Giant Drag New Video “Stuff To Live For” + New EP On The Way

Annie Hardy, Giant Drag frontwoman and perhaps the funniest lady in all of
indie rockdom is back with a new record, 4 years since her most excellent
debut album 2005’s “Hearts & Unicorns”.

The 4-song EP titled “Swang Song” will come out this October.

This EP was recorded with partner in crime/drummer Micah Calabrese who
came back after quitting the band for a spell but is now back in the
GD fold full time.

They’ve been label-less after Geffen dropped them from their roster
back in 2007 and they couldn’t be happier about it. Annie decided to
turn to her devoted fans and create the Giant Drag Relief Fund which all
the donated money from said fans and also funds earned from an Ebay Store
she set up where GD merchandise and some of her personal stuff has been
put up for auction, went into recording this new EP and the upcoming
sophomore album. Hence why the long wait between records.

She’s also kept very busy.

She was a host on the weekly web radio show Get The Fuck Up Radio where
she brought the funny on a weekly basis. Why she doesn’t have her own
radio or TV show for that matter somewhere outthere is mind boggling.
I would totally listen/watch that shit. A few acting gigs went her way,
recently in a short Spike Jonze film, she also appears in the
David Lynch/Sparklehorse/Danger Mouse photo book “Dark Night Of The Soul”.

But mostly, in the last few years, she’s been fighting this disorder
called Fibromyalgia which is classified by the presence of chronic
widespread pain and a heightened and painful response to gentle touch
which kept her down but not out.

She’s kept an online presence thanks to her college interns/assistants
Amy and Ryan. She did a very funny interview with fellow recording
artist Amy Kuney, the lady Tweets as does Micah and they’ve begun
doing live stream shows where you can watch them shoot the shit,
answer fan questions, perform songs acoustic style and some live
auction action goes on aswell.

Here’s the first 3 hour live stream show they did last month:

The next show is this Saturday, August 29th @ 4:30pm EST (1:30pm PST).

A music video was just released for the new single “Stuff To Live For”.
Directed by G.J. Echternkamp, watch Annie (who went blonde for this)
being dumped on with all sorts of crap and gooey substances for
4 minute straight.
