American Christian metalcore band from Redlands, CA Sleeping Giant have announced their headlining Kingdom Days In An Evil Age tour with support from In the Midst Of Lions, Gideon, First Blood and Betrayal. Check out all of the dates below, and make sure to see this show if it comes anywhere near you. It’s going to be a great tour!

All members of Sleeping Giant were at one time in the band xDEATHSTARx. A documentary of Sleeping Giant was made by Inside Heavy.

This quote, taken from Sleeping Giant‘s MySpace page, summarizes the idea Sleeping Giant was founded upon. Sleeping Giant represent a great and terrible day when all living things will return to dust; and their sound is as formidable as one might suspect the apocalypse should be. Sleeping Giant charged onto the Redlands, CA scene in 2006 with their bold and powerful live show, where in addition to being entranced by ominous guitars, crowds are met with burning passion from articulate front man Tom Green. The sincerity behind the words that pour out from Greens mouth is deeply rooted in the band’s unwavering love for The Lord. Sleeping Giant are resolute in their goal to reach as many people as possible with their message of repentance; but their music is anything but single-minded. The diversity of sound on their debut Dread Champions of the Last Days is striking, and listeners will find the bands ability to morph seamlessly from one track to the next to be unforgettable.

We are called Sleeping Giant because Christians in the world today are just that, in the world. And they need to wake up! They are sleeping giants of war in this world over-run by apathy, by people who do not see the enormity of their worth and don’t realize they live their lives day by day forsaking love, and a just and amazing God who deserves it all.”

The band has recorded two full-length albums through Facedown Records. The band has toured the United States several times and have played internationally in Israel. Currently they are signed to Christian label ANGR.
