Red Giant is fittingly massive in thematic scope as it is in sonic heft. A concept album about the life of a star and what happens after it dies, the band depicts the stages of celestial death throughout the album's five epic tracks. Akin to similarly expansive musical works like Pink Floyd's Meddle,Tangerine Dream's Stratosfear, King Crimson's Red and a light dose of sci-fi soundtracks,Barrows build upon entrancing, circling riffs and rhythms intercut with explosive peaks and brilliant subtlty.
To capture this sweeping endeavor, the band teamed up with revered engineer Toshi Kasai (Melvins, Tool), hunkering down for several months at Kasai's newly built North Hollywood studio. The resulting 5-track, 40-minute album was mastered by Chris Common (Palms, Pelican) and is available on LP and download starting May 6th.
