Gigaton Cover Artwork 


Of the album - Mike McCready has said - 

“Making this record was a long journey.  It was emotionally dark and confusing at times, but also an exciting and experimental road map to musical redemption. Collaborating with my bandmates on Gigaton ultimately gave me greater love, awareness and knowledge of the need for human connection in these times."


Gigaton is available for pre-order now at


The first single, “Dance of the Clairvoyants”, will be released in the coming weeks.
