Deathwish Inc. have announced the signing of the band Acid Tiger, featuring Ben Koller of Converge on drums.
"Acid Tiger are a Brooklyn based progressive rock/punk hybrid, featuring Converge/United Nations drummer Ben Koller among their ranks. With an energetic sway and swagger Acid Tiger effortlessly meld together a wide variety of influences into one truly unique and awesome animal. Drive Like Jehu/Hot Snakes vocal sass, All/Descendents fretboard gymnastics and drumming, and the soulful darkness of The Cult are all apparent in their collective roar. All of it executed with inspiring passion and fervor.
Acid Tiger‘s debut CD/LP will be released by Deathwish later in 2009.
Listen to an unmastered version of "Dark Hands" from the forthcoming album on their Myspace page now."
