Hot New Band: Good Tiger
Transatlantic tech-heads Good Tiger are humbly pushing metal forward
When one band ends, it’s often the catalyst for another to begin, and well-liked Brit tech-metal crew The Safety Fire were no exception.
From their ashes comes Good Tiger - an ambitious outfit that fuses metal, prog riffs and hardcore energy. Accomplished frontman Elliot Coleman, whose CV includes a spell in Tesseract, is at the helm.
“I toured with The Safety Fire guys while I was still in Tesseract, and said at the time that I’d be down for doing something fun on the side,” he says, “but I didn’t think they’d be looking at my name [for a new project].”
Since Good Tiger’s inception back in August, they’ve released a single, Snake Oil, and their crowd-funded debut album A Head Full Of Midnight (which reached double its target) has just been unleashed. As well as Snake Oil’s abrasive, sometimes discordant riffs and urgent vocal lines, the video is also a talking point; an arcade-style cartoon that sees the band reimagined as game avatars.
