Worn Out Tigers formed as a nameless, instrumental three-piece late in the summer of 2008. At its outset, the group consisted of guitarist Jack Musil, bassist Max Wesoloski (both former members of alt-indie band Deep Sleep Empire), and drummer Trevor Read. The trio recorded an unmastered – and ultimately unreleased – three-song demo of early instrumental tracks in February 2009. Braden Faisant joined the group as its vocalist and primary lyricist later that spring. The band adopted the temporary alias Abrelos Ojos and began playing local shows in earnest, landing opening spots for Dr. Manhattan and Orbs. By September, they were prepped to record a second three-song demo, which they released as a free, digital-only edition the following year. Early in 2010, the group permanently adopted the name Worn Out Tigers. Months of exhaustive experimentation and revision culminated in the group’s third (and first “official”) release. In June, they traveled to Fairless Hills, PA to record with Vince Ratti (Circa Survive, Title Fight, August Burns Red) at The Skylight Studio. Worn Out Tigers self-released their eponymous four-track EP on September 11, 2010. The band continued to write and perform throughout the following year, embarking on several East Coast/Midwest mini-tours with Run, Forever (Tiny Engines), Pittsburghers Edhochuli, and In the Wake of Giants. In the summer of 2011, Worn Out Tigers went on indefinite hiatus, returning briefly the following winter for a short run of shows and an official farewell performance. The group reunited in the summer of 2013 for a raucous, one-off anniversary show. During their three years together, Worn Out Tigers had the privilege of sharing the stage with artists like La Dispute, Cancer Bats, Algernon Cadwallader, White Wives, and 1994!. They leave behind several unrecorded tracks, a surfeit of unexplored ideas, a trail of empty Pabst cans and Taco Bell wrappers, and a legacy of staying weird.
