GIANT ROOKS are set to release their much-anticipated second EP, WILD STARE, on 19th April on Virgin Records. They will be playing a set of 7 UK dates in support of the release, including headline shows at Manchester’s Gorilla, Bristol’s Louisiana and London’s Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen.
Still in their early 20’s and with a sound that is crossing European borders with ease, their brand of indie has broken out of Germany through a combination of intense live shows and the incredible quality of songs.
Heralded as one of the most outstanding newcomers to come from Germany in many a year, with WILD STARE they showcase their musical spectrum, exuberant talent and infectious serenity.
