“War Of Change” is also featured on TFK’s first remix EP,Metamorphosiz: The End Remixes, Vol. 1, which released Dec. 4 as an exlusive to digital retailers.  The EP features 5 songs in all from The End Is Where We Begin by noted remix geniuses Steve Sidelnyk, Rob Persaud, Robbie Bronnimann, Andy Hunterand Solomon Olds.  Spending time at No. 1 on the iTunes Rock Album chart in its first week out, the EP futher sparked ESPN2 to load up “War Of Change,” “We Are” and “Let the Sparks Fly” remix tracks for upcoming placements on its show “First Take,”which is seen Monday through Friday at 10 a.m. ET.

Continuing a string of sports entertainment song placements, The End Is Where We Begin album tracks have already been featured on ESPN (NASCAR, NCAA basketball), EA Sports NHL 2013 video game, WWE (“Over The Limit” pay per view event), L.A. Kings’ (NHL) playoff reel (http://ht.ly/aFciK) and as the NFL Tennessee Titans’ 2012-13“kickoff” song.

As the band prepares to release its next remix EP in early 2013, The End Is Where We Begin also continues double-digit sales percentage growth over the band’s previous best-selling album, Welcome to the Masquerade. Receiving over 1,700, 5-star average customer reviews on iTunes® alone for The End Is Where We BeginTFK has found that sometimes the best way to move forward is to go back to the basics, taking all of the raw energy and emotion of the past and channeling it into the present.

For those who’ve been following the Ontario, Canada-bred players since their formation in 1997, it’s been a continuously escalating highlight reel that includes best-selling albums, top Active Rock hits (including “War Of Change,” “Let The Sparks Fly,” “Fire It Up,” and “Move”), tours like last summer’sThird Annual Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival, plus a slew of soundtrack slots. In fact, the group has literally infiltrated every facet of pop culture, from ongoing ESPN appearances, to various NASCAR, MLB, NHL, NCAA and NFL airings (including the 2010 Super Bowl), along with the “GI Joe” movie trailer, WGN-TV’s “Smallville” and EA Sports’ NHL 2010 and 2013 video games.

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
