Daniel Striped Tiger are a punk band from Boston, Massachusetts. Formed in October 2003, DST started with the motivation of participating in a DIY punk scene that its members grew up in. DST is influenced by much of the early '90s emo/post-hardcore scene (Dischord, Gravity), as well as bands such as Orchid, Wolves, 400 Years, etc. After a handful of shows and time spent writing, the band headed to Dead Air Studios in Amherst, MA to record a 10 song, self-released demo. This release of harsh noisy punk was handmade and distributed.
