Tigerlily is the third and final album by the Canadian rock band Lillix, released in Canada on 24 August 2010. [1]

Lillix was a pop/rock band from Cranbrook, British Columbia, Canada, formed under the name Tigerlily in 1997 when the early members were in high school. The band was originally an all-girls band composed of guitarist Tasha-Ray Evin, keyboardist Lacey-Lee Evin, bassist Louise Burns, and drummer Sierra Hills. In 2001 the band was signed by Maverick Records and changed their name to Lillix as there was another band called Tigerlily. Hills left in 2002 and was replaced by Kim Urhahn, and later by Alicia Warrington. The Evin sisters announced that as of late 2006 the band was considered on hiatus due to the folding of their label, Maverick. The band announced its return in 2009, and released their third album Tigerlily independently in Canada on 24 August 2010. Sales of the album were poor and band activity ceased shortly thereafter.
