Kiss the Tiger is a five-piece rock ‘n’ roll outfit from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Drawing on influences from Tom Petty, The Rolling Stones, Patti Smith, and Iggy Pop, Kiss the Tiger “does rock revivalism exceptionally well” (Michael Madden, City Pages). In February of 2017 KTT were the runner-up in Star Tribune’s ‘Are You Local?’ Best New Band competition. Shortly after they recorded their EP, “Elliot Park” which was released in November of 2017. The music video for “Starting to See You” off of “Elliot Park” was named one of Minnesota’s Best Music Videos of 2018 by The Current. 'Let Me Bleed' marks Kiss the Tiger's second full-length release.

“The five-piece have refined their hard-edged blues-rock into a multifaceted blend of retro styles, including gospel, folk, and classic rock, that comes roaring out on their upcoming February release, Let Me Bleed”

(Jerard Fagerberg, City Pages)

“Almost instantly the entire crowd seemed to be captivated by singer Meghan Kreidler. I wasn’t able to take my eyes off the woman as she stalked the stage” 

(Langen Goldstien, Twin Cities Media)


“It was loud. It was fierce. And I was lovin’ it” 

(Kathleen Ambre, Music in Minnesota)

CityPages “Best Of” 2019

Front-woman Meghan Kreidler named “Best Stage Style” in City Pages 2019 “Best Of” issue.

“Kiss the Tiger’s latest album, Let Me Bleed, captures the band’s sound, swaggering and raw. All that’s missing? Singer Meghan Kreidler’s stylish stage presence, which captures that mix of premeditation and recklessness that’s the essence of rock ’n’ roll. She mixes in a little Patti Smith, a little Mick Jagger, and a whole lot of Meghan Kreidler, trying on various stage poses, then tossing them away like she’s deciding what outfit to wear. And she’s a snappy dresser to boot.”
