THE STRANGLERS RELEASE ‘GIANTS’ ON MARCH 5TH 2012.

The Stranglers, who are still the UK’s most dangerously eccentric band, release their eagerly awaited new album, ‘Giants’ on 5th March 2012. The record coincides with an extensive European tour, kicking off with eighteen dates in the UK commencing 1st March.

The Stranglers are Jet Black (drums), JJ Burnel (bass and lead vocals), Dave Greenfield (keyboards) and Baz Warne (guitar and lead vocals). Giants features JJ Burnel and Baz Warne on shared vocal duties and boasts those trademark Stranglers bass lines and keyboard runs as well as a waltz (!) and the first instrumental the band have recorded since 1980. The full track listing runs: Another Camden Afternoon, Freedom Is Insane, Giants, Lowlands, Boom Boom, My Fickle Resolve, Time Was Once On My Side, Mercury Rising, Adios, 15 Steps.
