Shadow Giant Sign to Argonauta Records; New Album Later This Year

Not trying to be telling tales or anything, but I can’t be the only one who’s noticed that Louisiana’s Shadow Giant sign to Argonauta Records pretty recently behind New York’s Shadow Witch. Now, they’re totally different bands, with Shadow Giant dug into a bluesy workingman’s heavy rock and roll and Shadow Witch offering some more ethereal vibe to go with their own thick-toned riffery, but I mean, you’ve got two Shadow bands signed in rapid succession. Seems to me you’ve got the makings there of one shadowy-as-hell tour. Or maybe the US will finally get its own Argonauta Fest. Label head Gero Lucisano has to have enough American acts at this point to make that happen. If not, I’m sure there are one or two left looking for a deal. Ha.

Kudos to Shadow Giant on the signing, either way, and in joining the good company of Argonauta‘s ever-expanding roster, both with Shadow Witch and a ton of others domestic and international. The four-piece will reportedly have a new album out this year to follow-up 2017’s Honkytonk on the Moon, which you can stream below.

Shadow Giant – NEW DEAL!

We are proud to welcome a new member to our family and high class artist roster, as psychedelic doom blues rockers SHADOW GIANT have inked a worldwide deal with us!

Formed in 2015 in the greasy kitchen of a southern Louisiana bar & grill, SHADOW GIANT is a band to be experienced. It might be accurate to categorize them as a “stoner rock” band, but that description is too flat and one-dimensional.

Their skill as a band, and the individual contribution of each member creates not only a cohesive whole but also a collective emotion that transcends the genre completely. Their energy and emotional authenticity of their work makes you hover a bit with excitement. They have all of the best qualities of the modern bands like Kyuss, Fu Manchu and Clutch, but they also seem to recall a mystical allegiance to 70’s southern bluesy rockers such as The Allman Brothers and Golden Earring while exuding the sexy swagger of glam rockers like T-Rex.

SHADOW GIANT released their critically acclaimed debut album ‘Honkytonk On The Moon’ on Graven Earth Records in 2017, and will be following up with their anticipated, sophomore album on Argonauta Records during 2019.

Shadow Giant is:
J. Harrison-Guitar/Vocals
David Carroll-Drums
Byron Daniel-Guitar/Vocals
Tim Weaver-Bass
