In 1990 Welsh hard rock heroes TIGERTAILZ unleashed an album that would raise the standard for independent metal albums of the era. "Bezerk", released on the U.K.'s Music for Nations imprint, featured such anthems as "Noize Level Critical", "Sick Sex" and the band's calling card, "Love Bomb Baby", all of which helped fuel the album to over a quarter of a million worldwide sales as well as MTV attention, Gallup-charting (U.K.) singles and two Top 3 home videos. "That was one hell of a time", reflects guitarist, Jay Pepper. "It seemed like just about everything was going our way — the only market that eluded us, oddly enough, was America!"
Fifteen years later, Sanctuary Music has finally made that realization a reality with the North American release of not only "Bezerk" but that album's followup, "Banzai" (a Japanese only compilation released through Sony Music in 1991) on October 11 at a special sale price of $10.99 each. Frontman Kim Hooker says, "Finally our American fans will be able to walk into a record store and be able to pick up our albums and not have to wait for them to arrive from an import shop someplace. I'm thinking of flying over there just so I can do that myself!"
Recently featured in Classic Rock magazine as part of their "Welcome Back ..." series via an interview with bassist, Pepsi Tate, TIGERTAILZ have also completed work on the long-awaited "Bezerk 2.0" and are looking to do shows Stateside in mid-2006.
