News on Nick 13's Solo Project! :: by EVB on Oct 15. 2009
In a new blog post on myspace Nick 13 announced:

"Hello everyone!  I've been quiet here lately but busy preparing to launch the country solo project and also preparing for Tiger Army's only shows of the year, Octoberflame 2009!

For those of you who were unable to tune in to my radio appearance on Loveline, I announced that the country solo project will make its live debut in a guest appearance at Octoberflame, a few new songs will be played live for the first time anywhere!

Speaking of live appearances, Nick 13 (the solo project) will perform at the Stagecoach festival next April on the Palamino stage with such legends as Merle Haggard and Ray Price!  I?m very excited about this!  We will have a release next year and we will tour in support of it!

WHAT THIS MEANS FOR TIGER ARMY ? Tiger Army is NOT breaking up, but much of 2010 will be devoted to the recording and touring for n13 solo, so DON?T miss Octoberflame, IT WILL BE YOUR LAST CHANCE to see TA for quite some time!  No touring is planned for Tiger Army for 2010.  If you?ve been thinking about traveling to Octoberflame, do it!

We?ve slaved away in the practice room so that we can play a different set every night!  For example, you will hear TWELVE different songs on Saturday night than on Friday night, including songs we haven?t played live in years or have NEVER played!

Hope to see you there, I?m excited about Tiger Army playing, I?m excited about the new project playing, good things are on the way!

OCtoberflame 2009 Details! :: by EVB on June 2. 2009
Tiger Army is proud to announce the second annual Octoberflame festival! Like 2008, the shows will take place at the end of October, including Halloween night, but unlike 2008 the shows take place in Orange County AND Los Angeles! Tiger Army will be supported by top acts handpicked by Tiger Army's Nick 13, including .45 Grave, Milwaukee Wildmen and more, with new guests being announced right up until October!

As most of 2009 has been earmarked for the writing and recording of a Nick 13 solo album that focuses on country/roots/rockabilly, these shows are the ONLY planned Tiger Army shows for the entire year!

Nick 13 says "In ancient times this point on the calendar marked the end of the harvest, a time of celebration of the past and contemplation of the future. That's what Octoberflame is about, it's also a recognition of all those people who've supported the music that we've dedicated our lives to."

Tickets go onsale to the general public on Friday, June 5th at Ticketmaster.com at 10am! Tickets will be available at this time at the venue box offices, a good way to save on ticketing fees.

Keep an eye out for a presale password sent via Tiger Army's myspace bulletin -(subscribe at www.myspace.com/tigerarmy)- there will be a special internet presale that begins THIS Wednesday, June 3rd, at 10am Pacific and ends at 10pm! Check out the tourdates page for links to the ticket sales!.

Tiger Army will be back, but we don't know when, so don't miss these very special shows!

Geoff Kresge back in Tiger Army! :: by EVB on Jan 14. 2008
Just announced on the official site: Geoff Kresge has returned as the stand-up bassist for Tiger Army - this is a name that will no doubt be familiar to Tiger Army fans, Kresge performed all live shows with the band from 1999 to mid-2004, as well as performing on the band's second and third albums. Jeff Roffredo has left the band as a friend, to pursue other interests. Kresge says, "I don't think people understand what a difficult decision it was for me to make when I left the band in late 2004, or that it may or may not have been for the reasons that the fans have heard or read about. Being given the opportunity to rejoin the band is an exciting prospect!" Nick 13, Geoff Kresge and James Meza hit the road this week in the USA, check out Tourdates page for ticket links and all other info.
