With the release of their upcoming EP "The Burrows" (Releasing on December 11th) Carbon Tigers may be new to the Chicago music scene, but not for long. With buzz being created via social networking, internet radio and flat out hard work, this five piece band consisting of: Chris Wienke [Keys/Vox], Nick Cudone [Guitar], Matt Irizarry [Guitar], Aaron Sweatt [Bass] and Jeff Simonelli [Drums] are making a name for themselves across the country.

Carbon Tigers have played packed rooms to sold out shows, at some of Chicago’s most prestigious venues such as The Beat Kitchen, Bottom Lounge, Metro, Reggies, Schubas, Subterranean, Elbo Room, several shows on campus at Columbia College and select states on the East Coast. They’ve opened up for several national acts including Maritime, Netherfriends, Kilimanjaro, and The Cool Kids, as well as having many headlining shows. Carbon Tigers has had the privilege of being awarded with several titles and recognitions. In April of 2010 Carbon Tigers was awarded with the title "Chicago’s Winner of the 2010 College Battle Of The Bands presented by AT&T" and later followed up with third place at Columbia College's Biggest Mouth Competition.

You can catch Carbon Tigers at Subt on December 11th.
