First making a splash with their 1987 debut, the snotty, street-smart 'Young And Crazy', the Tigertailz name made rock headlines with their follow-up 'Bezerk', an album that delivered a series of popular singles, including infectious bubblegum classic 'Love Bomb Baby', a song that seems destined to remain their calling card. As sales went through the roof, 'Bezerk' kept Tigertailz on the road for what seemed like an eternity. Their long-awaited follow-up, 'Wazbones', was however sunk by endless record company problems. That, and the onset of grunge, eventually sent the band into hiatus... In 2005, with the music scene beginning to look something like fun again, the core members of Tigertailz reunited. As record companies hurried to re-release their older material, the band prepared their comeback album 'Bezerk 2.0'. They were back, playing massive festivals like Sweden Rock, Gods of Metal, Lorca Rock Festival and Kobetansonik, supporting the likes of Kiss, Crüe, Whitesnake and Velvet Revolver. Even better was to come, on the back of the fantastic 'Thrill Pistol', the heaviest album the band have made, and an indicator of their current direction - British metal, twisted up with street punk and savagely singable, glamtastic melodies. Not only that, but its release finally enabled them to release the fabled 'Wazbones' as a second, bonus CD – free with every copy of 'Thrill Pistol'. Regrettably, 2007 was to be remembered for the passing of bassist and co-founder Pepsi Tate, a terrible blow that almost forced the band to quit. After much soul-searching, it was decided to bite back, continuing to keep alive the great tradition that Tate had been such a powerful exponent of. In 2010, the band prepared for the next phase in its rollercoaster story - the 20-year celebration of 'Bezerk', a live album, and two festival headline slots (including the UK's Hard Rock Hell). With a rejuvenated and enthralling new line-up hitting the news in 2013, the road rolls on for a hungry, revitalised Tigertailz. From a band that has survived challenges so bizarre that most wouldn't even believe it, expect blow-your-mind live performances, and in 'Knives' some new generation Tigertailz music to rally the clans. In fact, a competition to win a signed copy of the new EP attracted over 10,000 'hits' in less than three hours! It's a resurgence to make fans young and old proud of this classic Welsh metal band.

We've wanted to do a free show for a long time now, but for one reason or another it's just never come off. But thanks to Mike and the people at The Globe in Cardiff we can now finally do it.. It's our chance to give something back and say thanks to all the Tailz Maniacs for sticking with us.. So really looking forward to it.. It will also enable us to raise more money for Pepsi's Amser Justin Time charity by running a collection on the night. So it really should make for a great fun night.... Can't wait!"
