That’s right! Everyone’s favourite early noughties throwbacks GIANTS OF SCIENCE are back to strike fear into the hearts of purveyors of false intelligent hard rock everywhere! They are playing the Troubadour, Brisbane on Friday 17th of April and head to Sydney the following day to headline the Annandale Hotel’s Tomorrow People mini festival on the 18th of April and then to Melbourne Sunday April 19 for a show at The Tote.


Giants of Science are one of Australia’s best kept musical secrets. Their patented combination of vicious intelligent hard rock, black humour & questionable fashion sense saw them garner supports for bands such as Radio Birdman, McClusky, MC3DKT, The Bellrays, Black Flag, A Perfect Circle, JSBX, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Powderfinger, Screamfeeder,Tumbleweed, Front End Loader, You Am I, and many others. TThey released two albums and two EPs up till 2007, toured Canada and Vanuatu, played the Big Day Out and Livid festivals, and a good deal of rum was on board throughout.


The Giants have have been on extended leave for two years whilst various members travelled to Europe, dossed about and worked as escorts in the Middle East. However the original line up of Ben Salter (vocals/guitar) Steven Lynagh (drums) Benjamin Tuite (guitar) and Matt Tanner (bass) is back, match fit, older, stupider, working on some new songs, and set to play a few shows before commencing work on their third full length album, tentatively entitled The Suburban Durban Bourbon Turban, due for release early 2010.
