Brighton power-trio Tigercub return today with the thundering “I.W.G.F.U.”, the band’s first new material since their second album “As Blue As Indigo” landed at the start of summer. Produced by the band’s front man Jamie Stephen Hall and mixed by Tom Dalgety (Pixies, Ghost, Royal Blood), the latest cut from Tigercub further establishes Hall’s talent for pairing woozy melody to infectious, contorting riff-work. Hooky and immediate, “I.W.G.F.U.” is another statement from a band clearly on an ascent.
The band’s Jamie Hall had the following to say about the single:
“I wanted a party song to kick off our first headline tour in four years. I.W.G.F.U is that song, it’s a thrill ride, start to finish, it journeys through the dynamic spectrum at breakneck speed and I think lands harder than anything we’ve ever done.
It’s about drinking, and that moment when despite my best efforts to abstain, my impulse always takes over and I say: “fuck it” let’s go big.”

Tigercub’s second album, “As Blue As Indigo”, landed in June to rave reviews from rock and alt press internationally. The record, that Upset calls one to “cement them at the top of the food chain” and has included in their albums of the year, was written and produced by the band’s own Jamie Stephen Hall, engineered and co-produced by Adrian Bushby (Foo Fighters, Muse) and subsequently mixed by Tom Dalgety (Pixies, Ghost, Royal Blood). Written over two years, “As Blue As Indigo” champions introspection drawing on the subjectivity of colour.
Available on LP, CD and digital formats, you can purchase the record HERE
