Good Tiger (The Safety Fire, Tesseract, Architects) Crowdfund Album
The huge response to the campaign shows the appetite to hear the music from Good Tiger, a quintet of talented and experienced musicians who gravitated to one another following well known stints in established metal bands.
Just last year Derya 'Dez' Nagle (The Safety Fire) and Joaquin 'Jo' Ardiles (The Safety Fire) linked up with Dez vocalist Elliot Coleman (Tesseract), drummer Alex Rüdinger, and bassist Morgan Sinclair (Architects) to create Good Tiger, a band with a lot to say on debut record 'A Head Full of Moonlight.'
Speaking to Eric Mackinnon of the New Rock Times, guitarist Derya says he formed Good Tiger when his former band came to a halt and he needed an outlet.
"We quickly realised we weren't done with music, so we reached out to people who they felt would be good at the whole, making music thing," he says.
"They had toured with Alex 'The' Rudinger, and Elliot 'El' Coleman before, and knew they were like minded enough to form a gang. They asked me to join in with the fun because I'm pretty good at painting Warhammer. I once came fourth in the 'youngbloods' category at a pretty serious painting competition, in addition to winning countless local painting events. I truly am good at painting Warhammer."
"I also play bass, guitar, and Magic The Gathering. I also already owned a leather jacket, so there was no need for additional band expenses." He jokes.
On the overwhelming response to the band's Crowdfunding campaign Derya continues: "It was very exciting for us as a band to see that number grow as quickly as it did.
"We reached more than double our target prior to releasing any music though, that was a little worrying. What if the people who pre-ordered didn't like the music, huh?
"Guys? Did you think about that? No refunds." Read more here.
