Video Premiere: Giant Walker – “Optophobia”

Giant Walker are a heavy progressive Rock band from Newcastle, UK. We are in no way biased toward them due to them being from God’s Own Country. At all. Honest.

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 releases feature 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 release their second single “Optophobia” on 3rd December 2021. Their debut single, “The Fact in Fiction” saw them pick up coverage with the likes of Rolling Stone, Planet Rock, BBC, Louder Sound/Prog Magazine, Metal Sucks, Total Rock Radio, GigRadar, The Faction, Distortion Radio, Rock Meeting and many other respected publications. This new single kicks the intensity up a notch with a frantic sonic landscape and entrancing vocal melody that is both hypnotic and hazy.
