TRIANGLES AROUND US
Tigers On Opium is a hard rock band based out of Portland, OR.
The quartet consists of members Juan Carlos Caceres, Nate Wright, Charles Hodge, and Jeanot Lewis-Rolland.
They have toured extensively throughout the Western United States having played more than 60 shows on the road in the last year, playing with a wide range of acts such as:
Zeke, Pike vs the Automaton, Hippie Death Cult, Cairo Knife Fight, Spirit Mother,
Mickey Avalon, Jared James Nichols, 16, Kadabra, Wizzerd, Ealdor Bealu, Witch Ripper, Sorcia, Twin Void, Salem's Bend and many more.
Tigers teamed up with Forbidden Place Records to release two EP's, 503.420.6669 vol 1 in January of 2021, and 503.420.6669 vol 2 in January of 2022. The EP's were printed to cassette and are currently sold out having moved 200 copies.
The new unreleased full length album - Psychodrama - is a sonically dynamic, hard hitting exploration of various psychological and social experiences that have shaped our cultural evolution. Occultism, Propaganda, Atomic Warfare, Media Consumption, Religion, Social Unrest, Nostalgia, Mental Struggle, Pop Culture, Revolution, and Change - are all themes explored throughout the album.
Critics have frequently compared the band’s sound to heavy hitters such as
Queens of the Stone Age, Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats, Electric Wizard, Torche, Alice in Chains and Refused - And like these bands, Tigers shares a hunger for the exploration of new ideas, while simultaneously staying rooted in what makes all this music timeless... THE RIFF! The result is a dark and dirty psychedelic fuzz that leaves the typical genre conventions in an insalubrious haze.
