The album’s first single, “Guardian,” is streaming now via NPR’s All Songs Considered blog who call TIGERS JAW, “…thoughtful songwriters mining the sorrows of pop, particularly the thematic and sonic tumult of Fleetwood Mac.”

spin will be available for pre-order beginning March 23rd at all DSPs with exclusive pre-order bundles – including limited edition vinyl – available at www.tigersjaw.com.  All orders will receive an instant grat download of lead track “Guardian.”

Recorded with producer and longtime collaborator Will Yip at Studio 4 in Conshohocken, PA, spin is the inaugural release from Black Cement Records, a new imprint under Atlantic Records.  Yip will serve as the label’s ambassador, heading up all A&R efforts. For more information on Black Cement Records visit, www.blackcementrecords.com.

This May TIGERS JAW will embark on a North American headline tour in support of spin, which will see the band joined by guests Saintseneca and Smidley.  Dates get underway with a special record release show on May 19that Washington, DC’s Rock & Roll Hotel and then continue through June 24th where the tour wraps up with a performance at Royale in Boston, MA.  Tickets for the tour will go on sale Friday, March 24th at 10:00 AM local time.  For tickets and more information visit, www.tigersjaw.com.

Comprised of Ben Walsh and Brianna Collins, TIGERS JAW has gripped listeners and press across the globe with their candid compositions and alluring harmonies.  spin (stylized all lowercase) sees Walsh and Collins trading off lead vocals which glow with sincerity on this collection of incredibly understated indie-pop classics. Tracks such as “Guardian,” “June,” and “Escape Plan” shine on spin, which follows TIGERS JAW’s 2014 critically adored LP, Charmer.  “…The sound of a band bravely moving forward,” declared Pitchfork while Stereogum applauded Walsh and Collins’, “…soul-baring lyrical honesty,” adding, “TIGERS JAW are a revelation…”  Profoundly personal and vibrantly textured, spin exhibits Walsh and Collins’ remarkable ability to capture the sentiments and complexities of a moment through melody and introspection.
