Kingdom Of Giants release new single 'Side Effect'

Today, California-based metal band Kingdom of Giants have shared new track 'Side Effect', the latest single from their upcoming album Passenger. Showcasing a chorus that will be stuck in your mind instantly and a classic Kingdom of Giants breakdown their fans love, 'Side Effect' is an obvious standout on the album. When discussing the single, the band shared “We would love to hear what our listeners’ interpretations of this song are! We have all had too many instances where someone’s interpretation of our songs helped them more than our actual meanings ever would have.” Fans can check out 'Side Effect' and pre-order Passengerahead of its October 16th release date via SharpTone Records now at

With Passenger, Kingdom of Giants is poised to soar beyond 'best kept secret' status and into the modern metal and post-hardcore stratosphere, with a continuously evolving sound that pushes both the band and their audience forward. While firmly rooted in classic metalcore elements, familiar to fans of Killswitch Engage and As I Lay Dying or international counterparts like Architects and Northlane, the six-piece Californian band bravely colour outside the lines of the safe and predictable.

The only 'constant' in the Kingdom of Giants discography is the constant motion, as the group works tirelessly to ensure each album will take listeners on a rich, rewarding, and diverse journey. Passenger, the band’s fourth full-length and first in partnership with SharpTone Records, arrives like a bolt of lightning, heralding a torrential downpour across a desert of cookie-cutter clutter.

The band’s ability to recreate the depth and power of their recorded compositions on the stage has been demonstrated on stages across North America and Europe, as Kingdom of Giants built a reputation as road dogs on tours with Fit For A King, As I Lay Dying, Born Of Osiris and Phinehas.
