Scranton indie-punks Tigers Jaw have announced details of a brand-new album, I Won’t Care How You Remember Me.
The band's sixth studio effort is due out on March 5 via Hopeless Records, with vocalist/guitarist Ben Walsh explaining, “This album is a hopeful time capsule of a band who has been through a lot together. It’s about growth, self-reflection, and figuring out how to be present in the moment to really take stock of what’s important, without getting sidetracked by the opinions of others or things out of our control.

“Tigers Jaw can get through anything and be stronger because of it. We’ve endured lots of change over the last 15 years, but a lot of things have remained consistent. We make the music we want to make, we push each other to continue evolving and growing as musicians, and we are so proud of where we are now.”
On that note, the four-piece have also unveiled ace new single Cat's Cradle, along with a video directed by Drew Horen and Lauren H. Adams.
“Cat’s Cradle is about the realisation that no matter how much love, effort and consideration you put into a friendship, sometimes it just isn’t enough to make it work,” says vocalist/keyboardist Brianna Collins. “The lyrics reflect on how being passive aggressive and not communicating directly can just lead to tension, confusion, and frustration in any relationship. Confrontation can be really challenging, especially when you’re worried about how what you feel might make someone else feel, and I have the tendency to suppress my own concerns and apologize first. With this song I wanted to acknowledge my own thoughts and emotions without feeling bad for having them.”
The tracklist for I Won’t Care How You Remember Me is as follows:
1. I Won’t Care How You Remember Me
2. Cat’s Cradle
4. New Detroit
5. Can’t Wait Forever
