Vancouver’s Pride Tiger is four guys linked by a record collection, a real record collection, as in vinyl, and a shared love of music from the seventies.

On their self-titled debut for EMI Music Canada, produced, engineered and mixed by Matt Hyde (Slayer, Monster Magnet, Fu Manchu), they modernize the glorious 70’s rock style, resulting in 13 songs that are powerful, sweaty, hooky, suitably head-banging and one big party. No need to dress up or wash your hair. Songs like “Let Em Go,” Long Way Down,” “What It Is,” “Fill Me In” and “Forget Everything” are all that’s needed.

In 2005, Pride Tiger started playing parties, particularly at Bloodstone Press, the screen-printing company that they ran. Soon, they added local shows, which drew line-ups outside. A year ago, as they disentangled themselves from their other bands, they cut a nine-song, self-produced CD (yes, CD, not vinyl LP) called Wood, Dhak, Froese, Payette, that included the gem “White Witch Woman Blues.”

As word spread of Pride Tiger and industry interest was raised, they continued to write songs in their beloved seventies vein and also took a detour to NXNE in June to showcase. By the summer, the band signed with EMI Music Canada and did a day’s worth of phone calls with producers to source out the best fit for their major label debut. Now that the album, The Lucky Ones, is finished, Pride Tiger is loading into a van, touring across Canada and into the U.S. They’ve lived in a “crazy old dirty punk house” together, then in an L.A. suite for two months, so 18 months in a van shouldn’t be a problem.
