GIANT, die US-Hardrocker rund um den neuen Sänger Kent Hilli (Perfect Plan), präsentieren am 21. Januar 2022 ihr fünftes Studioalbum “Shifting Time”. Die zweite Auskopplung daraus ‚Never Die Young‘ gibt es im Clip. Der Track wurde von Ex-Mitglied Dann Huff an der Leadgitarre gestaltet, der aber nicht im Video mitwirken konnte. Zuvor wurde bereits der Song ‚Let Our Love Win‚ enthüllt.
David Huff über das neue Album:
„We are very excited for people to hear „Shifting Time“! It has been way too long in between Giant albums and we hope you find it worth the wait. Thanks to everyone at Frontiers and especially the fans for their undying support of Giant!! We would love to follow up with some live dates in 2022, if that is something the fans would like to see, so hopefully we’ll see you out there!“
Und Kent Hilli über seinen neuen Job:
”Wow, man, what can I say? To be asked to be the new singer for my all-time favorite band Giant was, and still is, mind-blowing! I still have a hard time grasping it all. I am tempted to use a certain film quote („You know, I’m just a regular guy who grew up with the posters of these guys on my wall…and now I’m one of them! That’s right, I’m standing here, living proof that if you work hard enough, and you want it bad enough…dreams do come true, so follow your dreams.”), but I won’t, haha. But seriously, that is exactly how I feel. I still remember hearing Giant’s first album, ”Last Of The Runaways”, in 1989 which totally blew me off the chair I was sitting on. Since then, I have probably listened to their music every week. And now working with David, Mike, John, and also Alessandro has been a blessing and I am very proud of the album and the music we have created together. These guys are true professionals and I am blessed beyond words to be a part of this and David, Mike, and John have been so supportive and welcoming. I am also very grateful to Frontiers for making this happen and giving me and us this opportunity and I can’t wait to release the songs for everyone to hear”
