GIANT Announces New Album and Tour with BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME

North Carolina’s GIANT have issued an update regarding the recording of their debut album, Telemores, for The End Records and East Coast and Canadian tour dates with BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME.

Here’s the band with the update:
“The new album, which will be entitled Telemores, is a little over halfway complete. We have most of the main parts of the arrangements onto tape, and all of the extra instrumentation comes next, which will really complete these new pieces. We can’t wait for you all to hear them, and see the artwork that us and Black Cloud have been working on for the album. Everything will be hand drawn/painted, and is composed directly as a result of listening to these new songs.

“We had a blast on our mini-tour with CITY OF SHIPS. they are an amazing band, and amazing people. They continue on for the next three weeks, so make sure to check them out if they are coming near you. We have also been asked to join BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME, this time as direct support, for some Canadian and East Coast dates before they go out with DREAM THEATER and OPETH. Right after that we continue on with KHANN for the rest of April. We hope to see you all out on the road!”
