The Year in Review

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!

Seven Years Strong

Seven years ago today, the first inception of what would later become "TimeGiant" took the stage for their debut show.  On March 15th, 2006, Tyrone Buccione and myself (Ryan Watson) performed as a two piece guitar act under the moniker "TIME".  Playing in Windsor, Ontario at a local University "Battle of the Bands" as two young (and very green) musicians, we played heavy rock n' roll covers and a few early original tunes without the added support of a full band.  

What we lacked in talent at that time, we certainly made up for in attitude and energy.  This wasn't a two piece acoustic set by any means.  We turned the volume up LOUD, and played heavy riffs on two  electric guitars with small 15 watt amps.  There were no drums.  There was no bass.    But there was a very intense feeling that something big was in the works.  Despite the fact that we did not advance in the competition, we both knew that "TIME" would grow into something much larger if we stuck to our rock n' roll roots and chased the goal.

It wasn't long before we acquired bassist Pat Wilken, and after a few years with rotating drummers between Carey Linton, and Taso Pavlou, we eventually landed with energetic drummer Charlie McKittrick.

Today is a very special day for TimeGiant.  After 7 years of developing as musicians both individually and as a band, TimeGiant is at the highest point of their career with an enormous year ahead.  In just 4 days on March 19th, TimeGiant will be launching the official public release of their new music video, "I Am The Fire", and on March 22nd, TimeGiant will be performing at Rivoli for Canadian Music Fest with FINGER ELEVEN guitarist, James Black and a massive guest headliner to be announced.  The show will be hosted by OUR LADY PEACE drummer Jeremy Taggart, and TimeGiant will be performing the following night as well at The Underground Garage on March 23rd.  

Four brand new tracks are nearly complete with producer Greig Nori (Treble Charger, Sum 41) and the band couldn't be happier with the massive push we have been receiving as of late.  

TimeGiant is now endorsed by Blundstone Boots, SIT Strings, Godin Guitars, Prestige Guitars, and TRX cymbals, and have turned a lot of heads in the past year.

March 15th, 2006 will go down in the record books as the VERY first official TIME show, and we've come a VERY long way since then.  So here's to 7 amazing years of learning, and another 7 amazing years of living the dream.  Put your glasses in the air!  Thank you for the support.  WE LOVE YOU!

annnnnnd... ACTION!!!

TimeGiant has been firing on all cylinders as usual, turning up the heat and burning down the streets!  Last week the boys shot a music video for "I Am The Fire" at Salt and Pepper Studio's, in Toronto, Ontario.  With cameraman/director Rich Meisner manning the shoot, TimeGiant shot a very realistic, interactive live action video that will enable the viewer to choose the camera angle.  In this unique, trendsetting style, viewers will be able to switch camera angles throughout the video while watching online, to see various perceptions of individual band members, wide angle shots, and many other views!  The filming is now complete, and the music video for "I Am The Fire" should be released in the coming month!

Of course, throughout this busy schedule of video shoots, writing, and recording new songs with producer Greig Nori, TimeGiant is still hard on the road and performing in cities around Ontario.  Last week's show with Treble Charger at The Dakota Tavern was lit up, and the coming weeks will prove to be just as exciting!  Don't miss TimeGiant at Canadian Music Week and these upcoming dates!

March 1st - Cherry Cola's - Toronto, On
March 6th - APK Live - London, On
March 22nd - CMW - Shanghai Cowgirl (acoustic set w/ The Beards) - Toronto, On
