Definitely. I know you dig the classic rock/pop punk styles, we're both uncannily similar in that sense, so I think this will be right up your alley. I was surprised there wasn't a staff review for this already, it came out like a year and a half ago.

I'd heard the band's name floating around, but simply never bothered to look into them. The RIYL caught my attention immediately, but after reading what you wrote and your Brand New reference, this sounds like a cool record. Any clue when they'll be releasing their next album? I'll have to make sure I get accustomed to this one before then!

Their split with Balance & Composure drops May 11, and the 12" pre-orders sold out in two days, I think. Pre-orders are still up for the CD and digital though. Tigers Jaw have four songs on that, a few days before that they have an acoustic EP coming out which is just two songs re-recorded from this album, and finally their next full length is supposed to come back late summer/early fall I think.

Definitely check them out. Seems like other bands that are kind of on the same plane they are, like Title Fight, are starting to explode but Tigers Jaw are still on the ground.

"Let's face it, the only reason anybody knows anything about Scranton, Pennsylvania is because of The Office."
That is true for me.
"Tigers Jaw sounds to me like the album Brand New didn't write in between Your Favorite Weapon and Deja Entendu."
And that sounds awesome. I also like The Get Up Kids comaparison. Sounds like my cup of tea.

I love this album. It's one of my favorite pop punk albums.

Also, I'm pissed off that I didn't get the acoustic 7" in time. Sorry, I needed to vent.

Haha I (think) I might have gotten the very last one! Like five minutes after I ordered mine, RFC put it up on their twitter that it was sold out. Also, I don't understand why people think this is pop punk...it's like called The Dangerous Summer pop punk.

Good review.
After listening to a couple of songs, the band ain't too shabby, either.
