The band

Seven Purple Tigers are Freiburg’s finest up-and-coming Indie Rock act. Founded in 2015 by American singer Austin Horn and German guitarist Phil Dyszy in Krakow, Poland, the group have been hitting it hard as a four-piece in Freiburg since 2017. With drummer Felix Schwer and bassist Sebastian Heieck, the Tigers recorded their debut album in 2018, which was released in July of 2019. Seven Purple Tigers bring an unparalleled energy and stage presence to every show as they blaze through sets of powerful, melodic original music. Having placed runner-up in the 2019 Fürstenberg Derby at Zelt Musik Festival as newcomers, and having won Rampe 2020 in Jazzhaus Freiburg, Seven Purple Tigers make waves everywhere they grace the stage. The band has played memorable gigs, festivals and events all over Germany, as well as in Poland and the United States. The Tigers head into the next year with a mountain of new material, and are ready to pounce on audiences all over Germany, Europe and the world.

“Seven Purple Tigers’ new self-titled debut album is one of the best DIY overseas debuts we have heard this year.
The LP is chock full of surprisingly varying genres and styles, covering the spectrum from indie rock, pop, soul, R&B and experimental rock in ways that are creative and interesting.”
