One Inch Giant European Tour Starts Tonight

Posted in Whathaveyou on November 21st, 2013 by JJ Koczan

This evening — it’s probably already in progress, what with the hours they’re ahead; impossible to keep up — Gothenburg heavy rockers One Inch Giant will kick off their European tour in Copenhagen. The four-piece are out supporting the April 2013 release of their second full-length, The Great White Beyond, on Soulseller Records, and they’ll hit up a swath of European countries over the next nine days, winding up in Hungary after crossing borders back and forth between it, Germany and the Netherlands. Some pretty crazy routing on paper, but I’m sure it makes more sense once you’re actually making those drives. Or maybe not. I was never much for cartography.

One Inch Giant sent along word of the tour and dates for anyone who happens to be in that part of the world:

Greetings fellow rockers! Our European tour is closing in and we’re really stoked about getting out on the road, playing you songs from our new record!

This time we’ll pay Denmark, Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Hungary and Austria a visit.

These are the dates :

21 Nov (thu) – KB18 – Copenhagen, Denmark
22 Nov (fri) – Rathausbunker – Kiel, Germany
23 Nov (sat) – Café Mukkes – Leeuwarden, Netherlands
24 Nov (sun) – Gasolina – Waregem, Belgium

One Inch Giant Stream Track from New Album The Great White Beyond

Posted in Whathaveyou on March 4th, 2013 by JJ Koczan

Renewing their penchant for strong, accessible hooks and heavy rocking grooves, Swedish single-guitar four-piece One Inch Giant will release their Soulseller Records debut full-length, titled The Great White Beyond, on April 19 in Europe. The long-player follows the band’s 2011 Malva EP (short review here), which established a fuzz rock charm offset by touches of a more metallic influence.

Should be  interesting to hear how that balance might develop over the course of The Great White Beyond, and since the EP was enough to bring One Inch Giant over to the States for a run of shows (reviews here and here), I’m excited to see how the band works to get their name out for their first record. They’ve just released the first track from the album in the form of the catchy “Mountains Will Erode,” and seem to be gearing up for good things to come.

Here’s the song and a blurb grabbed from the label confirming the release date for the album:
