After individually relocating 300 miles to further develop their craft, the Newcastle, UK based pheavy progressive rock quartet GIANT WALKER was coincidentally born in the South, bound together by their northern heritage and a shared love for bands such as Karnivool, Soundgarden, Radiohead and Deftones. Written during the 2020 lockdown, their upcoming releases feature themes of self isolation and a dystopian reality.
Their music captures the many lows of loneliness and tips a hat to the music that gets you through hard times; sweeping you up in a conceptual journey, from giant riffs to melancholic melodies, and ambient soundscapes.
Recorded, mixed and mastered by Chris Coulter (Arcane Roots, Jamie Lenman) at the Ranch and Stakeout Studios, Giant Walker have stitched together a sound, woven from the fabric of their influences, that can’t be found elsewhere.
Today, we’re pleased to be a part of the band’s important step of their career, the release of their debut single ’The Fact in Fiction’, which goes live on streaming services on October 15th, but has its early premiere today right here on IDIOTEQ!
The song sets the tone for the rest of the release cycle; powerful riffs, hypnotic vocals and a weighty rhythm section, that drives the entire track and captivates you long after its closure.
