TIGERTAILZ announce new bass player BERTY BURTON

Berty says: 'Couldn't be happier to have been asked, hell, even considered, to join such a great band!  Looking forward to sharing a stage with my new band-mates, and playing for all the Tailz fans! I know I have some big shoes to fill, but i'll try and do you all proud. The new line up sounds absolutely monstrous!
See you in July Maniacz!!'

Quote from Jay ''As soon as we rehearsed with Berty we immediately knew he was the right guy for the job, he's such a solid player, great to work with, and ticks all the boxes of exactly what we need in Tigertailz going forward. He's played with New Generation Superstars and Drugdealer Cheerleader in Europe/UK, so we knew where his high standard of playing was at.
So at last we now have a fully functioning stable, UK based band, and cannot wait for the July shows to show how fantastic it's all sounding right now!
See you there Maniacz!!''

A few weeks ago the band announced previous bassist Rob Wylde (Teenage Casket Company) was to switch roles into the new vocalist.

Release Year: 

TIGERTAILZ release their 8th studio album, ‘Lost Reelz’ on FnA Records

Tigertailz have released a new project of old demos and unreleased recordings entitled ‘Lost Reelz’ via FnA Records.  The 18 track album has no shortage of never-before-heard recordings that pack a punch and will titillate any Tigertailz fan.  Despite the fact that these unreleased recordings are demos, the sound quality is impeccable.
Tigertailz hail from Cardiff Wales in the UK and may already have the distinction of being the only UK band to share in some of the success of hairspray heavies like Mötley Crüe, L.A Guns, WASP, and Poison. They achieved it by being unique, by not following others and by doing it their way. Extremity in everything - in music, in image, in art, in life...
Tigertailz got their start with its first release in 1987 entitled ‘Young & Crazy’ which eventually channeled into the bands highly successful sophomore effort ‘Bezerk’.  ‘Bezerk’ saw the band releasing multiple singles and heading out to play major markets and festivals.  It’s at about this point, in 1994, that a lot of the songs from ‘Lost Reelz’ were demoed.   Some of the songs morphed into other songs , while others were either lost or put away for a later day. 
On ‘Lost Reelz’, the listener hears a new side of Tigertailz as Pepsi was being heavily influenced by the Trent Reznor/Nine Inch Nails sound.  This is most evident on songs like: “Long Live The New Flesh”, “Twisted”,  and “Falling Down”.  The song “Hold Your Horses” was a track recorded for Tigertailz Thrill Pistol album, but was later pulled as it didn’t fit the mold.  Some of the tracks like “Get Real”, “Daggerz”, and “In For The Kill” were recorded in 2005 when the band reformed.   Additionally, the album leads off with a mesmerizing rendition of the Welsh National Anthem performed by Jay Pepper.  Lastly, a brand new 2014 track entitled “FNA” was written and recorded specifically for the ‘Lost Reelz’ project .  “FNA” harkens back capturing the 80’s/90’s vibe that Tigertailz is known for.
Don’t let the ‘new sound’ of the tunes on ‘Lost Reelz’ scare you off; this is a pure Tigertailz album through and through; you hear a band that is growing and changing while maintaining their uniqueness.  Come share in the memories of Pepsi Tate and dig into his diversity alongside original member/guitarist Jay Pepper.
FnA Records is the home to many of the 80’s favorite hard rock bands like:  Roxy Blue, Tora Tora, Dirty Looks, Roxx Gang, Tigertailz, Rock City Angels, Gypsy Rose, D’molls, The Godz, Wanted, Alleycat Scratch, Witch, Ruthless, and many others.
