With the release of their new album just two months away, symphonic thrashers ICE GIANT have announced an upcoming run of tour dates in the US supporting the record. The Boston quartet will join forces with Atlanta prog-metal explorers Scorched Moon for nine shows in the month of September, beginning in their own hometown with a record release show at The Middle East on September 8th – see below for a complete list of dates!

Sharing their excitement about these late summer shows, the band comments:

“We are grateful beyond words to announce that we are touring the East Coast in September 2023 in celebration of our upcoming album, ‘Ghost of Humanity’. We’ve teamed up with our long-time Atlanta friends in Scorched Moon to bring our live performance to nine major US cities, many of which we’re visiting for the first time. Massive thanks to Trapper and Jade for helping us book this tour; we couldn’t have done it without you, and we can’t wait to perform with you!”

ICE GIANT’s new album, ‘Ghost of Humanity’, will be released

on September 8, and is available for pre-order HERE


ICE GIANT has one focus: to create engaging and satisfying music by combining the best elements of death metal, thrash metal, and progressive metal. Since the release of their self-titled album in 2017, ICE GIANT have performed at numerous venues across New England, and plan to bring their killer live show down the entire East Coast by the end of 2023. Patrons of the live performances can sport their favorite ICE GIANT t-shirt and enjoy epic belting vocals, blistering guitar harmonies, ground shaking orchestral sound design and a thunderous rhythm section.

ICE GIANT’s new album ‘Ghost of Humanity’ was recorded and mixed by Brian Westbrook at Sonic Titan Studios and mastered by Jack Kosto over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic. It features an electric bass performance by Peter de Reyna, as well as keyboards and orchestrations by Vikram Shankar. The album will be released on September 8th, 2023.

‘Ghost of Humanity’ is a thematic space odyssey about the final survivors of the human race as they escape from post-apocalyptic earth and try to find a new home elsewhere in the galaxy. Along the way, the listener is presented with ethical questions surrounding the nature of humanity, its impact on the planet’s climate, the morality of warfare, and more.

Chris Ianuzzi: Distant Suns/Wide Side two-sided single

Story: Ralph Greco, Jr. Spacey blips flow into a synth-led danceable beat, with vocals making more music than they do an actual statement on the first tune of NYC-composer Chris Ianuzzi’s new double single. This tune, “Distant Suns,” keeps up with its blurring, plastic-pulling video-game sounds, and swirling vocals throughout its mid-tempo four-minute + mélange. […]
