With an impressive 60,000+ loyal fans on Facebook and over 1,000 international members of their ‘IAG Army’, I Am Giant have amassed a huge worldwide following with four #1 rock singles and a platinum album in New Zealand, music videos featuring skate and surfing icons Tony Hawk and Kelly Slater, opening for Slash in Australia, a UK tour with Taking Back Sunday, performances at Big Day Out in Auckland and Sydney, opening for Stone Temple Pilots in Singapore, touring throughout Asia several times, and playing the prestigious Viper Room and Mercury Lounge in the US.
Their debut album ‘The Horrifying Truth’, was recorded with acclaimed producer Forrester Savell (Karnivool, Dead Letter Circus, The Butterfly Effect). I Am Giant bound together what they describe as “a collection of stories, thoughts, observations and exploration” into a cohesive and hard-hitting explosion of sound and melody. From the first song ‘Purple Heart’ to closer ‘After The War’, the sharp lyrical themes draw the listener into the band’s growing awareness of mortality and loss of innocence. ‘The Horrifying Truth’ is pure, unadulterated rock, with its heart on its sleeve and an unquenchable fire in its soul.
I Am Giant recently released ‘The Horrifying Truth’ in the UK and Europe in October, and their single ‘Purple Heart’ won support on BBC Radio One as Zane Lowe’s ‘Next Hype’ , XFM, Kerrang! Radio and Q Radio as well as hitting the No 1 spot on Polish Radio Eska Rock.
The band are currently writing their second album due for release in 2013.
