Hailing from the ever blooming Athens, GA scene, Twin Tigers are ready to unleash their dynamic sound unto the universe. Along with
other elements of the past five decades of rock music, Twin Tigers blend noise textures with pop structure and
shoegaze overtones shaping a sound that's all new.

Formed by co-workers at the Michael
Stipe-owned Grit restaurant, guitarist/vocalist Matthew
Rain and bassist Aimee Morris began Twin Tigers as their previous bands dissolved. In February
2008, the Curious Faces / Violet Future EP was released to great reviews. The band quickly started building
a solid fan base throughout the southeast and played shows with Deerhunter, Dead Confederate, Jay Reatard, Black Lips, Dungen,
and A Place to Bury
After a slew of revolving guitarists and drummers the band debuted its current lineup with drummer Doug
Crump and guitarist Forrest Hall, opening for Les Savy Fav at the Earl in Atlanta only a few
weeks before their first trip to SXSW 2009. Upon returning from SXSW, the band began recording an album with Joel
Hatstat in Athens, GA.
Following the wrap up of their full length, the band was chosen for a nation wide tour with Minus the Bear
and The Antlers in the fall of 2009. Twin Tigers' debut album Gray Waves is out now
via Brooklyn based Old Flame Records.
