Giants At Large
Giants At Large is a band based out of Long Island NY.
New Found Glory said it best: "Pop-punk isn't dead" and Brampton, Canada pop-punk act July are further proof of that. Having recruited the refined pipes of Devin Moody, the band is now more complete than ever, joining forces with childhood friends, guitarist Andrew Falcao, bassist Marc Sautter, and drummer Sam Guaiana, Moody has added new depth to the band's impressive sound. While most new pop-punk acts are become more hardcore influenced, July has keep to the roots of the genre, paying homage to pioneers like Fall Out Boy and All Time Low through huge hooks, infectious melodies, and a relentless uptempo beat that will keep your heart racing through their whole discography.
On their sophomore effort titled 'MMXII,' July further explores the element that sets them apart from their peers. Armed with a new weapon in the arsenal: Moody's dynamic and emotive voice, the band is able to further delve into their own style. "Second Best" and "What We Signed Up For" are pop-punk anthems that put a new spin on the sound July fans have come to know and love. "Collapse" is a ballad-y gem that takes the band's sound to a whole new level, winning the attention of a broader audience.
This assiduous work ethic has earned the band notable accolades such as: being featured at Koi Fest, Canadian Music Week, and a coveted spot on AbsolutePunk's Top 100 of 2012. July plans to intensify their already hectic tour schedule in the coming year with plans to broaden their growing fan base through touring and staying connected to their current fans.
With the debut release 'The Best Nights EP,' it showcased a collection of catchy pop punk, reminiscent of bands that paved the way for the likes of July, while retaining an element of singularity. Songs like "Dance, Shuffle, Move Your Feet" and "I Live My Life For The Weekend" became instant fan favorites inciting manic sing along sessions at every live show.
