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. Written during the 2020 lockdown, their upcoming album features themes of self isolation and a dystopian reality. 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. Recorded, mixed and mastered by Chris Coulter (Arcane Roots, Jamie Lenman) at the Ranch and Stakeout Studios, 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 is released on Friday 13th May 2022. Previous singles ‘The Fact in Fiction’, ‘Past The Peak’ ‘Left To Wreck’ ‘Katoomba’ and ‘Optophobia’ 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, Music Gateway, Metal Sucks, Total Rock Radio (single of the week), GigRadar, The Faction, Heavy Magazine, Distortion Radio, Rock Meeting, Moshville Times, Deezer, ERB Magazine, TIDAL, Distorted Sound Magazine, Banks Radio, Ollie Winiberg’s Heavy Hooks, Narc Magazine, and many other respected publications and platforms.

Vocalist Steff Fish shares how she’s so excited for the eventual release of their debut album. She explains, “The majority of the songs on the album we’ve had written for nearly two years now. Whilst we obviously didn’t anticipate that we’d be waiting so long to release it, the delay in a lot of ways has been a blessing in disguise because it forced us to make sure that we were 100% behind every part of it with no compromises. We’re so happy with every single song – they’ve almost taken on their own personality and each one brings something slightly different to the album sonically. Whilst the current music industry is very focused on singles, we’ve personally always loved being immersed in an album from start to finish, and so this was something we were very keen to capture with our first release.”
