Giant Walker are a Heavy Progressive Rock band from Newcastle, UK. After individually relocating 300 miles to further develop their craft, the Geordie quartet was coincidentally born in the South, bound together by their northern heritage and a shared love for bands such as Karnivool, Soundgarden, Radiohead and Deftones. Their music captures the many lows of loneliness and tips a hat to the music that gets you through hard times; sweeping you up in a conceptual journey, from giant riffs to melancholic melodies, and ambient soundscapes. Giant Walker have stitched together a sound, woven from the fabric of their influences, that can’t be found elsewhere.
Giant Walker’s debut album ‘All In Good Time’ is a captivating sonic experience that delivers everything from thunderous riffs and neck-breaking grooves, to epic ambience and dark anthems. The album picked up coverage with the likes of Daily Express, Sunday Sport, Rolling Stone, Metal Hammer, Planet Rock, BBC, Louder Sound/Prog Magazine, Classic Rock Magazine, Metal Sucks, Total Rock Radio (single of the week), Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, Pandora, TIDAL, Distorted Sound Magazine, and many other respected publications and platforms. Following the release of their debut album “All In Good Time”, Giant Walker have created an acoustic reimagining of the finale “Coda”. This brand new version features a stripped-back approach from Vocalist Steff Fish & Guitarist Jamie Southern, and pays homage to the initial idea for the track.
Vocalist Steff Fish explains, “As the idea originally came about acoustic guitar, we always had in mind that we’d create an acoustic version.” She continues, “The song is quite climactic and haunting; lyrically it revolves around the world falling apart and being so overwhelmed that you just stand and watch as everything crumbles. Yeah, you know the storm is coming but you’re still just sailing along anyway and hoping it’ll be okay. And in the end, we’re so small in this universe so it kind of doesn’t matter anyway, and there’s a peace about that.”
