The Giant Rooks are spreading their wings! With a brand new single out last week off the EP to be released on the 20th January, the Giant Rooks are also heading out on their first ever headlining tour.

After 2016 spent gathering plenty of live experience with a swathe of over 30 festival appearances including Haldern, c/o Pop and Feel Festival), with a bunch of support gigs for people like Kraftklub, Razz and Joris – as well as sharing the stage with The Temper Trap and Von Wegen Lisbeth among others –  they’re ready to go. Giant Rooks also won the popNRW Prize for the best Newcomer Band.

A gruff and powerful voice from the singer that puts you straight in mind of AnnenMayKantereit

New Estate, their first single off the EP, shows off their talents: apart from a gruff and powerful voice from the singer that puts you straight in mind of AnnenMayKantereit and a tight little band that you only get from a bunch of teenage friends who’ve spent countless hours and days in rehearsal rooms, Giant Rooks come packing a heavy one-two-three of indierock, folk and electro, mxiing up powerhouse songwriting with danceable hooks.
