Pride Tiger was a Canadian hard rock music group formed in 2005 in Vancouver. Consisting of vocalist and drummer Matt Wood, guitarists Bob Froese and Sunny Dhak, and bassist Mike Payette, the band released their debut EP in 2006. They subsequently signed with EMI Music Canada, who released their full-length debut album in June 2007.[1]

The name "Pride Tiger" came from a mix of "Ride the Tiger" (a lyric from the Dio song, "Holy Diver") and "Pride Pops" (a drink similar to apple cider).[citation needed]

The band's single "White Witch Woman Blues" was playlisted on CBC Radio 3 and other Canadian radio stations. It was also noted, by many fans and other musicians - including Alice Cooper - that Pride Tiger bore a resemblance to the classic rock band Thin Lizzy.[2]

Dhak, Froese and Wood were all former members of 3 Inches of Blood; Payette was a former member of S.T.R.E.E.T.S.[3]

As of June 2009, the band had broken up.
