Commented TYGERS OF PAN TANG founding member and guitarist, Robb Weir, "I am very proud of the band's history as well as the current lineup. We should never forget the TYGERS history and hope this shows we will always recognise the early days of the band. There are a lot of bands that want to modernise their sound or image and forget what made them great in the beginning… I am not one of them".
"We are very pleased with the end result, in particular with the recorded sound achieved, it really does capture the early '80s NWOBHM spirit and feel we were looking for. To achieve that raw, almost 'live' vibe to the sound, we even replicated the microphone positioning that was used on the original recording" he adds.
