Tigertailz Announce The Addition Of Female Bassist Sarah Firebrand
January 20, 2010
What better way to kick off a new decade than with some MAJOR Tigertailz newz! The band have big plans for 2010, and the first of those is welcoming a new band member to their ranks!
You won’t need the eyes of a hawk to work out that something looks different about Tigertailz. Please welcome Sarah Firebrand, the group’s brand new queen of the four-string sting. The band states, “We think she’s an amazing find and we’re sure all you Tailz maniacs will be welcoming her to our insane world as warmly as we have. It also means that the average age of the band has dropped considerably – that’s right, we’re officially getting younger.”
Sarah first grabbed some headlines with all-girl rock trio Firebrand, later playing with Fuzzbox / Ginger And The Sonic Circus singer Vix in her side project Vix N The Kix.
Sarah says: “I was only five when ‘Bezerk’ came out and it’s an incredible honour to think that I’m now part of the band. It’s a completely thrilling opportunity to which I’ll be giving 100%. This is iconic British rock music unlike anything before or since, and I can’t wait to tear it up on stage with these guys!”
As most of you will know, Glen ‘Nailz’ Quinn has been helping Tigertailz out on bass since Pepsi Tate passed away so tragically in September 2007. He stood in for Pepsi at a very difficult time for everyone, and was an absolute marvel. Thanking Nailz for his immeasurable contribution, Jay Pepper says: “It’s thanks to Nailz that we were able to carry on – as Pepsi wanted us to. Now we think it’s time to get back to a full-band line-up, and we’re all incredibly excited to have Sarah aboard. She is the injection of life we need, and the fans are going to love her…So with a toast to the future and much respect to the past, we give you the Firebrand!”
Tigertailz will play Hard Rock Hell ‘Road Trip’ in Ibiza, June 2-9, www.hrhroadtrip.com
