Tiger Army is back in action with its fourth studio album and follow up to 2004’s Tiger Army III: Ghost Tigers Rise. Hailing from Berkeley, Calif., the trio consisting of Ricky 13, Jeff Roffredo and “Wasted” James Roffredo has retained its psychobilly style and lyrics, while growing in its overall complexity and range of sound.

While it is indeed less intense as some of their previous efforts, Music From Regions Beyond is a tasty treat for the ears with the catchy and soothing voice of Ricky 13 and the presence of the band’s trademark stand-up bass sound. Standout tracks include the dance floor friendly “Afterworld” and a trip south of the border with the Spanish vocals in “Hechizo de Amor.”

Its first single, “Forever Fades Away,” has been getting intense airplay on KROQ, and the band will be playing on the entire Warped Tour. Music From Regions Beyond is a killer album that will please just about everyone from hardcore fans to casual listeners of the genre.
