San Francisco post-metal, sludge scientists, GIANT SQUID, have been cultivating a resilient, and steadily growing cult following for nearly a decade now. Their lengthy, critically acclaimed career, was rather tumultuous in its beginning. Due to this, the band has always been moving forward, both in sound and spirit, focusing little on the past. This has resulted in some previously self released material, now long out of print and next to impossible to find, to be left behind in the clouded and confusing history of the band’s earliest days in Sacramento, CA, before the addition of full time member, and renown cellist, Jackie Perez Gratz. For years though, loyal fans have asked where to acquire these elusive releases, and, thanks to incredible label support from Philadelphia based Translation Loss Records, the band is finally in a place where they can meet those demands.
