UK-based Rock Band to perform Free Admission Show at Hard Rock on July 9

JULY 9 (Monday) ● 9PM


On "The Horrifying Truth", I Am Giant have bound together what they describe as “a collection of stories, thoughts, observations and exploration” into one cohesive and hard-hitting explosion of sound and melody. From first song "Purple Heart" to closer "After The War", the sharp lyrical themes draw the listener into the band’s own experience of a growing awareness of mortality and the slow loss of innocence.

And yet, I Am Giant have produced an album fuelled by a youthful idealism, not despite but because of the hard learned lessons that are a reality of modern life. The Horrifying Truth is pure, unadulterated rock, with its heart on its sleeve and an unquenchable fire in its soul.

The London-based quartet is comprised of English vocalist Ed Martin, sticks-man Shelton Woolright (formerly of multi-platinum selling band Blindspott) and bassist Paul Matthews (formerly of Auckland outfits Stylus and Tadpole)

"And We’ll Defy" is the first single from I Am Giant’s much anticipated debut. Bassist Paul Matthews explains "‘And We'll Defy’ is a song about the human need to believe in and belong to something that can define and guide us and about how vulnerable and easily led we can become as a consequence."

The gold certified album also includes all five of I Am Giant’s hit singles "City Limits", "Neon Sunrise", "Living the Crash", "And We’ll Defy" and "Let It Go" all of which hit the top spots on The Rock FM’s national airplay charts not to mention videos featuring world surfing champion Kelly Slater, champion skater Tony Hawke and some of the world’s best extreme athletes.

"The Horrifying Truth" was recorded with acclaimed Australian alt-rock producer/engineer Forrester Savell between Sony Studios in Sydney, and Forrester’s studio at Sing Sing Studios in Melbourne between January and April 2011, and was co-produced by bassist Paul Matthews and drummer Shelton Woolright.

Live, the band are a force to be reckoned with, as countless audiences around the world can attest. From headlining sold-out NZ tours, Big Day Out Auckland and Sydney, and Homegrown, to Tiger Translate parties in Vietnam, Camden Barfly, Levi’s Hong Kong, Quiksilver World Pro Bali, Big Night In Singapore, Viper Room LA, Mercury Lounge New York, British Surf Champs and supporting Taking Back Sunday in the UK and Dead Letter Circus in Australia, I Am Giant have cut their teeth and tested their mettle on some of the world’s hottest stages.

I Am Giant will be performing for the first time in the Philippines this July! The band will be having a show at the Hard Rock Café in Glorietta, Makati on July 9 (Monday) at 9 PM. Imported copies of their album “The Horrifying Truth” will be sold at the entrance.
