Shock rock heroes TIGERTAILZ step into 2014 bolder and with more confidence than ever before with the release of a video for new song ‘One Life’. It’s the second video to be released from the band’s recent comeback EP ‘Knives’ (on Scarlet Records), described by ‘Kerrang!’ as “a claws-out return as shock rock vets strike back”.
Featuring footage of the band on the road during their extensive UK ‘Knives’ tour last November, ‘One Life’ sends out a strong anti-war message, and pays poignant homage to the men and women who serve their countries, as well as the thousands of civilians who have been lost to war. With 2014 also marking the centenary of the outbreak of World War One and the 70th anniversary of D-Day, that message seems both relevant to today and steeped in history.
Guitarist Jay Pepper had this to say about ‘One Life’:
“‘One Life’ is dedicated to the allied servicemen and women currently fighting overseas in Afghanistan and Iraq – and also the thousands of civilian lives that have been lost in the recent wars within the region. But it’s also a reminder of the tragic loss of life in any war. Syria being the latest debacle. It seems we just never learn… Most of us can only imagine what it feels like to endure death and destruction on a daily basis. But hopefully the lyrics in some way capture what goes through someone’s mind when their caught up in these devastating situations. If the song brings some small comfort to one person then it was worth writing…”
