TIGERS JAW has released the official music video for “June,” which is featured on the band’s celebrated new LP spin, out now on Black Cement Records. The Ben Carey directed video is streaming below!
Recorded with producer and longtime collaborator Will Yip at Studio 4 in Conshohocken, PA, spin arrived to critical acclaim last month with The Fader declaring, “…the duo sounds fresh, honest, and self-aware.” NPR’s All Songs Considered applauded TIGERS JAW’s new material declaring the duo, “…thoughtful songwriters mining the sorrows of pop, particularly the thematic and sonic tumult of Fleetwood Mac,” while Pitchfork attested, “…Tigers Jaw remain above the fray but true to their roots.” Stereogum praised TIGERS JAW for, “…balancing the damp garage-rock of Pity Sex with the big, catchy sensibilities of early Paramore,” and UPROXX hailed spin as, “…an album that sounds bigger and more lush than anything the band had done previously.” spin is available at all DSPs with limited edition vinyl available at www.tigersjaw.com.
Comprised of Ben Walsh and Brianna Collins, TIGERS JAW has gripped listeners and press across the globe with their candid compositions and alluring harmonies. spin (stylized all lowercase) sees Walsh and Collins trading off lead vocals which glow with sincerity on this collection of incredibly understated indie-pop classics. Tracks such as “Guardian,” “June,” and “Escape Plan” shine on spin, which follows TIGERS JAW’s 2014 critically adored LP, Charmer. “…The sound of a band bravely moving forward,” declared Pitchfork while Stereogum applauded Walsh and Collins’, “…soul-baring lyrical honesty,” adding, “TIGERS JAW are a revelation…” Profoundly personal and vibrantly textured, spin exhibits Walsh and Collins’ remarkable ability to capture the sentiments and complexities of a moment through melody and introspection.
TIGERS JAW is currently traversing the U.S. on a headline tour in support of spin with special guests Saintseneca and Smidley. Dates continue through June 24th where the tour wraps up with a performance at Royale in Boston, MA. For tickets and more information visit, tigersjaw.com.

Cruel one convinced you in his stillness
in a dream, safe and harmless.
Unknown to you,
wolf in sheep’s clothing.
Hand over mouth
his secrets you’re holding.
I can see you and the ache you’re hiding,
I’m here you know I’ll always remind you.
Lonely one, I always knew.
The future tells a hazel view.
Gemstone, like polish and acetone.
For you are my sister sewn.
I know you like the drive home.
Breathe deep, the knower’s perspective
you’ll see how the rest of this is undeniable.
Hold out for June, it brings new season.
Vision is clear, your mind revealing.
Pressing the flower in the page.
Forever kept, a memory made.
Now you’re so sure, you’re always leading.
All the same words now bring new meaning.
I can hear you and I know you’re singing,
“I’m here you know I’ll always remind you.”
Four leaf luck
Skilled hands built you up.
