way of life. Nick 13's songwriting channels the frustration, loneliness and despair into a triumph of perseverance, buzzing with power and dark romance. The loyalty of the band's following is evident on their Facebook page and website, where hundreds of photos of Tiger Army related tattoos can be found.

The worldwide psychobilly scene owes an enormous debt to the Southern California trio, whose four albums and relentless touring have infused the genre (a blend of punk and rockabilly with dark elements) with the interest of countless new listeners, particularly in North America where it was virtually unknown before the band's first release.

Tiger Army embraces its psychobilly roots but transcends the genre with nuanced introspection and a staunch stance against novelty. They follow the example laid down by The Beatles who always maintained a connection to their first musical love, the rockabilly of artists like Buddy Holly and Carl Perkins, even while expanding and redefining it – in some cases beyond recognition.

Tiger Army remains Nick 13's vision and mission. At a time when much of contemporary rock music has been reduced to meaningless theater performed by pretenders, Tiger Army is an antidote, bracing in their authenticity.

Tiger Army Never Die!
