MINUS THE GIRL
STANDING ON THE SHOULDERS OF GIANTS
“Standing on the shoulders of giants” (Latin: nanos gigantum humeris insidentes) is a Western metaphor meaning “One who develops future intellectual pursuits by understanding the research and works created by notable thinkers of the past.” The band Standing on the Shoulders of Giants was formed in 2007 originally as a hardcore band and after a few member changes the band developed into more of a “classic rock with a modern twist” sound and recorded their debut album with drummer Chris Foss and guitarist Nick Raducha. SOTSOG has had a rollercoaster ride with many ups and downs along with a new drummer,Justin Knight, joining and Nick Raducha stepping away from the band…but recently SOTSOG came to a stop to regroup and write some new material with current members Jacob Taus,Alex Garibay,Jimmy Wernes,Tara Murphy and Justin Knight. The debut album,”With Anticipation”, was a success with the bands fanbase and new fans alike and now they hope to take it up a notch with a follow up album tentatively titled,”Ultra Euphonic”. The new album still has it’s ‘classic/modern rock’ vibe but also plays into a groove-ier/blues-ier/jazz-ier vibe in hopes to help the audience feel the music a little more. Stay on the lookout for the new stuff and we’d also like to give thanks for your on going support.
