King Giant Finishes New Album "Dismal Hollow"

Taking the dark tales of Appalachian folk forefathers to contemporary Southern doom territory, Northern Virgina-based quintet King Giant has wrapped up the final details on the band's sophomore full-length release, "Dismal Hollow," and is preparing to self-release it just after the kickoff of the new year. A press release from the band's publicist reads as follows:

"Brooding even darker and more sinister homage to their rock and metal forefathers than their heralded self-released 2009 debut album, Southern Darkness, this new album sets a new par for KING GIANT, further developing their hard but harmonized style, as always chock full of well-written hooks and deep grooving thunder. Recorded at Inner Ear Studio (Minor Threat, Fugazi, Avail, Jawbox, Dave Grohl), and inherently boasting full-on Americana both musically and conceptually, the eight tracks harnessed on Dismal Hollow are easily King Giant’s most well-written and monstrous anthems captured to date."

"Dismal Hollow" will be available worldwide on January 31st, 2012 -- a split release between King Giant’s band-operated imprint Graveyard Hill Records and The Path Less Traveled Records, part of the MRI Group, with distribution by RED, Code 7 and Plastichead -- and will be available in CD, LP, and digital download formats. The cover artwork is available below, and the track listing is as follows:

1. Appomattox
2. Tale Of Mathias
3. A Steward's Prayer
4. Pistols And Penance
5. 6 O'Clock Swill
6. The Fog
7. Road To Eleusis
8. O' Drifter

A video for the album’s opening track, "Appomattox," will debut in December 2011, along with more tunes from "Dismal Hollow," as well as new live dates and much more from King Giant throughout 2012.
