Giant Squid Taking a Breather This Fall, Vinyl Forthcoming
"The elusive beast known as Giant Squid is taking a little breather after an exhausting national tour last August in support of 'The Ichthyologist,'" singer/guitarist Aaron Gregory told Noisecreep. Gregory also said the band will be playing some local shows in their native California around the holidays over the next few months.
Also, Gregory is actually a student at the Joe Kubert School of Graphic Art, which he described as a "three-year boot camp for comic book artists" located in Dover, N.J. "Since I've arrived, I've been piecing together parts of 'Cenotes,' the near-20-minute-long, Middle Eastern and Spanish sounding epic that will accompany our sister band, Grayceon, on a split 12-inch coming out in the summer." The split will be released via Translation Loss, which also issued 'The Ichthyologist.'
"It will continue on with the 'The Ichthyologist' mythos," Gregory said about the split. "We're all waiting anxiously for the vinyl double LP version of 'The Ichthyologist' to land any day now from Vega Vinyl. Copies are going fast, so order now if you want one. They're incredible looking."
