Twin Tigers To Hit The Road With Interpol

Athens, Georgia's Twin Tigers will be joining Interpol on the road for a month of touring that will begin July 23rd in Massachusetts. Dreamy pop tones blended with throbbing noise textures have become Twin Tigers' signature sound. Their debut album, "Gray Waves," was released via Old Flame Records in March 2010. The critically acclaimed album helped thrust the band into the indie spotlight, allowing them to perform with some of the best known bands in their genre including Deerhunter, The Hold Steady, Woods, Les Savy Fav, and A Place To Bury Strangers.

Their debut EP, "Curious Faces / Violet Future," was released in 2008 to critical acclaim, and followed by a digital EP, "Automatic," in late 2009. Following the completion of Gray Waves, Twin Tigers joined Minus the Bear and The Antlers on tour in the fall of 2009, and performed at the WOXY showcase at SXSW 2010.

The four piece band from Athens, Georgia, was formed by Matthew Rain (guitars/vocals) and Aimee Morris (bass) when the two were co-workers at Michael Stipe's Grit restaurant. Through constant touring with bands including Dead Confederate, Jay Reatard, Black Lips, Dungen, and Snowden, Twin Tigers built a solid fan base throughout the southeast. The band rounded out its current lineup with Forrest Hall (guitars) in 2009.
