Orlando based band Among Giants will be releasing their long awaited CD “Truth Hurts” on July 31, 2012. This is the band’s first full-length recording. Among Giants has been primarily a solo acoustic act from Orlando singer/songwriter Greg Hughes, but for several songs on “Truth Hurts” as well as some upcoming live performances, Hughes has added members to Among Giants.
All the songs on “Truth Hurts” were written by Hughes. There will be 12 songs on the CD, six songs are acoustic, two songs are acoustic with drums and four songs feature a full band performance. Zach Anderson (Among Giants) played all the drums on the album and some bass. Cindy Blackburn contributed some guest vocals.
“The song from the album that probably means the most to me is the song, ‘Late Nights,’” said Hughes. “I wrote the song when I worked at a bowling alley for about 8-9 hours a day and each day it felt like I would go straight from doing school work to working for the rest of the night. I really like this line from the song, ‘If I slowly forget, the things I love and who I’ve become I will never forgive myself,’ because it felt like I never had time to do things that I really wanted to do, and I could see how people get sucked into the trap of just going to work, coming home and that’s it. That is something I really want to avoid in my life.”
The CD was produced and recorded by Steve Marino (Moor Hound) who also contributed electric guitar, bass and backing vocals for some of the songs on “Truth Hurts.” Tyler Bisson of Audio Geography mixed and mastered the songs. Bisson graduated from UMASS Lowell for Audio Production and has worked on many band’s albums including Scrap Kids and Atlas the Atom Smasher.
The CD will be available at iTunes, CD Baby and Amazon as well as other on line retailers. Tour dates are planned for August in support of the new CD include stops in Orlando FL, Tallahassee, FL, New Orleans, LA, Hattiesburg, MS, Birmingham, AL, Greenville, SC, Saint Augustine, FL, and Deland, FL.
