Giant Walker are a Heavy Progressive Rock band from Newcastle (via Guildford), consisting of Steff, Jamie, Jordan and Alex.
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 debut album, "All In Good Time" features themes of self-isolation and a dystopian reality. Sweeping you up in a conceptual journey, from giant riffs to melancholic melodies, and ambient soundscapes it was 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.
The album was released in May 2022 and picked up a two-page spread as Metal Hammer's ‘New Noise’, along with a multitude of reviews and features in a variety of respected publications and platforms, including the Daily Express, Sunday Sport, Prog Magazine, Planet Rock, BBC, Rolling Stone, and others. Following the album launch, Giant Walker went on to sell out multiple dates on their first UK headline tour, shortly followed by further runs - co-headlining with fast-rising metal outfit, Hawxx, and supporting heavy prog quartet, Boss Keloid.
In celebration of the 1 year anniversary of 'All in Good Time', Giant Walker have released a live album, 'Live at Anarchy'. Giant Walker are set to tour the UK again this summer, supporting Black Orchid Empire.
