Howling Giant Announce Tour Dates
Following the release of arguably one of the year’s best psych-stoner-metal releases, HOWLING GIANT will be delivering the goods live on a November tour. The band’s epic metaphysical sci-fi saga The Space Between Worlds, is out now from Blues Funeral Recordings.
Also announced, HOWLING GIANT has launched a new website, which includes an embedded and ready-to-play 80s-inspired “Comet Rider” video game where players can maneuver a little pixelated truck through a little pixelated desert and try to avoid hitting little pixelated rocks and tumbleweeds and cacti while an 8-bit arcade version of the tune plays over the action. Play the game now here. HOWLING GIANT Tour Dates: Nov 9 - Asheville, NC - The Odditorium (Steel and Stone Fest 2019) Nov 10 - Charlotte, NC - Skylark Social Club Nov 11 - Charleston, SC - Tin Roof Nov 12 - Wilmington, NC – Reggie’s 42nd Street Tavern Nov 13 - Richmond, VA - Wonderland RVA (w/Brother Hawk) Nov 14 - Washington, DC - Atlas Brew Works Nov 15 - Waterbury, CT - Brooklyn Cafe Nov 16 - Easthampton, MA - The Ohm Rehearsal Space Nov 18 - Brooklyn, NY - The Knitting Factory (w/Brother Hawk) Nov 21 - Johnson City, TN – The Hideaway Nov 22 - Huntington, WV - The V Club Nov 23 - Nashville, TN - Cobra (w/Horseburner) HOWLING GIANT blast forth a cosmic convergence of pulpy sci-fi themes and blistering psych-metal. Across numerous tours and festival appearances, three EPs and their first full album, the trio harness heavily nuanced progressive riff-rock complemented by otherworldly storytelling and the enduring message that the universe in which we live could stand to loosen up. They deliver this message from stages far and wide as often as possible. The Space Between Worlds is a concept album that follows the story of a huntress who travels the infinite metaphysical worlds brought into being by the dreams of humankind. In these realms, she encounters a dream eater which threatens to unravel the fabric of reality by devouring dreamers and destroying the dimensional gateways. Made up of Tom Polzine (guitar/vocals) and Zach Wheeler (drums/vocals) with the recent addition of Sebastian Baltes (bass/vocals), the band has expanded their already impressive vocal harmony approach with the addition of a third voice. Friend of the band Drew Harakal adds extra sonic textures to the album with his organ and synth skills. And Jason Shi of ASG appears with a guest vocal cameo on the track “Ice Castle.” Highlighting the band's tremendous musical prowess and versatility, The Space Between Worlds is a warp trail of heavy rock and roll so weird it can only be called progressive, giving space to every sonic weapon in the band’s arsenal, and all bound by the album's central concept and the members' towering musicianship.
