Bio

Hobart based Ride the Tiger will release its second studio EP, Party Starter, this July. The EP is to be distributed independently through BandCamp and the best part is it’s totally free. Described by Tiger front-man Lucas Walker as “A satisfying taste of a 3 year D.I.Y odyssey,” the Party Starter EP was designed to warm the ears of listeners prior to the release of a full length effort later in the year.

In their first collection of new material since 2009’s Ambush, the band covers a heck of a lot of ground in just six songs. The anguished Fence and Wall, told from an asylum-seeker’s perspective, laments “we did nothing wrong but the department took us back”. Birdman features a guest appearance from Atom Simpson, front-man of underground pub-punk heroes A Death in the Family, while title track Party Starter is a break-neck, booze soaked caper whose protagonist also lends his image to the EP’s artwork.

Party Starter was produced by Ride the Tiger’s own Nic White and Lincoln Le Fevre, the pair having collaborated on recent work from Luca Brasi and Jamie Hay. Ride the Tiger are - Jason Mizzen, drums; Linc le Fevre, guitar and vocal; Lucas Walker, guitar and main vocal; Nic White, bass and vocal. A limited run of live shows will be announced soon.
