Metal/Hardcore band Sleeping Giant are bringing it home to Facedown Records to say goodbye with their final album “I Am,” set to release January 26.

Vocalist Tommy Green reflects on the past 12 years:

For me personally this band has been such an important and special gift in my life that I needed to know that I was actually at a point where I could let go and move on. I didn’t want to feel grief like there was something unexpressed, unsaid, or undone in me; I didn’t want to feel like I was selling myself out. This band has become the private journal made public of the story of my life. It is one of the most important things I have ever done.

It’s crazy and beautiful and hard and awesome and cathartic and creative all at the same time. I thank God for hardcore. I have been able to express my passion and my pain over the last 12 years. Continue reading »

Jake Luhrs of August Burns Red started an online non-profit called HeartSupport to give his fans a place to talk about and overcome their struggles. His vision is to unite the scene–fans and bands alike–so that no one in the music scene has to struggle alone.

"Finished People" 2014In every genre there is a band that stands out, a band that plays a significant role in the relevance and history of the genre, and Sleeping Giant is one of those bands.

Sleeping Giant is a Metal-core band from Redlands, California in the United States. Apparently or originally when they started all its members were a part of xDeathStarX, a Christian straight edge metal-core band (2002-2009), who were also signed to Facedown Records.

What one gets from listening to Sleeping Giant is that their purpose is to spread the love of Jesus Christ and to present the love of Christ and Father with passion and zeal. In short what they bring to the hardcore scene is end days worship that is set in their hearts to bring glory to God.

The name Sleeping Giant originated from the fact that people often sleep in their relationship with God, and the way we sometimes choose to live. However it’s time to wake up and do something about it, that’s the meaning of Sleeping Giant.

The purpose of Sleeping Giant has always been to give glory to God and the release of ‘Finished People’ is no different. Continue reading »
