I Am Gi­ant

Blunt - - Up Front -

Where are you from? We’re London based although the two found­ing mem­bers are Ki­wis. Who is in your band? Ed Martin ( vo­cals); Shel­ton Wool­right ( drums); Paul Matthews ( bass, gui­tar). Who are some of your in­flu­ences? Tom Petty, Pink Floyd, Soundgar­den, Faith No More, Deftones, Rage Against Ma­chine, Hel­met, ISIS, Quick­sand and Nir­vana. Where can we nor­mally find you play­ing? We travel a lot so take your pick. The UK, New Zealand, Ger­many, Poland and Aus­tralia are reg­u­lar tour­ing des­ti­na­tions for us. As we’re based in London you can nor­mally catch us there a few times a year. tell us about your best show. Prob­a­bly sup­port­ing Slash in Bris­bane in 2012. It was the first show of the tour and play­ing with some­one as iconic as Slash and hear­ing him play all of those GN’R clas­sics live was just awe­some. tell us about your worst show. We’ve blocked it out in a fire­ball of pos­i­tive en­ergy. tell us your three favourite bands. Pink Floyd, Soundgar­den and Deftones. tell us about your lat­est re­lease. It’s called Sci­ence & Sur­vival. It’s our sec­ond al­bum and it took us about nine months or so to record, which is twice as much time as it took us to record our first al­bum. We recorded it with For­rester Savell and he mixed it as well. He’s an amaz­ing en­gi­neer and mixer. This record has been a big step up for us in terms of song­writ­ing and sound qual­ity and we’re ec­static that it’s al­ready been get­ting some rave reviews from around the world and is fast be­ing picked up by ra­dio sta­tions around the globe. In com­par­i­son to our first record, Sci­ence & Sur­vival is a darker, mood­ier, heav­ier al­ter­na­tive rock al­bum. We’re so pleased with how it has turned out. Slayer or me­tal­lica? Me­tal­lica all day long.
