Tygers of Pan Tang Discuss Self-Titled Album

Tygers of Pan Tang have been releasing albums for nearly 40 years. How does a band make it 40 years? Well, I guess they do it for the love, or they’re broke, either way, Robb Weir has managed to present one incarnation after another as Tygers of Pan Tang. He is the driving force, the band founder, and even though he has brought in various members and called them Tygers of Pan Tang, the band has remained truly a product of that moniker.

Yes, 40 years later and Tygers of Pan Tang are still Tygers of Pan Tang, regardless of the lineup. The lineup, in this case, is solid, though. Three of the members have been with the band for over a decade and the remaining two don’t seem to be going anywhere soon. Thus we have the band’s recent creative output, a self-titled album. Why do bands make self-titled albums so late in their career? I guess they do it to show they still have what it takes to put out a good album and call it by a legendary name, in this case, Tygers of Pan Tang.

Tygers of Pan Tang is a legend even though they’ve never been a standout act like Iron Maiden. Without the help of Metallica and Megadeth, many of the second wave of British metal bands, NWOBHM if you will, haven’t gotten much exposure. Still, even without the name recognition of Diamond Head or Iron Maiden, Tygers are able to release a video to over 100,000 raving fans. They’re doing something right. Read on to learn more about Mr. Weir’s latest music under the Tygers of Pan Tang name.
