HistoryEdit

Howling Giant formed sometime in 2014 and not long after formation, would compose material for an EP. This eponymous effort would be released on 15 January 2015, followed by the band's earliest known show on 13 March.[1] From that point the band would perform more frequent shows, including a string of mini-tours that July and August.

In 2016 the band would record a follow-up EP at Converse Rubber Tracks Studios in Boston, leading to the release of Black Hole Space Wizard Part 1 on 12 August 2016. The band would record a follow-up in Nashville, Black Hole Space Wizard Part 2 released on 25 August 2017. At this point the band began more frequent touring through the fall of 2017 going into 2018, which would lead to three US tours. This would include appearances at Firebreather Fest, Psycho Las Vegas, Doom Daze of Summer and Descendants of Crom.

On 2 August 2019 it would be revealed that Howling Giant had signed to Blues Funeral Recordings and unveiled details on their debut studio album entitled The Space Between Worlds. Described as an album with an "overarching concept exploring the idea that when we dream, we are in fact creating worlds that are just as tangible and legitimate as the waking world we live in.", The Space Between Worlds is set for release on 27 September 2019, with several shows surrounding the album's release. The band would attempt to tour the UK for the first time in 2020 but this tour would be postponed due to the CO-VID19 outbreak happening all over the world.
