Much like The Anniversary, Tigers Jaw occupies a permanent place in our adolescent hearts that’s grown into our adulthood. (Don’t even get us started on this emotional bombshell.) The Scranton, PA duo of Ben Walsh and Brianna Collins has offered a continued distillation of the wrenching sound that produced 2014’s Charmer LP, a record filled with pensive harmonies and heart-break confessions. For their recent tour, the group hit the road alongside backing musicians Luke Schwartz (bass), Teddy Roberts (drums) and Joe Kane (guitar). They all visited Chain Fest in Orange County last Saturday, playing alongside like-minded anthem churners Basement and Title Fight.
Photographer Erica Lauren spent the day backstage with the group amidst signings and tour bus lounging before their explosive show.
