Giant Walker are a Heavy Progressive Rock band from Newcastle, UK, 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.
Written during the 2020 lockdown, their debut album, "All In Good Time" 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.
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 their album launch, Giant Walker sold out multiple dates on their first UK headline tour, shortly followed by further runs - co-headlining with Hawxx, and supporting both Boss Keloid and Black Orchid Empire on their album launch tours.
In celebration of the 1 year anniversary of 'All in Good Time', Giant Walker released a live album, 'Live at Anarchy'.
Giant Walker are currently working on their next release.
