==========================================

GIANT
=====
Frontiers Records and Now & Then Productions can finally and proudly
confirm that, after almost two years of hard work, a worldwide deal with
GIANT has been struck!

The mighty band fronted by brothers DANN and DAVID HUFF, plus bass
player MIKE BRIGNARDELLO, is finally back on scene at the beginning of
the XXIst century.

In December 1999, after a few telephone conversations, a meeting was
arranged in Chicago, between Frontiers Records label managers Serafino
Perugino and Mario de Riso with David Huff.

The two explained their vision to bring the name and the music of GIANT
back on the scene to David, who expressed his interest and enthusiasm
for the music that was created on their two albums "Last Of The
Runaways" and "Time To Burn".

After the said meeting, several months of dealings and talks followed
with many aspects being considered, especially the fact that the HUFF
brothers have always been convinced of the quite scarce interest of the
fans and press for their reunion and come back on the scene.

The label's position has always been very firm on this subject, so it
was always underlined that our belief was that the return of the
greatest names and musicians who created the bulk of the melodic hard
rock scene, could finally reawakened the market and the media interest
for classic hard rock music everywhere in the world.

In the end, GIANT finally aknowledged the label's vision and signed the
agreement with the Anglo / Italian record company on March 3rd 2001.

A compromise was found in order to make this comeback happen and that
was that the album would be made of a combination of new and unreleased
material with a few live and unplugged songs.

As of today, it appears that the new songs will be completed in a time
frame of 3 months from now for a release set to be sometime after the
summer of 2001.

Frontiers Records and Now & Then Productions wish to make a "call to
arms" to all the serious rock fans in the globe to make the GIANT come
back NOT a one-off spin of a glorious name, BUT the chance for a real
return of great rock music.

The band is already committed to promotional appearances in Europe in
support of the album's release. For concerts and festivals, all
promoters interested can file their requests to Frontiers Records at the
usual addresses.

On a personal note, Frontiers Records and Now & Then Productions wishes
to thank David Huff for the cooperation and the help given to make this
exciting venture a dream come true!

Also the band wishes to say hi to all the fans ("If any" - David added)
and promises to rock hard on the next record !!!
