Due to an injury to one of the band members Virginia doom rockers KING GIANT have been unable to tour in support of their praised sophomore LPDismal Hollow this year.
While regretfully the band cannot take the new album’s anthems to the highways of America at the present time, in lieu of touring, KING GIANT has opted to begin constructing new material for their upcoming third full-length release. Talks have also started between the band and Kevin Barker, who produced and directed several of the band’s previous videos, to begin work on another upcoming visual narrative based on another anthem from Dismal Hollow. Further details will be unveiled in the weeks ahead.
KING GIANT‘s thunderous Dismal Hollow can still be streamed in its entirety via THE OBELISK and the “Appomattox ” video at RUE MORGUE. Interviews with KING GIANT are available worldwide anytime in any format via Earsplit.
Released in January — a split release between KING GIANT’s band-operated imprint Graveyard Hill Records and The Path Less Traveled Records —Dismal Hollow was recorded at Inner Ear Studio (Minor Threat, Fugazi, Avail, Jawbox, Dave Grohl) Dismal Hollow flows with nearly fifty minutes of KING GIANT‘s homage-laden southern doom metal portrayed at its finest yet. The album is out now on digipak CD, deluxe digital download and 180-gram gatefold LP available in swamp green with bone swirl, and bone with gold haze color schemes.
