THE YEAR OF THE TIGERS!

After a long Covid-enforced lay-off, SMALLTOWN TIGERS are back with a new video.

These Italian lasses made a splash with their debut mini-album Five Things, released in May 2020 in the first bloom of lockdown, but were forced to postpone, then cancel, their UK dates.

Released in celebration of the Chinese Year of the Tiger, which begins today, the new video is for the track ‘Girl Can Help It’, which they recorded for the Defiled! New Bomb Turks tribute on Heavy Medication Records which was released last year.

As previously announced, the Rimini trio will be opening for The Damned on their reunion tour from 28 Oct to 5 November.

They’ll also be playing the Pump It Up! Powerpop Weekender on 3 July alongside Baby Shakes, Duncan Reid & The Big Heads and more. More dates are expected to be added.

Defiled! A Heavy Medication Tribute To New Bomb Turks is available here.

TIGERS ON THE PROWL!

Already being talked up on the Euro garage-punk scene, Italy’s SMALLTOWN TIGERS are all set to drop their debut single next month, and will be playing a bunch of UK dates to support it.

Hailing from the northern seaside city of Rimini, the trio came into existence a year ago, earning their stripes playing squat clubs and beach parties, before scooping the support slot for NYC powerpop aces BABY SHAKES on their jaunt around Italy this spring.

Now signed to Area Pirata Records, the band are due to release their debut single ‘Just Friends’ on 27 September, followed by a mini-album in the New Year. Both were produced by punk-blues guru Stiv Cantarelli (J.D. Hangover, The A.C.C.) and mastered by legendary Detroit producer Jim Diamond (The Sonics, White Stripes).

‘Just Friends’ is available to pre-order now via Bandcamp.

Smalltown Tigers head to the UK in early October for a handful of dates, including an appearance at Loud Women‘s 4th Birthday Party at London’s iconic Hope & Anchor. Full dates are…

Thurs 10 Oct – The Railway Hotel, Southend-on-Sea
Fri 11 Oct – The Shacklewell Arms, London (Garageland Club)
