The Sun Is Setting On Giant Sand… as the band announce their final year of touring , plus Fire America set to release ‘The Sun Set’ Box Set Vol 1,2,3.
After this upcoming European tour in April, Giant Sand shall bid a final adios. No more albums. No more tours. The occasional festival ? Could be. Maybe.
Howe suggests that these last 2 years of touring felt like the best runs ever. Regardless if his memory has misspoken, he maintains the band is not breaking up cause there’s nothing broken. It’s just being put to bed, maybe one day to be awoken.
Good night little giant. .. good night. ..
mr. sand man .. bring me a dream. ..
As a parting farewell gift, Fire America will release a dreamy three volume box set of vinyl entitled; “The Sun Set”.
The complete A-Z of Giant Sand will be released alphabetically rather than chronologically, highlighting the careening career and wandering muse of Howe Gelb and his assembled sun blasted slingers.
