February 19th 2011 will see Tygers of Pan Tang release a special 6 Track CD EP `The Spellbound Sessions` to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of their Iconic 1981 release `Spellbound.’ Following on from last year`s celebration of the Wildcat Album and after receiving fantastic feedback from the fans the band decided to continue with this concept of celebrating the past.
Robb Weir (Guitarist & Founder) says” I am very proud of the bands history as well as the current line up of the band. This EP as did `The Wildcat Sessions` gives an opportunity to celebrate and record some of my favourite songs and to remember the past through the current line up. We should never forget the Tygers History and I hope this shows the band will always recognise the early days of the band. `Spellbound` was a new era for the band in 1981 and after the success of `Wildcat` we had to follow on with something special which I think we did. There are a lot of bands that want to modernise their sound or image and forget what made them great in the beginning” I am not one of them.
The CD is a limited edition of 1000 copies and will be made available to the Tyger Force fan club from the 10th February.
The CD will be available for general sale from the website shop from the 19th February 2011, www.tygersofpantang.com priced at £5.00 + posting.
