Gustave Tiger (HU)
Gustave Tiger are a Hungarian art punk band formed in 2013. Their debut EP Mitanni Mares was released the same year, followed by the first full length album At The Idyll's End. The band’s releases received outstanding reviews locally (best Hungarian album of 2014 on leading portal index.hu) and internationally, earning their song Sister Sybarite a feature on the Rough Trade compilation Counter Culture 15 in 2015. Gustave Tiger’s new record, Chaste And Mystic Tribadry was released 30 May 2016. The first single, Senki se tenger, premiered on the Hungarian national radio. Immediately after a sold out record release show in their hometown, the band went on the road to play in London, Manchester and Liverpool. Starting off as a power trio with Peter Mezősi on drums, Csaba Szabó on bass, vocals, and Gergő Dorozsmai on guitar, vocals, Gustave Tiger were soon joined by the brilliant young singer Erika Szurcsik to complete the line-up that created the pop sensibility infused psychedelic punk rock vision of At The Idyllʼs End. New drummer Dávid Fekete and bassist Márton Hó joined the band in 2015. In 2015 Gustave Tiger went on the road with At The Idyll’s End, giving an official showcase at SXSW 2015 in Austin, TX, and also performing in Los Angeles, San Antonio, London, Berlin, Vienna, Warsaw amongst others. Opening for acts like We Are Scientists (USA), The Crystal Stilts (USA), Jack Of Heart (F), Vagina Town (F), Animal Bodies (CAN), Tellus Children (SE), Rakta (BRA) Gustave Tiger have swiftly built up a following in their hometown of Budapest.
