TYGERS OF PAN TANG Completes Charity Song For Local Football Club

NWOBHM legends TYGERS OF PAN TANG recently accepted a request from their hometown football (soccer) club, Whitley Bay FC, to re-record the song "Live For The Day" as a way to celebrate the team reaching the VA Vase Cup Final at Wembley Stadium.

Commented the band: "Timescales were very tight for the project with the idea only being proposed mid-April but with the sponsorship of the [local newspaper] Newcastle Chronicle who have facilitated the project, the song was completed in the studio late Sunday night (May 3). There were some challenges involved including flying [singer] Jack [Jacopo Meille] into the U.K. from Italy to learn the song arrangement and lay down the vocals in the studio all in two days."

"Live for The Bay" is a reworked version of "Live For The Day" from TYGERS OF PAN TANG's latest album, "Animal Instinct". It is now available from the band's webshop.

Commented guitarist Robb Weir: "We have always promoted Whitley Bay as our home town and have been proud to do so, this is a fantastic place and a great chance for the entire community to all come together at Wembley and support the team to victory."

TYGERS' most recent album, "Animal Instinct", was released last year.

According to a press release, "Animal Instinct", sees the band "go back to their early roots, playing hard-edged rock in the manner of 'Wildcat' and 'Spellbound'."
