Survival; “We spent almost twice as much time
recording this album than the last one and so there is just
more of everything. It was a real challenge too... We
really pushed ourselves and our own expectations to the
absolute limits. It’s bigger, better, heavier, more
intense yet a more intimate I Am Giant. The album is a
representation of how we are feeling – and we can not wait
to play the album live for our fans in New
