London trio Three Trapped Tigers new single, 'Reset', is taken from their debut EP 'One Route Or Die', which was released through the label Blood and Biscuits in May 2011.
Directed by Chris Boyle, the music video for Reset features British actor Matt Berry (The Mighty Boosh; Garth Marenghi's Darkplace; The I.T Crowd) as an insane cult leader who declares himself 'the saviour of the universe'. The video has the feel of amateur propaganda and the garish, hypnotic and psychedelic effects are perfect for the electronic sound of Three Trapped Tigers.
The band consists of Tom Rogerson (keyboards, vocals, piano); Matt Calvert (guitar, synths, vocals) and Adam Betts (drums, electronics). Their debut EP, One Route Or Die, was released to critical acclaim from the likes of NME, Drowned In Sound and The Irish Times. Their first five track EP was produced with the help of Gordon Raphael, who is perhaps most famous for his
work producing the first two albums of groundbreaking rockers Strokes.
Three Trapped Tigers have announced a series of live dates throughout the UK, which are as follows:
19/09 Sheffield @ The Harley
21/09 Glasgow @ The Captains Rest
22/09 Liverpool @ The Shipping Forecast
23/09 Dublin @ Crawdaddy
