The Legendary Tigerman European Tour presenting his new album ‘MISFIT’ in London.
For this album, Tigerman takes on the rock n’ roll ride full on, no more a one-man-band, now touring as an amazingly powerful quartet, with low bass, drums and Baritone Sax.
The story of MISFIT starts with a a road movie, HOW TO BECOME NOTHING, a three head project by Paulo Furtado, Rita Lino & Pedro Maia. In May 2016, the trio lands in LAX to film a psychedelic adventure in the form of a road movie, between Los Angeles and Death Valley, about the philosophically disturbed journey of a man searching to become nothing. During two weeks of travelling, Paulo “Tigerman” Furtado spends his days writing the diaries of this imaginary man, acting, and at night, in motel rooms across the California deserts, armed with a Gibson SG, he starts writing the songs of MISFIT.
MISFIT was recorded at Rancho de La Luna, Dave Catching´s legendary studio in Joshua Tree, in the heart of the Mojave Desert, and mixed and co-produced in Paris by Johnny Hostile (The Savages, John & Jehn) at Pop Noire Studios.
Sean Riley will be opening the show and presenting ‘California‘, his new solo album, without The Slowriders.
Challenged by Paulo Furtado, Afonso Rodrigues went to the United States and together they traveled through California and recorded, in motel rooms, the first solo album by Sean Riley.
A raw recording with no artifacts – in “California“, if you pay attention, you can hear the sounds of each place they passed: Los Angeles, Carmel By The Sea, San Francisco and Joshua Tree (Rancho de la Luna).
The album, will be released in vinyl and digital edition and will hit the stores on April 13th and will have an UK premiere here.
This concert is supported by Camões Institute.
