LAS VEGAS RETRO POP PUNK BAND, PET TIGERS, SIGN WITH SQUIDHAT RECORDS. NEW ALBUM SCHEDULED FOR SPRING 2013 RELEASE
Las Vegas, NV, January 7, 2013 – SquidHat Records is proud to announce the signing of Pet Tigers, a popular Las Vegas garage pop trio. The Pet Tigers will begin recording their debut album in February tobe released by SquidHat Records later this year. A CD Release show is being planned at the world-famous Double Down Saloon in Las Vegas.’
â€œPet Tigers have a fun, unique and edgy sound that is catchy, irreverent and accomplished entirely without guitars.â€ said SquidHat Records President and founder, Allan Carter. â€œThey write incredibly infectious modern pop punk with a retro vibe and are a great fit for the label.â€
Formed in 2009, Pet Tigers, made up of Ryan Arcoraci (bass/ vocals), Liz Ofte (Keyboards/vocals) and Jesse Moran (drums) create catchy, upbeat feel good music with one foot firmly in the glorious past.
Their sound is a mash-up of three chord pop punk, surf rock, electronic music, new wave, post punk, low-fi, and garage â€“ a sound their fans call â€œTiger Rockâ€ – , with no shortage of nods to their influences. From Blondie, the Ramones, New Order, and No Doubt to the Beach Boys, Joy Division, Cyndi Lauper & Erasure, all without losing their unmistakable, original sound.
Pet Tigers don’t write music “by the book.” Ryanâ€™s punk past combined with Jesseâ€™s solid backbeat and Lizâ€™s 80â€™s synth keyboards and incredibly distinctive vocal style bring many diverse elements to their music. Without a guitar in sight they create a modern sound with a retro feel, highlighted by Lizâ€™s now legendary keytar, which makes them an instant stand out.
Pet Tigers first full length album will be released in the spring of 2013, by SquidHat Records, with extensive tour support to follow. Check the single, â€œYeahâ€, at: www.pettigersband.com
