Tigers are back with “Warn Me,” their first new single in three years, alongside the announcement that they've signed to Hopeless Records. The band have finished recording their sixth full-length album, returning to work with longtime producer and friend Will Yip. Teddy Roberts and Colin Gorman have joined veteran members Ben Walsh and Brianna Collins to craft this new batch of Tigers Jaw songs after years of tightening their playing together on the road. While the emotionally charged “Warn Me” isn’t featured on their forthcoming release, it offers a preview of their new and expanded sonic approach.
“‘Warn Me’ is about being blindsided by something positive in your life. It’s that moment when you realize you normalized unhealthy relationships or behaviors. I’ve been hesitant in the past to write from a more positive point of view, but my entire personal life went through an upheaval a few years back and it inspired me to see things through a new lens,” explains Walsh. “This was one of the first songs we worked on with Colin and Teddy, and feels like a perfect song to kick off this next chapter of our band. [Producer] Will Yip did such a great job of bringing out everyone’s musical personality in our performances. It’s a relentlessly driving but fun song, and I think it captures our live sound and energy really accurately.”
