It’s hard to believe but Miniature Tigers’ sophomore LP – the nearly CoS Top Star-earning Fortress – is set for its first birthday on July 27th, and to celebrate, the Brooklyn-based pop maestros are releasing home demos of each of the album’s 10 tracks. The first four offerings – “Mansion of Misery”, “Rock N’ Roll Mountain Troll”, “Dark Tower”, and “Goldskull” — have been available, gratis, for a week now, so the band is taking them down, but CoS has teamed up with the boys to debut the next three demos: “Bullfighter Jacket”, “Egyptian Robe”, and “Japanese Woman Living in My Closet”.
They’re all available in exchange for an email address below, and what’s more is that CoS is the only place where interested parties can still download Pt. 1 and Pt. 2 for free. Both installments of Fortress: Demos will become unavailable when the final piece – Pt. 3 – is released next week. For those in a really celebratory mood, the band has announced a string of September tour dates, which are listed underneath the widget below.
