Pre-Order/Pre-Save How Have You Been? HERE
Just in time for the drop in temperatures, Giant Rooks release their new single “Cold Wars” via Mercury/Republic Records. Follow-up to their last single “For You” – an up-tempo song for their fans – “Cold Wars” is the perfect, nostalgic ballad for autumn.“Cold Wars” is a song that invites listeners to reminisce and dive deep into their own emotions. From the very first seconds, the song transports the listener into a world of nostalgia, evoking a feeling of warmth and melancholy with lines like “sweet lullabies / they send me off dreaming, I’m dreaming”.
The song is another step on the journey towards the band’s second album. “How Have You Been?” will be released on February 2, 2024, and promises an abundance of memorable pop moments, with its unmistakable Rooks sound, catchy melodies, polished lyrics and sophisticated songwriting. Since that first album, a lot has happened to the band, consisting of singer Frederik Rabe, guitarist Finn Schwieters, bassist Luca Göttner, keyboardist Jonathan Wischniowski and drummer Finn Thomas – and that’s something of an understatement. Rookery reached number 3 in the German album charts and amassed over 200 million streams in 2020, picking up awards and selling out tours across Germany and Europe. Things then quieted down and the band concentrated on writing new material and on their live shows.
On How Have You Been, Giant Rooks sum up the last few years in 14 songs. To give you a first taste of the album, the band has released an album trailer. In addition to the album in February 2024, the band will also go on tour with stops in Europe, the UK, and North America. All tour dates can be found at: www.giant-rooks.com.
