British glam metal legends TIGERTAILZ have revealed their new lineup. Original members Jay Pepper (lead guitar) and Ace Finchum (drums) are joined by vocalist Jules Millis, guitarist Rob Wylde and bassist Jason Sims.
Jules, who also sings for acclaimed melodic rockers WHITE WIDDOW, grew up in Australia on a diet of ’80s glam rock, including KISS, RATT and TIGERTAILZ themselves. For Jules, joining the ‘TAILZ is a musical dream come true. “It’s amazing to be joining a band I grew up listening to back in Melbourne,” he said. “‘Bezerk’ and ‘Young And Crazy’ were part of the soundtrack to my youth, and I hope to do those classic songs and many others full justice. It feels crazy — such an honor to be involved with this thing. I can’t wait to see where this road leads — it should be quite a ride.”
Robb Wylde, frontman and guitarist with Brit rockers TEENAGE CASKET COMPANY, also joins on guitar. A versatile musician who certainly knows the meaning of showmanship, Robb has not only released three albums with TEENAGE CASKET COMPANY but also fronted U.S. glam rockers SINS OF AMERICA, and plays bass with melodic rockers VEGA. Expect Robb‘s explosive guitar sound and stage presence to take the ‘TAILZ experience to a new dimension.
Former PSYCHO KISS bassist Jason Sims completes the lineup. The full-metal Welshman lists METALLICA, IRON MAIDEN and BLACK SABBATH as his heroes and confesses that he’s “chomping at the bit” to get started. “It’s a strong lineup and I can’t wait to play these tracks live,” he adds. “I know how big TIGERTAILZ‘ fan base is, and I hope I can do them proud.”
TIGERTAILZ is set to release a video for their new version of “Fall In Love Again”, a song originally recorded for their 1987 debut album, “Young And Crazy”. Re-recorded in the studio and featuring the first vocal contribution from Jules, the single is a tribute to former bass player Pepsi Tate, who died in 2007. All proceeds from the song will support Amser Justin Time, the pancreatic cancer charity set up in his memory.
