Webshop Postal Rates
30th June 2013
A lot of you have expressed concerns over the postal rates for NON UK delivery on T shirts we sell in the webshop. We wanted to explain the situation so you have the full story. Last year alone we had 26 parcels where the buyer claimed that the item was lost in the post, as you can imagine this costs the band a considerable amount of money so we decided that all value items would be sent International signed for. The actual signed for element costs more than the postage at £5.70 so if we take a standard delivery to Germany for example it costs £4.10 for delivery, £5.70 for the signed and £0.70 for packaging. We actually lose money on shipments to the USA and NON European countries but we needed to set a cap charge. As a gesture to combat this charge we do offer a free CD EP and we try to give away items as well as an incentive, we are trying guys honestly............................
We would suggest however that if your thinking about buying a New Crazy Nights shirt, these will be available at shows from October at a cost of £15.00 or 20.00 euro.............................
We do appreciate the postal costs are high and we understand in these difficult times money is tight.
New 'Crazy Nights' Shirts
As promised here is a sneak preview of the new Crazy
Nights shirts which are now in the
shop for pre-order but please note delivery will
not be until August. As a special treat to you guys
the first 25 orders will also receive a free
laminated and fully signed Set List.

New Guitarist Announced
15th February 2012
If 2012 was a year to remember for the Tygers of Pan Tang with the release of the acclaimed studio album ‘Ambush’, then 2013 is set to be another!
It is with great pleasure that we can now introduce to you Michael McCrystal as the new guitarist for the Tygers of Pan Tang. Micky Crystal (as he is affectionately named) hails from the North East of England. He has been playing in local bands and doing the live circuit for a number of years now. Since the age of 18 he has also been teaching guitar for the Yamaha Music School.
Robb Weir comments “After Dean decided to leave the band late last year, our researchers checked out bands playing in the North East looking for a suitable replacement. It’s great to know that the rock and metal scene is so prominent, and there is still so much talent around!”
“Micky actually came to our attention through Gav and he was invited along to the auditions. Once Micky started playing with the band, it became obvious he had everything we were looking for. The recruitment process wasn’t easy and we would like to express our sincere thanks to all the other guitarists who auditioned for the Tygers.”
“We’re absolutely delighted to have Micky on board – he has an unbelievable talent. We can’t wait to start playing the live shows and laying down some new demo ideas.”
On joining the band, Micky said “It's a great privilege to be part of the Tygers and I'm very excited to work with such a great team of people. The rehearsals so far have been great and it’s safe to say I can't wait to get my claws into the live shows ahead!”
Micky takes up the position of Lead Guitarist with immediate effect. He follows on from some great guitarists and we are confident that you will be blown away by this new artist to the world’s stage.
There will be more to follow on Micky shortly.....

Deano Leaves Tygers
3rd January 2013
It is with a great deal of sadness that we are announcing the departure of Dean Robertson (Deano) from the Band. Dean has been a valued member for over 12 years and will be sorely missed. His contribution to the band was immense and he never failed to surprise with both his song writing and guitar playing skills. Further to that he is a great bloke and we will miss his humour particularly on the road when he kept everyone entertained throughout. For those who know Dean he is involved in many musical projects including Live Wire which keeps him busy most weekends, he also has a desire to write and record his own material and we would like to wish him every success with this. The band would like to publicly Thank Dean for everything and wish him well for the future. Auditions to replace Dean will be held shortly but we are keen to retain the North East heritage of the band. If your based in the North East and you would like to be considered send your details via the contact page of the website.

Ambush - Cover Artwork
12th June 2012
As we are getting closer to announcing a
release date for the new album 'Ambush
we thought it would be nice to show you
some of the parts in putting such a
project together. We hope that you are
reading the Blogs on the song writing
process and finding them of interest,
there is still a lot more to come on
this so stay tuned. The Artwork for
'Ambush' was something that we thought
long and hard about as we wanted to keep
with the early album cover themes.
Rodney Matthews had always been in our
minds as the Crazy Nights album cover
has long held a special place in Tygers
fans hearts so we contacted him and he
agreed to design 'Ambush' for us. Rodney
supplied two options and we chose one
that we thought would sit against the
first three albums perfectly. To say we
were blown away with the work is an
understatement and we hope you like it
too. Below is actual original artwork
signed by the man himself, this is
the first time we have released this for
Sweden Rock Festival
12th June 2012

We would also like to Thank the organisation Team at the Festival who were superb from start to finish, this is very well organised event and we cannot praise them high enough.
Check out James Hetfield of Metallica
wearing a classic Wildcat shirt,
although unofficial I think we can
forgive such a Metal Icon. If James or
his management want to contact us I am
sure we can find a few official shirts
to send him to wear, obviously free of

Coming Soon - Studio Report part
1st December 2011
We thought it would be of interest to you if we gave you a little insight into how the new album is constructed from writing stage right through to the recording and mix. At the moment the band have about twenty songs in various stages, although we pretty much know which twelve we will pick for the album. The band are really excited with the new songs which show how the band have progressed since 'Animal Instinct'.
Craig plays a vital role in the arrangement of songs from the first 'riff' idea to the final arrangement and 'Stage 1' will be his version of events. Stage 2 will be the actual recording process report and for Stage 3, we will ask Chris T to put his thoughts down on the sound and vibe he is trying to get from the mix and pulling the sound together.
Stage 1 will be with you shortly so keep checking out the site for more details.
The Wildcat Sessions released on
Chris Tsangarides to produce new
28th November 2011
We are delighted to announce that Chris Tsangarides will be producing and mixing the forthcoming album. Recording is scheduled for February 2012 at Chris's studio in Kent and mixing will take place in March. It is a real coup for the band to get such a well known producer and we know he will ensure that the vibe, feel and spirit of the album is in keeping with the Tygers signature sound. For those of you who are not familiar with Chris, he was at the desk for both the 'Wildcat' and 'Spellbound' albums back in 1980/81 which really helped to make these albums the classic releases that they became. Chris also makes an appearance in the 'Anvil story' as well as being associated with a multitude of top class Bands.
The new album which has a working title of 'Ambush' will be released circa June 2012, this is a little later than planned but we wanted to make sure we had everything in place.

The Charity Director who has promoted the event Lee Manning started and named the Charity after the tragic death of his brother Ben who was a huge music fan and died on a night out. This is a huge, worthwhile cause and its going to be a great night so we urge everyone to travel to the event where possible. The Tygers shows are few and far between this year due to writing and recording needs so grab this chance. There will be 2 or 3 other bands on so it will be great value for money. The Tygers will be playing a full set and it will give everybody a chance to hear a lot of songs from the 'Spellbound' album which was celebrated early in the year with the release of the Spellbound sessions.
Further details on the event can be sourced from Lee on email address email@example.com
'Bang Your Head Festival' Warm-Up Shows in
UK & France - July 14/15th
25th April 2011
On July 16th the band will play the fantastic 'Bang Your Festival' in Germany so to break the long journey and to get some active stage time on the road prior, two shows have been booked.
Following rehearsals on the 14th July the band will play 'The 'Riverside Bar' venue in Selby which is located between Leeds & York so its easy access for all our fans based in Yorkshire and the North East. Its great to finally play the Riverside especially as its the owners birthday on the 14th so it will be a special show & occasion. It will also be the first time that the band have had chance to play the new set in the UK which includes a whole lot of songs from the 'Spellbound' album following the release of 'The Spellbound Sessions' EP in February. Tickets will be priced at £5.00 for this one so there is no excuse not to come along for a great night of NWOBHM.
The following day the band will make the long trip to France and play the 'Pacific Rock' venue which is located on the outskirts of Paris. Its been a long time since the band played in France so it will be another great chance to get stage fit and play for our fans. Again the show will be the full production set. This will be a free entry show so get down for another great night of NWOBHM.
There will be local support at both venues.
We will have a full range of Tygers merchandise on offer at both shows,
