Giant Squid Sign With The End Records

Northern California's GIANT SQUID have inked a deal with The End Records.

GIANT SQUID garnered the attention of eclectic indie-metal label The End Records with their self-released first album, "Metridium Field", engineered by legendary veteran producer of heavy music, Billy Anderson (NEUROSIS, MELVINS, HIGH ON FIRE, MR. BUNGLE). This original release, featuring the concussion-inducing beats of legendary Sacramento drummer Jason Divencenzo (RED TAPE), will be fully re-mixed with added vocals and instrumentation by Billy Anderson, and then re-released in a beautiful new digipak highlighting the original cover art of Aurielle Gregory.

Any fan of artistically intelligent and organically heavy indie-rock music, in the vein of ISIS, SONIC YOUTH, PLEASURE FOREVER, BLACK HEART PROCESSION, TARANTULA HAWK, MY BLOODY VALENTINE, PELICAN, MOGWAI, ULVER, NEUROSIS, TARENTAL, HIGH ON FIRE, or classic rock and punk like BLACK SABBATH and the SUBHUMANS, should appreciate the band's worship of guitar overdrive, somber interludes, and tide-like build ups.

GIANT SQUID lineup:

Andy Southard (keyboard, vocals, pants)
Mike Conroy (drums, theories)
Aurielle Gregory (guitar, vocals, wife)
Bryan Beeson (bass, final fantasy)
Aaron Gregory (guitar, vocals, husband)
