Rookie Shares New Tigers Jaw Video for "Hum", New Album "Charmer" Out 6.3.14 via Run For Cover Records, Summer Tour Dates Announced

Still from "Hum" Video, Directed and Filmed by Alex Henery

In advance of the release of their third studio full-length Charmer, Scranton, Pennsylvania indie-rock band Tigers Jaw shared a new video today for the track "Hum" via Rookie Magazine.  Due out on Run For Cover Records on June 3, 2014, Charmerfirmly establishes Tigers Jaw as a band to watch in the coming months, especially as they prepare for several weeks of touring including a run with Pity Sex and a full US tour with Touché Amoré and Dads (all tour dates below).

On their third studio full-length, Charmer, Tigers Jaw went into the legendary Studio 4 in Conshohocken, PA with Will Yip (Title Fight, Circa Survive, La Dispute) to record 11 new tracks and re-record the song "Distress Signal" from Run For Cover's 2011 Mixed Signalscompilation.  Two of the tracks on Charmer appeared in late 2013 on the Hum/Cool 7" on Run For Cover Records. Charmer is available for pre-order today at Run For Cover Records, in Germany at FinestVinyl, and in Japan at Ice Grills Records.

Known for their undeniably down-to-earth charm, Tigers Jaw somehow manages to be part Fleetwood Mac, part Saves the Day, working the odd-sounding combination to their full advantage.  With their boy-girl harmonies, chunky guitars and shimmering organs, it's tough not to immediately feel the impact of their music and even more difficult to suppress the urge to sing along.
