Commenting on the new video and developments in their galactic takeover, the band states:
“Our friend Jackson Miller is a master animator and one-man wrecking crew, and has been working on this sick video for lead track “Comet Rider” from our album ‘The Space Between Worlds,’ released last year through Blues Funeral Recordings. We’re excited to finally be able to share it with the good people of Earth!
We’ve also been keeping busy during the pandemic. We recorded a concept split album with Sergeant Thunderhoof from the UK, scheduled to hit shelves on August 7th through Ripple Music. [Guitarist/Vocalist] Tom did a Rig Rundown with Premier Guitar, and we recorded a live video for Comet Rider from our Corona-Bunker. We’ve started writing a bunch of new music, and while we don’t have a date set for a new album, it’s been awesome to get to devote so much time to some fresh hot tracks. And we have two covers coming early this Fall through Magnetic Eye’s Redux series, a cover of Alice In Chains’ Rooster and our version of Black Sabbath’s Lord of this World. Doing our best to keep the riffs flowing!”

In case it was missed, watch the band’s official video for “Cybermancer and the Doomsday Express” here:
HOWLING GIANT blast forth a cosmic convergence of pulpy sci-fi themes and blistering psych-metal. Across numerous tours and festival appearances, three EPs and their first full album, the trio harness heavily nuanced progressive riff-rock complemented by otherworldly storytelling and the enduring message that the universe in which we live could stand to loosen up. They deliver this message from stages far and wide as often as possible.
The Space Between Worlds is a concept album that follows the story of a huntress who travels the infinite metaphysical worlds brought into being by the dreams of humankind. In these realms, she encounters a dream eater which threatens to unravel the fabric of reality by devouring dreamers and destroying the dimensional gateways.
Made up of Tom Polzine (guitar/vocals) and Zach Wheeler (drums/vocals) with the recent addition of Sebastian Baltes (bass/vocals), the band has expanded their already impressive vocal harmony approach with the addition of a third voice. Friend of the band Drew Harakal adds extra sonic textures to the album with his organ and synth skills. And Jason Shi of ASG appears with a guest vocal cameo on the track “Ice Castle.”
Highlighting the band’s tremendous musical prowess and versatility, The Space Between Worlds is a warp trail of heavy rock and roll so weird it can only be called progressive, giving space to every sonic weapon in the band’s arsenal, and all bound by the album’s central concept and the members’ towering musicianship.
