Giant Killers have debuted a music video for their single “When This Time is Over,” off their EP of the same name, released on May 24th. Shot live at the Teddy Rocks Festival in Dorset in May 2024, this video, the first from Giant Killers in 28 years, mixes live performance footage from the main stage, with multiple cameo appearances from festival goers front of stage, and adds in friends and fellow performers from the backstage areas – the overall result feels at once exultant and bitter-sweet in its celebration of the power of friendship and good times marked against the passage of time.

The live footage was a one-song-only special dispensation from the festival organizers as the band were there as gigging musicians to play in other bands during the festival weekend – a unique charity event in which all profits raise money for kids with cancer. As you can see – the Giant Killers went down very well and are now anticipating their first full gig major festival appearance at Shine On in November.

The guys comment:

“We believe the album is a work about universal and timeless themes. Our 3 decades long wish is to see if the rest of the world agrees with us, and we’ve been taken aback by all the superlatives heaped upon our music…

“We’re now committed to a string of single releases throughout 2024 starting with, ‘When This Time is Over’. The song has a great back story; it was the first one we wrote as Giant Killers, and it was written on a guitar owned by Butch Vig. The guitar was in the safe keeping of our mate Simon Gunning, the artist manager who looked after Vig’s later incarnation as Garbage. We knocked around Simon’s office after business hours because we lived in relative poverty in an empty office down the corridor and his place was well… warmer. We’d seen Butch playing that guitar so often when he visited Simon on business, we picked it up in the hope his magic might rub off from his fingers and onto our musical endeavors.”

The indie-pop band are song writing duo Jamie Wortley (guitar, keys, lead vocals) and Michael Brown (bass, keys, brass, vocals). They were signed to MCA Records in 1995 where they released two singles, however the album never saw the light of day. Now the band have their rights back, and the songs are finally getting their chance to shine…
