Rin Tin Tiger is an alternative folk rock trio from San Francisco, CA. High energy, lyric heavy, acoustic guitar lead songs about life in contemporary society. The sound is often described as a blend between early Bob Dylan, Violent Femmes, and Tupac. They have shared the stage with Minus the Bear, Young the Giant, Manchester Orchestra, Max Bemis of Say Anything, The Lumineers, Fences, Family of the Year, Rogue Wave, Los Amigos Invisibles, Mike Coykendall, Ida, Hey Marseilles, and many more along the West Coast.
Their new album "Splinter Remedies" comes out August 20, 2013, and will be the bands third release and second full length. It was recorded live by Aaron Hellam at Castle Ultimate Studios in Oakland, CA.
"Uptempo Dylanesque tunes… these guys bear watching" – SF WEEKLY
"Genuine, unadulterated folk alternative. It’s the kind of album you might get a craving for at the end of your night when only that one song will really hit the spot." (TOXIC POCKETBOOK) – The Bay Bridged
