U.K. rock trio Tigercub have signed to Pearl Jam guitarist Stone Gossard's label Loosegroove Records and announced their first-ever North American headline tour, presented by Revolver. In addition, the band is set to open for Clutch and Eyehategod on select upcoming dates.

"Tigercub steps up to claim the front-runner status as the new heavy," Gossard enthuses. "They emerge from Brighton U.K. under the seven-foot frame of Mr. Jamie Hall and his Tigercub."

The Tigercub signing marks the reboot of Loosegroove, which Gossard founded in 1994 with Regan Hagar (who played drums in Gossard's longtime band Brad, as well as the seminal glam-punk band Malfunkshun). Throughout the Nineties, Loosegroove issued records from acts such as Critters Buggin, Malfunkshun, Weapon of Choice and Devilhead, and Gossard and Hagar notably signed a little band called Queens of the Stone Age and released their 1998 self-titled debut album. "When we discovered Tigercub, it felt like the right time to start Loosegroove back up," Hagar says. Stone adds, "It's almost 23 years to date that Queens of the Stone Age debuted at Mercury Lounge in NYC. And now Tigercub makes their Big Apple debut in the same club on April 16th. This is just the beginning for this incredibly talented group from Brighton, U.K., to enlighten us Yanks to the sound of the new heavy!"
