UK-based rockers make second Aussie visit for the year.

More I Am Giant More I Am Giant

New Zealand modern rockers I Am Giant have been based in the UK for quite some time now, taking the time to ingrain themselves in the European scene and, frankly, making a pretty damn good fist of it. Their debut record was released earlier this year and the band well and truly made themselves known as a more than worthy proposition on the live stage when they toured Australia on the back of it. The critically acclaimed release was produced by Forrester Savell and features a guest appearance from Dead Letter Circus frontman Kim Benzie, so that ought to give a you a fairly good idea of the musical ground that they cover.

The band return to Australian soil mid-year to tour on the back of the latest single from that record, Purple Heart, and you can catch them at the following shows:

Thursday 28 June – Amplifier, Perth
Saturday 30 June – X&Y Bar, Brisbane
Wednesday 4 July – Spectrum, Sydney
Thursday 5 July – Workers Club, Melbourne
Friday 6 July – Enigma Bar, Adelaide

Tickets are on sale from Friday morning.
