Dark The Giant gets its ass into gear after 22 years!

Here’s an interview with Dark The Giant, a band that’s toiled and suffered and worked their asses off in every kind of shitty situation for over two decades. Well… to be honest, I think they were busy or doing other things? (sorry, Keisuke!) But last year they got a human infusion of rock and roll called Masaya and now they’ve put out their first single on Stay Free Label. The interview was done by Tsune from Young Parisian and appeared in a Japanese punk rock magazine.

The band I’m talking about is Dark The Giant, a “rookie” band of 22 years that’s now, way too late, putting out its first single. The single features four scorching rock and roll tunes whose production was overseen by Firestarter’s Fifi. It’s a great first release that’s better late than never.
