Welsh glam metal veterans TIGERTAILZ will release a very special version of “Fall In Love Again” featuring Suzi Chunk on vocals. This is to commemorate ten years since losing their bass player Pepsi Tate to pancreatic cancer.
The track will be released on Saturday, September 16, with the video premiering at the band’s tribute show to Pepsi at the Rescue Rooms, Nottingham.
Guitarist and original founding member Jay Pepper says: “It was very important to us that we never forget him, and in doing this very special evening ten years on since losing him, we hope everyone can come together and celebrate him for everything he was and remember what he brought to us all, and what he brought to TIGERTAILZ.
“The single can be pre-ordered from all the usual digital platforms and all proceeds will go to the charity set up in Pepsi‘s name, AmserJustinTime.”
TIGERTAILZ in 2015 tapped its bassist, Rob Wylde, to sing for the group following the departure of Jules Millis. Wylde was previously the frontman in TEENAGE CASKET COMPANY and the U.K. POISON tribute act POIZON.
Millis left TIGERTAILZ in March 2015 “due to personal reasons.” He joined the band in 2012 folllowing the acrimonious exit of TIGERTAILZ‘s longtime singer Kim Hooker.
TIGERTAILZ‘s was originally fronted by Steevi Jaimz, who left the group in 1988. Jaimz later attempted to register the TIGERTAILZ name as a trademark with the U.K. Patent Office and launch his own version of TIGERTAILZ with drummer Ace Finchum.
Pepper is the sole remaining member of TIGERTAILZ‘s classic lineup.
