Formation and early work

Twin Tigers was formed in Fall 2007 by Matthew Rain and Aimee Morris. They were both co-workers at the Grit restaurant owned by Michael Stipe of R.E.M. and were dating at the time. Soon, they added Enoch Bledsoe and Richard Young to the band. They released the EP Curious Faces Violet Future in January 2008. Eventually Blesdoe and Young left the band and were replaced by drummer Doug Crump and guitarist Forrest Hall a few weeks before the band went to SXSW in 2008. Their first album, Gray Waves, was released in March 2010.
