Miniature Tigers are an indie rock band which formed in Phoenix, Arizona, United States in 2006. The band originally consisted of Charlie Brand (vocals, guitar), Algernon Quashie (guitar, keyboards), Alex Gerber (bass, vocals) and Rick Schaier (drums). The band is currently based in Brooklyn, New York. Brandon Lee has taken over for Alex. Miniature Tigers' sound was forged in the bedroom of frontman Charlie Brand, only to quickly outgrow the space, with the band soon finding itself on stage, in the studio and signed to Phoenix’s Modern Art Records in short order.
