Tigertailz Part Ways With Sarah Firebrand
January 9, 2012
Tigertailz have announced that they have parted ways with bassist Sarah Firebrand. Firebrand was named an official member of the band in early 2010, replacing Pepsi Tate who succumbed to pancreatic cancer on September 18, 2007, and appeared on the 2011 live album ‘Bezerk Live: Burnin’ Fuel’.
In an official statement the remaning members of Tigertailz — Kim Hooker, Jay Pepper, and Ace Finchum — said, “It’s with a heavy heart that we have to inform you that we’ve decided to part company with Sarah. The last thing the band needed right now was another line-up change, but unfortunately as a band we’re just not functioning and a change was needed to move forward. It’s unfortunate, but keeping a band going year-on-year isn’t easy and sometimes difficult decisions have to be made. We would like to thank Sarah for all she’s done and wish her all the best for the future.
Our priority is the longevity of Tigertailz and to raise as much money as possible for the Amser Justin Time charity which helps people suffering from Pancreatic cancer. With this in mind we’ll be announcing a new bass player as soon as possible and resuming touring duties.Thanks to you all for your fantastic support and let’s keep the faith…”
