Twin Tigers unleash the dark vibes of 'Death Wish'

Posted By on Fri, Apr 12, 2013 at 3:55 PM

Fresh off the April 9 release of a new album, Death Wish (Old Flame Records), Athens indie rockers Twin Tigers kick off a monthlong tour tonight (April 12) at The Drunken Unicorn. The group's latest offering has a darkwave feel that makes its title fitting. "The song "Death Wish" is about the time in my life when I quit using hard drugs and the massive emotional support I got from the girl I was seeing at the time," says guitarist and lead singer Matthew Rain. "This woman really saved my life." The album, recorded by guitarist Forrest Hall, was written by Rain on a keyboard instead of a guitar, the same method used to write the tracks on Twin Tigers' last album, Gray Waves. "A lot of the themes for this record are darker and more personal than that of the previous releases," Rain adds. "Everyone in the band had to deal with some personal tragedy in their life, be it death, relationships, or mental health. Despite all of this, this new album, Death Wish, is more upbeat and some have said it's catchier than its predecessors."

Twin Tigers, Absence of Ocean, and Shantih Shantih play the Drunken Unicorn tonight (Fri., April 12). $6-$8. 9 p.m.
