Pimmit Hills, Virginia-based doomsters KING GIANT have just unveiled their new performance-based video. The second video from their 2009-released Southern Darkness full-length, this brand new visual portrayal of the track “Solace” was filmed at Washington D.C.’s infamous 9:30 Club, and portrays the band boasting their soulful Southern rock in a thunderous live setting. The video was produced by Kevin Barker and Double Kick Productions, who also produced the first video from Southern Darkness, for the track “13 To 1”, released last September.
View both the brand new “Solace” video as well as the previously-released “13 To 1” video here:
After self-releasing Southern Darkness in mid 2009, KING GIANT are now proud to announce the 12″ vinyl version of the release! Also being self-released by the band, via their own Graveyard Hill Records imprint, the massive album is available in two color schemes [oxblood, and oxblood with gold/silver splatter], both pressed on quality 180-gram wax, bound in a deluxe gatefold setup, and including a free digital download card of the album as well. More details and ordering info is available via http://www.kinggiant.com now.
KING GIANT are in pre-production of their next album now. Few details are available as of now, but the album title is confirmed as Dismal Hollow, and the band will begin recording in March for a release date later this Summer to be announced soon. KING GIANT played at the State Theatre in Falls Church, Virginia last week where they previewed a bit of the new material for the first time, and were actually joined on stage by doom legend Victor Griffin (Pentagram, Place of Skulls) to take part in the band’s cover of Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “The Needle And The Spoon.”
More widespread touring and live appearances are imminent for the remainder of 2011; more details will be announced as they are confirmed throughout the year. Worldwide, contact Earsplit PR to cover KING GIANT. Interviews are always available.
“…melodies and atmosphere inhabit that common ground among Alice In Chains, Eyehategod and Hank III. The album title is apt.” – Decibel Magazine
“Unhealthy, doom-tinged southern filth.” – Terrorizer Magazine
“If Backwoods Payback, Earthride, Crowbar, Beaten Back to Pure and Down’s Nola, speak directly to your soul, then you’ll be doing back flips over Southern Darkness. This is riff after riff of gruff, Sabbath leaned southern-metal, with arrangements and vocals bathed from head to toe in soothing, sourmash sauce.” – Hellride Music
“If Johnny Cash rose from the grave and started a metal band this is what it might sound like. Folks, this is some serious shit.” – Heavy Planet
