After a strong debut album in 2014, showcasing the five-piece progressive rock band’s diversity of influence, Agori Tribe starts 2015 off strong with “Tiny Tyrant Biggins & The Avant Groove,” also known as simply “Biggins.” The first single from an upcoming full length album of original material, “Biggins” further demonstrates the Memphis-based band’s need to stretch the boundaries of genre and fittingly incorporate a wide range of styles into a single track.
Agori Tribe was birthed in 2008 by founding members Sean Naughton, Will Nicholls and David Collins, while attending high school in Germantown, Tennessee (a suburb of Memphis). Naughton had been jamming with both Nicholls and Collins separately, and one day, they decided to all three get together. They knew after that first session that they wanted to form a band together. Keyboardist Dave Hash joined the band in 2009, and bassist Jeffery Naylor rounded off the current lineup in 2013.
