LA Alt-Rockers GIANT DRAG Announce Farewell 2013 UK Tour Dates
A few months after front woman Annie Hardy made the surprise announcement that cult lo-fi LA alt-rockers GIANT DRAG would self-release their long awaited sophomore LP "Waking Up Is Hard To Do" through Full Psycho Records, GIANT DRAG have announced they will be heading to the UK in September 2013 for their farewell tour.
“Charlotte Froom and Tennesse Thomas from The Like will be helping me to reform GD for a select few shows to promote the record and say goodbye to the band properly so I can concentrate on my new project Annie Hardy and the Psychos as well as my pet project PnP who will also be finishing up recording EPs with Joe Cardamone of The Icarus Line.”
New record Waking Up Is Hard To Do received raved reviews from press and stomps, grooves and melts to a blissed out climax in all the right places, serving as an honest and timely reminder that sometimes after a fall, great talent just needs time to collect and take stock before it can breathe again.
Don’t miss out on your last chance to catch a beguiling underground artist doing what she does best with Giant Drag: “Basically flying by the seat of my pants” Annie smiles “for the first time in a while.”
Festival and European dates also TBA.
