TYGERS OF PAN TANG: 'The Spellbound Sessions' Details Revealed

February 19 will see NWOBHM (New Wave Of British Heavy Metal) legends TYGERS OF PAN TANG release a special six-track CD EP, "The Spellbound Sessions", to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their iconic 1981 LP, "Spellbound".

Following on from last year's celebration of the "Wildcat" album and after receiving fantastic feedback from the fans, TYGERS OF PAN TANG decided to continue with this concept of celebrating the past.

Commented guitarist Robb Weir: "I am very proud of the band's history as well as the current lineup in the band.

"This EP, as did 'The Wildcat Sessions', gives an opportunity to celebrate and record some of my favorite songs and to remember the past through the current lineup.

"We should never forget the TYGERS history and I hope this shows the band will always recognize the early days of the band.

"'Spellbound' was a new era for the TYGERS in 1981 and after the success of 'Wildcat', we had to follow on with something special, which I think we did.

"There are a lot of bands that want to modernize their sound or image and forget what made them great in the beginning; I am not one of them."

"The Spellbound Sessions" is limited to 1,000 copies and will be made available to the Tyger Force fan club members from February 10. The CD will be available for general sale from the TYGERS web site shop from February 19.

"The Spellbound Sessions" track listing:

01. Gangland
02. Take It
02. Hellbound
02. Mirror
02. Tyger Bay
02. Don't Stop By

All songs have been re-recorded and remixed by TYGERS OF PAN TANG.

The bands full live set during 2011 will include all songs from "The Spellbound Sessions".
