THE NAKED AND FAMOUS ANNOUNCE NEW SINGLE ‘I KILL GIANTS’ RELEASED DECEMBER 2ND The New Zealand quintet today announce the release of new single ‘I Kill Giants’ out December 2nd through Fiction Records (Universal). This is the second single from their critically acclaimed September released album ‘In Rolling Waves’. Driven forward by distorted guitars, stuttering keyboards and mammoth vocal hooks, ‘I Kill Giants’ is an electro-rocker of epic proportions. It follows on from the album’s much lauded debut single ‘Hearts Like Ours’ which featured as Zane Lowe’s ‘Hottest Record In The World’ on Radio 1. The band are currently on an extensive North American tour before they hit European soil for a string of shows in early November. The band’s UK and Ireland tour will kick off on November 21st at the Manchester Ritz before taking in Birmingham’s HMV Institute, Norwich’s UEA, Dublin’s Olympia, Belfast’s Limelight, Glasgow’s ABC, Bristol’s O2 Academy, Oxford’s O2 Academy and finally two consecutive nights at Shepherds Bush Empire on December 1st and 2nd. Tickets are available at www.thenakedandfamous.com/tour. Full tour dates below. Released in September, ‘In Rolling Waves’ won the band rave reviews. NME described it as ‘epic, wide-eyed and unashamedly massive', the Guardian said "it couldn't sound more audaciously epic if it rode around on a lightning bolt without any underwear" and Line of Best Fit heralded the record as 'a glorious return'. Written at their home in Laurel Canyon, Los Angeles, ‘In Rolling Waves’ was produced by singer Thom Powers and keyboardist Aaron Short and also credits Justin Meldal-Johnsen (M83, Beck and NIN) with co-production on two tracks. Alan Moulder mixed the album at his Assault and Battery Studio in London.
