Official press release:

Willowtip Records is extremely pleased to announce the signing of the psychedelic extreme metal band GIGAN. GIGAN is set to enter the studio this fall to record their second full-length album entitled Quasi-Hallucinogenic Sonic Landscapes. The recording will once again take place in Chicago, IL at Semaphore studios with engineer Sanford Parker (Nachtmystium, Minsk, Buried at Sea). Some early song titles include “Mountains Perched Like Beasts Awaiting the Attack," "Suspended In Cubes of Torment" and "In the Tentacled Grasp of a Buried Behemoth." The album will be available on both vinyl LP and CD, allowing the listener to fully appreciate the subtle nuances of the GIGAN Universe. Featuring the same boundary-pushing extremity but also some new elements, instruments and approaches to delivery, Quasi-Hallucinogenic Sonic Landscapes will surprise and delight both new and original GIGAN devotees.

Main songwriter/lyricist Eric Hersemann offers his comments: "Signing with Willowtip marks a new era within the GIGAN Universe! Willowtip has the right idea when it comes to Metal and they understand and support the lofty creative goals I have with GIGAN. With all the hard work and touring the band has done over the past two years in support of The Order of the False Eye, GIGAN is definitely ready to overtake the mortal universe with our next offering! I have taken extra time to craft a mesmerizing work that pushes the boundaries of extreme music, songwriting and imagination. This is my best work to date and all of us in GIGAN look forward to another run of tours to showcase this new vision!"

GIGAN will be hitting the road again in late Winter/early Spring 2011. Tour dates as well as the official street date and cover art will be released in the coming months.
