Chicago’s GIGAN are set to enter the studio next month to begin tracking a new album. Recording will take place at Big Bad Sound in Los Angeles, CA with Sanford Parker (Brutal Truth, Tombs) engineering. The album will hit streets later this year via Willowtip Records.
The band comments: “Due to some boring contract stuff, it took longer than usual to get back in the studio but all has been sorted out and now the gates to the Gigan universe will be opened again! As usual, the future is bright with lots of exciting things on the way! Album title, art, songs, merch and tours will all be announced periodically through the rest of the Spring/Summer, so stay tuned!”
GIGAN is the brain-child of founding member; multi-instrumentalist and lyric/conceptual mastermind Eric Hersemann. GIGAN’s existence began a decade ago in 2005, after Hersemann’s stints in Tampa, FL’s Diabolic and Hate Eternal. Prior to that, Eric’s time was spent sharpening his blades in his hometown of Chicago, IL with the likes of Chicago legends Burnt Offering and Death-Thrash innovators Lord Blasphemer. After writing, recording and releasing GIGAN’s “Footsteps of GIGAN” demo and the first two GIGAN albums (Order of the False Eye on Napalm Records and Quasi-Hallucinogenic Sonic Landscapes on Willowtip Records) in Tampa, Eric relocated to his roots in Chicago and began the writing process for GIGAN’s most recent, critically acclaimed masterwork : “Multi-Dimensional Fractal Sorcery and Super-Science”.
