Smoke Notes

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 fueled 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), bassist Paul Matthews (formerly of Auckland outfits Stylus and Tadpole) and veteran guitar-slinger Aja Timu, the last to join the I.A.G. line-up.

"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 album also includes all three of I Am Giant's hit singles from their 2010 'City Limits' EP -- "City Limits", "Neon Sunrise" and "Living The Crash" -- all of which hit the top two spots on The Rock FM's national airplay charts, and have had combined sales in excess of 15,000, 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.
