Psychobilly band Tiger Army, based in Berkley, California, shared their first new music in over eight years. Listen to "Prisoner of the Night" and check out the lyrics above.
The track will be on the band's upcoming record, V •••, which does not currently have a release date. In a press release, frontman Nick 13 talked about the elements of the song:
Our sound has always been about a mix of old and new. But this song, like others on the new record, draws from the early ‘60s. It was a transitional period after the end of rock 'n' roll's first wave, but prior to the British invasion. There was a lot of sonic experimentation as people tried to figure out 'what's next'? Radio singles of that era also went on to influence early NYC punk, so 'Prisoner' plays with that as well.
"Prisoner of the Night" is a spirited tune that features shaky vocals sung over funky guitar riffs, lively drums, and ascending piano arpeggios. The abrupt, whistle-like synthesizer in the bridge takes things to the next level.
The band have been playing the song live, during their current tour with Dropkick Murphys. For Tiger Army's latest music, news, and tour dates, check out their Zumic artist page.
