British glam metal legends TIGERTAILZ have announced that their fans can now purchase digitally enhanced downloads of the band's catalog at All Hard Rock. The group has included things like new, bonus features, including printable art, videos and original demo material. With each purchase, All Hard Rock makes a donation of one dollar to Amser Justin Time.
In 2007, TIGERTAILZ's co-founder and bass player Pepsi Tate (real name: Justin Smith) succumbed to the effects of pancreatic cancer at the young age of 42. In his name, his widow and friends have registered and developed a charity, found online at AmserJustinTime.org. Amser Justin Time offers awareness to the deadly disease as well as sets up care provisions for those suffering from the illness in Wales. Donations also help to fund medical research to find a cure for pancreatic cancer.
All Hard Rock founder and CEO Joe Dolan commented: "I want to make every effort to enhance this wonderful charity. My own music career was long inspired by TIGERTAILZ, and as a bass player myself, I would emulate Justin when I got on stage to perform. In honor of all he offered me as an artist and a fan, this is something I personally feel is mandatory for All Hard Rock to offer."
On the All Hard Rock web site, TIGERTAILZ has offered Dolan creative license to distribute the music. Along with the music, fans can make a charitable donation of $3 in exchange for a full resolution download of the 2012 video for the track "Fall In Love Again". Eight featured album downloads are also available, including the original demo recordings from "Bezerk" and "Wazbones" releases. The newly assembled album download features 26 demo songs, enhanced to 320 kbps, for $14.95.
TIGERTAILZ in June 2012 revealed their new lineup. Original members Jay Pepper (lead guitar) and Ace Finchum (drums) are joined by Jules Millis, guitarist Rob Wylde and bassist Jason Sims.
