Tigercub release Third LP “The Perfume Of Decay” via Stone Gossard Co-Founded Loosegroove Records

Brighton, UK-based rock outfit Tigercub have just released their third LP, ‘The Perfume Of Decay’ – their first full-length release under the Loosegroove Records banner, a label co-founded by Pearl Jam guitarist Stone Gossard, a long-time champion of the band.

“The Perfume of Decay” sees frontman Jamie Hall exploring a moody, melancholic sound that’s as filmic as any Hollywood soundtrack. It’s an album about counterpoint and opposites, brimming with songs that balance overdriven guitars with whispered vocals, tight grooves with shoegazing bursts of noise, sonic experimentation with sharp songwriting. For a band that’s renowned for delivering drama and dynamism, “The Perfume of Decay” looks set to become Tigercub’s strongest release to date.

As harbingers of the LP, the band dropped three new singles – the dynamically powerful ‘Swoon’, the hook-heavy, fuzz-laden ‘Play My Favourite Song’ and the stomping title track ‘The Perfume Of Decay’ which all went on to earn widespread critical acclaim and radio play on the BBC Radio 1 Rock Show, Kerrang! Radio (playlist) and Radio X (playlist) as well as press coverage from Upset, DIY, Dork, Classic Rock, Kerrang!, Rock Sound, The Line Of Best Fit, Louder and many more.

To celebrate the release of the album, the band also shared the single “Show Me My Maker”; a furious, riff-heavy track that is a perfect accompaniment to tie in with the release of the album. Commenting on the latest single drop Gossard said:

“Show Me My Maker speaks for itself. This song has classic guts. The opening cobra strikes of a guitar riff… it’s seriously in the running for ‘mother of all riffs’ to the nihilistic exultation of the chorus refrain. I love it. Thank you Tigercub.”

“The Perfume of Decay” was recorded on the back of an international tour that took Tigercub halfway around the world in support of their previous album, “As Blue Indigo.”

This summer, the band also celebrated their signing to Loosegroove Records with landmark sets at the UK’s annual Reading and Leeds festivals, as well as sharing the bill with Pearl Jam for their epic two-night stand at London’s BST Hyde Park 2022.

Tigercub are also currently nearing the end of a major US headline tour in support of their new album. The dates precede the band’s headline tour of the UK in October. The full run of venues is listed below with tickets available HERE.
