TYGERS OF PAN TANG: New Album 'Will Take You Back To The Glory Days Of British Hard Rock'

NWOBHM legends TYGERS OF PAN TANG have issued the following update:

"2008 will prove to be an historic year for the TYGERS with a heavy touring schedule and new product available. The new album, 'Animal Instinct', is almost complete and mixing time has been booked with Ben Matthews for February 1-7. This will give plenty of time to receive the pressings and get them delivered to you by mid-April 2008. I know you're all keen to hear the new material and hopefully the 'Back & Beyond' EP will have whet your appetite for more.

"The album consists of 11 new tracks inc the two from the EP and will take you back 25 years to the glory days of British hard rock. The band are very excited with the results and we know you will just love the songs. We know there will be some sceptics out there, but just check it out first, before comment, we want you back onboard with the TYGERS and hopefully this product will do just that.

"We will be releasing 250 limited-editon collectors packages which will be available to pre-order from the website www.tygersofpantang.com as from Saturday, January 12. The package will consist of the CD signed and individualy numbered, you will also receive a numbered VIP pass which will give you an opportunity to be our guest for a day at a show of your choice (subject to availability) and win other prizes throughout the year. We plan to make two draws per month, one for the guest pass and the second for a consolation prize. The draw results will be advertised on the website and myspace site each month. There will be other small items also included such as badges, Tour flyers etc. This really will become a collector's item due to its very limited run.

Story continues after advertisement

"As from April the album will be available on general sale via the website, we are looking at the distribution of the CD at the moment and will let you know as soon as anything is confirmed. If you are planning to come and see the TYGERS live, the CD will also be available from the merchandise stand."

TYGERS OF PAN TANG's current lineup is:

Robb Weir - Guitar
Dean Robertson - Guitar
Jacopo Meille - Vocals
