I Am Giant

I Am Giant Science & Survival Album And Tour


London based kiwi rock band I Am Giant is proud to announce the release of their sophomore album SCIENCE & SURVIVAL on July 4th via Sony Music New Zealand.

To celebrate the release, the band will complete a nine-date New Zealand tour, beginning in Christchurch on July 17th and finishing in Auckland at the Powerstation on August 2nd. Tickets will be available from www.iamgiant.com and www.ticketmaster.co.nz (Auckland only) from 9am Friday 9th May.

Science & Survival is the highly anticipated follow up to I Am Giant’s Gold selling debut THE HORRIFYING TRUTH. Recorded between France and London, mixed in Melbourne, and mastered in New York Science & Survival is a true international effort. Co-produced by Forrester Saville (Karnivool, Dead Letter Circus, Helmut), bassist Paul Matthews and drummer Shelton Woolright, the album features the first two singles RAZOR WIRE REALITY and DEATH OF YOU – The video of which you can watch here.

With the album also being released in Germany, Poland, UK, Australia and Indonesia, bassist Paul Matthews says of Science & 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 Zealand”.

Hand picked to play on the Red Bull Track Tour in Berlin this year I Am Giant have just been announced to perform at Orange Warsaw Festival in Poland alongside Bring Me The Horizon and Limp Bizkit , Outkast, Snoop Dogg and Queens of the Stone Age. With their recent tour of Germany and the UK complete, including a spot on UK’s Are You Listening Festival, the band will be sure to bring their intense energy to home crowds this winter.

I Am Giant’s previous album THE HORRIFYING TRUTH was a #2 NZ Top 40 Album, it was also certified gold and featured 4 #1 Rock Airplay singles.
