Turn it up and get ready to feel the "deja vu", as TimeGiant takes you on the road and back again with "Been Here Before"! The brand new music video, filmed and produced by Rich Meisner (www.thecutcartel.com), is a feel good ride as the boys travel the North-American highways, entertaining hordes of fist-pumping fans and whiskey drinkers at every stop along the way. The video culminates with a shoot at the infamous, "Cherry Cola's Rock n' Roll Cabaret" in downtown Toronto, and shows a brilliant mix of light-hearted fun and power-house rock n' roll. The track, Been Here Before was produced by notable Treble Charger front-man, Grieg Nori, and was recorded at Coalition Studios. TimeGiant - Been Here Before will leave you with your hands in the air and a chant that radiates from your mind and body. Check it our friends and don't forget to crank that speaker dial to 11!!!!!

Well TimeGiant has been busy in the rehearsal room writing loads of new tunes to kick off the new year! We will be back in studio doing preproduction on some brand new tracks very soon so you can expect an onslaught of fresh music coming at you this winter! In the meantime, TimeGiant has been booking a ton of tour dates throughout Ontario! These harsh Canadian winters can't slow down the VANimal so keep your eyes peeled for a big white van and four long hairs crushing into a city near you!
This Thursday, January 30th, TimeGiant will be direct support for Silverstein live at the Dominion House in Windsor, Ontario. Pre-sale tickets to this event are SOLD OUT but you may have a chance at the door the night of!
Silverstein is currently on a Canadian tour and will soon be hitting the U.S.A, Mexico, and Europe with over 50 shows scheduled. The band formed in the year 2000 and have since released seven studio albums, including their second release, "Discovering the Waterfront", which reached number 34 on the Billboard Top 200 chart (their next two albums garnered similar success). I remember watching Silverstein at the Vans Warped Tour in Barrie when I was still in high school, so having the opportunity to share the stage with such an enduring band is a great honour.
TimeGiant is amped up and ready to return to Windsor with the cannons loaded, so come on out and lets TURN IT UP! Stay tuned for updated tour news, and always remember to KEEP IT LOUD!

Well another year has passed and the boys in TimeGiant couldn't be happier with the success that 2013 had to offer. We had a jam packed year filled with heavy touring, the release of our brand new album "A Night To Remember, our first music video with "I Am The Fire", the spread of our new single's across campus radio throughout Canada, and some MASSIVE opening gigs in Canada and the U.S.A. We had the very unique opportunity of working with some incredible musicians, producers, engineers, and song-writers, all while expanding our touring repertoire and meeting some of the greatest fans that North-America has to offer.
TimeGiant spent the early months of 2013 writing and recording tracks for "A Night To Remember" and worked alongside renowned producers including Jon Drew (Alexisonfire, Arkells, Tokyo Police Club) and Treble Charger front-man Greig Nori. Nori produced massive hit albums for Treble Charger, Sum 41, Marianna's Trench and many others. His work on the new TimeGiant record was impeccable and our subsequent success following the albums release proved it.
TimeGiant toured heavily playing many Summer festivals including Mississauga Waterfront Festival, Owen Sound Rib Fest, Port Colborne Canal Days with The Tea Party, and a personal favourite of the band's, opening for Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience in front of 8000 screaming fans in Lockport, New York. Jason Bonham, son of legendary Led Zeppelin drummer Jon Bonham, performed many of his dad's hits to a boisterous crowd, and even took the time to share tricks of the trade with our own TimeGiant drummer Charlie McKittrick.

TimeGiant performed at WekFest 2013, a private party raising money for Seeds of Hope foundation which helps underprivileged children reach their full potential through fun and enriching activities. We had the surreal experience of opening for a star-studded line-up including Finger Eleven and Snoop Lion (aka Snoop Dogg), while soaking in the atmosphere and enjoying the amenities of such a high profile gig.

Amongst other incredible performances, TimeGiant toured with Crash Karma (Members of Our Lady Peace, The Tea Party, and I Mother Earth), opened for Treble Charger, U.S.S, The Tea Party, My Darkest Days, Head of the Herd, and so many other great bands. Our experiences in 2013 were unforgettable and TimeGiant will be ending off 2013 with a bang and starting the new year off right! This New Year's Eve, TimeGiant will be direct support, opening for Platinum recording artists, Headstones. Headstones have released 6 albums since 1993 including one certified Canadian Platinum and two certified Canadian Gold. We will be heading to the U.S.A for this massive New Year's Eve celebration with Headstones at Rapid's Theatre, in Niagara Falls, New York. Tickets to the show are available here: HEADSTONES and TimeGiant Tickets
VIP tickets are already sold out, but a limited number of general admission tickets are still available!
2013 has been an uplifting experience for this group of long-haired, rock n' roll road warriors, and we can't properly express our gratitude to each and every one of you who helped TimeGiant accomplish so much in this past year. We hope to see many of your faces at the New Year's Eve extravaganza, and TimeGiant can't wait to move forward even faster in 2014. The time is now for a rock n' roll takeover of the music industry, and TimeGiant is standing strong at the helm, ready for WAR! So thank you again, and remember to watch for your boys in TimeGiant as we cruise into a city near you with guns blazing!!! 2014, TimeGiant is coming for you! Turn it up... LOUD!
