Giant Killers Unveil Long-Awaited Debut Album 'Songs For The Small Places'

After nearly three decades of anticipation, indie-pop sensation Giant Killers has finally unveiled their debut album, 'Songs For The Small Places'. The album, released digitally on 26th January through Little Genius Recordings, marks a triumphant moment for the band, bringing their long-lost music into the spotlight. Notably, at least £2 of every sale through Bandcamp will be dedicated to the suicide prevention charity Campaign Against Living Miserably.

Comprising the talented songwriting duo Jamie Wortley (guitar, keys, lead vocals) and Michael Brown (bass, keys, brass, vocals), Giant Killers had signed with MCA Records in 1995. While they released two singles during that time, the album remained shelved until now. Reclaiming their rights, the band is excited to present 'Songs For The Small Places' to a world that has changed significantly since the '90s.

The album encapsulates the timeless influence of the '90s sound, a period that continues to resonate within today's music scene. Giant Killers' melodic tunes, laced with gritty lyrics and a fusion of guitar and old-school synth riffs, promise to captivate music enthusiasts across generations.

In a heartfelt statement, Jamie and Michael expressed their hope that the album would finally receive the recognition it deserves: "What we’re hopeful for, after a long journey to bring them into the light, is that these songs will finally reach the ears of the discerning listener and be given a fair chance to be loved, or otherwise, on their artistic and creative merit. We believe that 'Songs for the Small Places' is a work about universal and timeless themes. Our three-decade-long wish is to see if the rest of the world agrees with us."

Giant Killers' journey has been filled with notable experiences, having opened for Blur on their Country House tour, toured with Dr. Robert (Blow Monkeys) and Nick Heyward, and even graced the stages of Glastonbury twice and Proms in the Park in Hyde Park, opening for the legendary Lionel Richie. Their versatility is showcased by tours with Squeeze and support for Motown icon Edwin Starr.
