Toyger are a five-piece alternative band from Middlesbrough. Formed in March 2010 they have gained a reputation for their inexorable, energetic live shows, having played a showcase for 6Music's Tom Robinson and shows with the likes of Tall Ships, Brontide and Tellison. Regional promoter of the year 'Ten Feet Tall' named Toyger as one of their favourite new acts of 2010.
