Boston's latest and greatest Power Rock Trio, Tab the Band, hit the stage in their hometown of Boston at TT the Bears and came down to warm up NYC at Pianos. Tony, Adrian and Ben will released debut full length album Pulling Out Just Enough to Win on North Street Records. The boys from Boston spent their summer and fall warming stages in dates up and down both coasts. What next? They hopped a plane across the pond to the UK and playing shows including festival slots at the Hyde Park Calling Festival and opening gigs for Dinosaur Jr and Rose Hill Drive.
Their debut LP features some fantastic first singles and dirty deep cuts. "Secretary's Day" and "CYT", are scruffy little pop ditties reminiscent of the days Keith & Mick reigned supreme and, then there is "The House of El Ron" and "Antitrust", which features some fierce guitar licks courtesy of Tony and some booming basslines/vocals from Adrian. The two Perry Brothers have inherited their father's (Joe Perry) genius guitar genes, but the similarities end there. TAB the Band have proven with this debut LP that they can stand alone and will do so for many years to come.
Though TAB the band has only existed since January 2007, it has accomplished a lot in its short career. The Boston band has earned respect as an energetic and powerful live act. With 2 EPs and a full length record, the band, Tony Perry-guitar, Adrian Perry-vocals, bass, and Ben Tileston-drums, has established a back to basics rock sound that has been missing from the American musical landscape. On their debut LP, 'Pulling Out Just Enough to Win' you can hear the promise of a rock band that understands its history but also is built for any time period, regardless of trend, fad or passing fancy. TAB the Band's first record is out, and the band is currently recording its second album which will be ready for release in fall 08.
