Below is our complete Giant news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
North Carolina's GIANT has announced that they intend to move forward under the moniker BRAVEYOUNG. The band comments:
"To avoid inevitable legal repercussions, we have decided to stop using the name Giant. Braveyoung will be the name we now collectively function under. Nothing is changing, we are still the same band, but this has been a long time coming, and we are finally confident enough to go forward with it. It's only a name."
2009 promises to be a big year for the band, who will soon be releasing a 10-inch entitled "Bloom." Later in the year, the band will release a full-length followup to their 2005 debut, "Song." Details surrounding both releases are forthcoming.
“Braveyoung, like Giant, is only a moniker,” explains Zachary. “If we could, we would call ourselves ‘Zachary Isaac Ben Derrick Kyle,’ but I suppose it doesn’t work that way.”
As for the immediate future, BRAVEYOUNG has a two-week tour with Advent and Torch Runner coming up in early February and shortly following that will come an announcement concerning a full US with Tides.
“We just like to play,” confesses Zachary, “and don’t really think about much else. As with any other form of expression, it is and will continue to be a constantly growing and evolving process. If it wasn’t, there’d be no point in us continuing on.”
