Nashville, Tennessee cosmic stoner metal trio HOWLING GIANT has revealed the title track from their sophomore full-length "Glass Future", which is scheduled for a release on October 27, 2023 via Magnetic Eye Records. The pre-sale is available at THIS LOCATION! The second single 'Glass Future' comes in the shape of a high energy performance video, that is now streaming here:

HOWLING GIANT comment on the single: "The frenetic energy of 'Glass Future' is part of the overarching theme of our new record", guitarist and singer Tom Polzine elaborates. "We've dabbled in apocalyptic songs through a scifi or fantasy lens in the past, but wanted to explore those themes in a more immediate way this time. Like the angel falling in the song: the world is fragile, don't drop it."

Every song on HOWLING GIANT's sophomore album "Glass Future" tells its own story. Yet even without an overarching concept, all could exist within the same universe. Such crafty lyrical world-building is hardly surprising coming from a trio of enthusiastic fantasy and science fiction aficionados. "Glass Future" downright asks to inspire a book or graphic novel, even as it explodes with furious energy and thunderous acrobatics.


Musically, "Glass Future" offers a continuation and evolution of all the elements that made the debut album "The Space Between Worlds" (2019) such a success. HOWLING GIANT entice classic metal and hard rock to interact dynamically with spacy, prog-infused passages, desert and psychedelic metal moments, rock organs, catchy hooks, and top everything off with soaring harmonized vocals.


HOWLING GIANT hail from one of the most legendary places for music on earth: Nashville, Tennessee, USA. Despite the city's reputation for assembly-line pop country, the town called Music City is a place of deep history, where brilliant songwriters and virtuoso session players keep dozens of musical legacies burning bright. Fertile ground, then, for a preeminent fuzz-psych power trio who consciously live in the pocket of that lineage.


Following a trilogy of EPs, "Howling Giant" (2015), "Black Hole Space Wizard: Part 1" (2016), and "Black Hole Space Wizard: Part 2" (2017), HOWLING GIANT delivered their debut full-length "The Space between Worlds" in 2019, which to the delight of their rapidly growing following and critics alike more than fulfilled the promise of the early releases.


To bridge the time until their new album, the trio released the "Masamune & Muramasa" split with Sergeant Thunderhoof in 2020 and the "Alteration" EP in 2021, the first releases with bassist Sebastian Baltes, the son of German metal legends ACCEPT's former bass player Peter Baltes, fully integrated into the band as a co-writer.


HOWLING GIANT take a gargantuan leap forward with "Glass Future" that brings their outstanding musicianship and golden-throated triple vocal attack fully into stride. Nothing to do but try to keep up and enjoy the stunning sonic scenery along the way!
