Screaming Giants are an innovative and energetic four-piece alternative/stoner rock band from Dublin, Ireland, founded in 2013. The band recorded their debut EP, Found Footage in Red Lake Sound Studios (Mother Mooch, Shag Haired Villains) in early 2016, releasing it in August of the same year. The EP was launched to a large crowd in Fibber Magees in Dublin. Found Footage was well-received in press reviews both local and national and went on to sell to fans as far away as Finland and the United States.
Recently the band recorded a new single in Westland Studios (Weezer, Placebo) which is currently being mixed by Alwyn Walker and is due for a winter release. The song will feature on the band’s next EP, due to be completed in early 2018.
The band’s atmospheric and energetic live shows have drawn praise among music press. Notable shows include the Black Sabbath aftershow in Fibber Magees, which the band headlined to a full house, the Clutch aftershow in the same venue, and supporting Versive in the Hangar in Dublin.
With the release of their next EP, the band are aiming to expand their local and national fanbase and play bigger and better shows all around Ireland and the UK.
Screaming Giants are:
Hugh “Jazzer” Loughman – Lead vocals, bass
David McKinney – Lead guitar, backing vocals
Ryan Byrne – Rhythm guitar, backing vocals
Liam Kennedy - Drums
"Found Footage is a neat EP with a good mix of heavy rockers and slow burners."
"...there are more good tracks on here than most bands manage on a whole album and there is enough grinding riffage and ingenuity on Found Footage to promise greater things from future ventures."
