The influential and legendary British hard rock band Tygers Of Pan Tang are set to release a brand new album, 'Ambush', on 24th September, celebrating a landmark year in the band's history.
'Ambush' features 11 tracks of handsomely crafted melodic rock, recorded and produced by Chris Tsangarides who produced the band's historic 'Wildcat' and 'Spellbound' albums in 1980 and 1981 respectively. Those early albums were critically acclaimed and similarly revered by fans, as was the Tygers' most recent album 'Animal Instinct' which received this praise from reputed writer Geoff Barton in his 8/10 review in Classic Rock:
"A pedigree album, combining the rough 'n' readiness of the early Wild Cat-era of the band with the glossy approach when they had John Sykes on guitar. If I was thinking of buying 'Good To Be Bad' (Whitesnake), 'Songs From The Sparkle Lounge'(Def Leppard) or 'Animal Instinct' and I only had enough money for one CD, I might just plump for this one."
