Tiger Army II: Power of Moonlite is Tiger Army's second album, released on July 24, 2001. It featured London May on drums, Geoff Kresge on stand up bass and Nick 13 on vocals and guitar. London May left the band before their next album, Tiger Army III: Ghost Tigers Rise (he was replaced with Fred Hell). This album in particular features songs that are laced with rockabilly overtones (such as "Cupid's Victim"), though the band is considered psychobilly.

"Annabel Lee" references the popular poem of the same title by Edgar Allan Poe. Some songs, including "Under Saturn's Shadow" and "Annabel Lee," are backed with vocals by Davey Havok of AFI.
