Giant Squid To Begin Recording In August

San Francisco/Sacramento, California-based band GIANT SQUID will heading into the studio this August to record their upcoming album, "The Ichthyologist."

Guitarist/singer AARON GREGORY provides the update:

"Hey everyone, it’s been a long time since Giant Squid has delivered some news, but we’ve got a lot coming your way over the next month or two, so thanks for all the people who’ve been checking up on us to make sure we’re still slithering about in some capacity or another.

"For now, the most important news is that we’ve put down our deposit to secure highly sought after producer, Matt Bayles (ISIS, Mastodon, Botch, Pearl Jam, Minus the Bear) to engineer and produce our next record entitled, The Ichthyologist. We’ll be heading to Los Angeles to record from August 10 – 16, and to mix from September 12-16. Matt Bayles is hands down one of our favorite producers of all time. We’ve worshiped albums like Oceanic, Leviathan, The Perfect is the Enemy of the Good, and We Are The Romans, having listened to them countless times. It’s always been a huge aspiration of ours to work with him so to finally do so is very exciting on so many levels.

"The Ichthyologist will be grand in scale, with ten full songs, and will the be the first recording of original material Giant Squid has done with full time cellist/vocalist, Jackie Perez Gratz (Grayceon, Amber Asylum), and will also feature new drummer, Chris Lyman, from San Francisco’s rock heroes, Turn Me On Dead Man (Alternative Tentacles).

"Giant Squid will be performing with their new line up and showcasing some new songs at their upcoming San Francisco show with The Ocean, Intronaut, and Lair Of The Minotaur, June 14th at Annie’s Social Club.

"Orange amplifiers, Knucklehead guitar strings, and Matt Raines custom seven-string guitars have also recently officially endorsed Giant Squid. Austin based, jazz guitar virtuoso, Matt Raines, has made an unbelievable semi-hollow, seven-string, baritone guitar for me, which has all sorts of little design elements paying homage to the large seven-gill sharks I work and swim with daily at San Francisco’s, Aquarium of the Bay. Check out his other instruments as well as his monster guitar playing at mattraines.com.

"One last thing, the very limited, colored vinyl, 7” split release with Giant Squid and Grayceon, featuring the explosive, never before released song, “Sutter’s Fort”, is still available at theendrecords.com, so get one before they’re gone like the gold in Placer County!!

"News about things with teeth in creeks coming very soon! Till then, thanks everyone!"
