I Am Giant to play @ The Basement in New Plymouth
Before I Am Giant head off to Australia and America, the band decided to sneak in a couple of extra New Zealand shows.
‘We were getting fans hitting us up on Facebook wanting us to play in their town, and since we had a weekend free before going overseas, we thought it would be a great thing to do !’ says drummer Shelton Woolright.
The gigs wraps up a few whirlwind months which have seen the band shoot a video featuring world surf champion Kelly Slater, recorded a live to air for XFM in the UK, complete a handful of London gigs, performed in Vietnam for Tiger Translate, fly to France to play at the opening of the new Quiksliver headquarters and tour New Zealand on the massively successful State of Rock tour.
I Am Giant’s first ever release, the ‘Neon Sunrise/City Limits EP’, recently debuted in the NZ singles chart at No 18 and is still in the Top 30. The EP will also be released later this year in Australia and Asia via Sony Records.
