California-based metal band Kingdom of Giants have shared “Wayfinder” their latest single from upcoming album Passenger on Friday.

“Our good friend Orie Mcginness has once again topped himself with our new video for Wayfinder”, says vocalist Dana. “This is the 1st time we’ve ever done a video with very little performance, and also without most of the band members. We knew Wayfinder was going to be a single before we ever even finished the song. It’s different than anything we have ever written and feel it has such a unique, refreshing vibe.”
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.
