Tygers Of Pan Tang / Francesco Marras announced as new guitarist

The Tygers Of Pan Tang have announced that their new guitarist will be the Italian maestro Francesco Marras.

Vocalist Jack Meille told us: “The search for the ‘right’ person was a formidable one, made more complex by the restrictions placed upon us over the last six months.

I am really pleased that one of my fellow countrymen is joining the band.”

Francesco says: “I’m delighted to be joining the Tygers and I really can’t wait to start recording and playing live with them.”

Marras will join the band on stage, as COVID-19 restrictions allow and will work with the band on their next album.

Francesco Marras has previously worked as a session musician, having also worked with Italian metal band Screaming Shadows and his most recent solo album, ‘Time Flies’, is a tribute to the Guitar Greats who have inspired him.

Robb Weir told us: “I have worked with a number of great guitar players over the years, all of whom have added to the Tygers history.

“I can guarantee this will continue and no one will be disappointed by the quality and excitement that Francesco will bring to the band.”

Tygers Of Pan Tang recently re-released the album ‘Ambush’ with bonus tracks, including the unreleased single ‘Cruel Hands Of Time’.
