That pretty much describes Red Tiger’s unique sound. This Puerto Rican rock band is composed of Red Latú (vocals, guitar), Alex Figueroa (drums, vocals), Jahaziel Ramirez (Bass), and Alexis Perez (lead guitar), has been in the rock scene since 2005, taking their music to numerous venues and arenas. They have shared the stage with iconic rock bands such as Poison, Slaughter, Fire House and White Lion, serving as opening acts to their appearances in the Island.
The group released their first album, (self-titled) in 2010, which had a significant impact in the Puerto Rican rock scene allowing them to reach a wider audience and earning media recognition from both local and International news. On 2014, Red Tiger relocated themselves from Puerto Rico to Houston, TX and have since been playing in the local rock scene promoting their second album “Alive and Still Believing”. Their unique sound and incredible musicianship has captivated the Texan audience and the local media outlets, receiving very positive reviews on their shows and new album.
Larry Petro from KNAC.com, a renowned online radio station says “if you have been looking for a new band that carries the hard rock and heavy metal flame into a new generation, look no further, RED TIGER is it. Congrats RED TIGER, Alive…And Still believing has just made my Top Ten list for 2014 releases #3!!”
Most recently, the group has been sharing the stage with veteran rock bands like The Foundry (Iron Maiden, Twisted Sister, Black Symphony and Disturbed band members), KIX, Marzi Montazeri from (Philip H. Anselmo & the Illiegas), Krokus and Sebastian Bach in some of the most iconic stages in the City like the House of Blues, White Oak Music Hall, Fitzgeralds, The Concert Pub, Warehouse Live, BFE, The Fountain Pub and many other local venues.
The band continues growing their “Red Tiger Nation”, as they call their fan base, with the release of their third album “Evolution” on 8/18/18. The 14-track record fills a void in the current music scene with an authentic rock and roll progressive sound. The energetic blend of diverse tracks shows great instrumental maturity with killer solos, strong riffs, powerful beats and intense lyrics and vocals.
Red tiger kicked off their Evolution tour 2019-20 in January, aiming to expand to other cities in Texas and take their sound to different stages and audiences across the US.
"RED TIGER displays the stage presence of veteran rockers... the band may be newbies in the Houston music scene, but they are certainly not rookies.”
