Giant Drag's Waking Up Is Hard To Do Available NOW
Have you bought your copy of Waking Up Is Hard To Do yet? It’s for sale exclusively at anniehardy.bandcamp.com and if you buy the deluxe edition for $15 you get that album with a digital booklet containing a foreword written by Joe Cardamone, extra photos, lyrics, a thank you list that you yourself may well be on and a bonus EP of the 4 track demos that Joe Cardamone and I recorded in 2007 in his living room. The demos that kept the dream of finishing this album alive for seven long years!
Yeah! Right Records will be releasing Waking Up on vinyl and I have made a short run of CDs but as of right now you can only win one via me.
Hope you are all doing well and more than that I hope you’ll come over to

Giant Drag's Long-Awaited Second Studio Album is FINALLY Coming Out in A FewHours!
So it wasn’t the best PR move or in best interest for my career in general but I decided to stop talking about Giant Drag’s album Waking Up Is Hard To Do until something was happening. People who talk about shit but never have anything to show for it are the worst, so I put my head down and started working. I found it somewhat easy to concentrate on work with most people I’ve ever been friends with for some reason thinking I am still living in Orange County…. Nope I have been in LA since May of last year, I was just a little too psycho to tell you about it! So yeah, I am back here in LA, doing my thing, seeing what works and what doesn’t for the new me and wouldn’t you know it, Giant Drag might be living up to it’s nU grunge, bummer of a (brilliant) name and all signs point to a nice change of musical pace for me. I can’t fake it, I don’t want to. Giant Drag has felt like one big lonely abscessed tooth that needed to be pulled to make way for a colony of new, better, whiter, faster, catchier teeth to take it’s place. I know some of those characteristics don’t apply to teeth but humor me, I’ve been working like a dog with Ann Jones day in and out.
Things are getting better, I am building a new empire in Full Psycho so don’t be sad that after this long-time-coming album is released Giant Drag will be a thing of the past, instead lets look towards the future which, for once is sort of bright and not just there waiting for me under a Seattle-y hue of grey nu grunge misery. If you would like to keep up on my future musical endeavors I suggest you visit www.fullpsychorecords.com where me and my friends will be doing all sorts of cool shit like releasing more records, making videos and even making crafts! We also have a message board where we can all talk to each other and do cool shit together. Please come say hi! I’ll be finally revealing the true “Kevin Is Gay” meaning on there soon…
If you feel you have been overlooked and should be a part of the board’s Super Friends Club (like if you’ve bought me some pedal in the past or otherwise been a super friend, donated to the cause that is this record thats coming out) please tell us, we forget stuff and shit is hectic so email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can hook your ass up.
So back to this record, it’s coming out exclusively on anniehardy.bandcamp.com Tuesday, March 5th. There’s going to be a regular version and then the Deluxe Edition which I strongly suggest you buy for only $5 more, you get the “What I Know About Nothing: 2007 Acoustic Demos” also recorded and produced by Joe Cardamone, as well as the foreword he wrote, the lyrics, the special photos and Thank You list & something else I feel I’m forgetting… Oh well, it happens. Shit happens, right? This year has been the most happenin’, shitty year of my life and things are looking up for once so I bet I’m going to die soon. Maybe not though. Regardless, I really want to thank everyone who has been a fan, member, lover, hater, compadre and otherwise supporter of Giant Drag and me personally. I couldn’t have made it to this point without each and every one of you and I would hate to have to carry on without you so please, even if you think I wouldn’t notice you in your absence, I would. If you think I forgot about your grab bag, I didn’t. If you wonder if I really care or not, I do (but I’d like to one day not) because without you there is no me. Without me and Micah there is no Giant Drag but there is Annie Hardy and the Psychos and PnP… Plus you never know, everything can change in a day but this is the plan for now.
So thank you again from the bottom of my heart for your unwavering friendship and support and lets keep fighting the good fight while everyone else just talks about their lunch of Facebook.
Forever Your Girl,

Giant Drag Unreleased Songs, Now on Bandcamp... Released
Well, it’s the end of another long stretch of insurmountible sufferage combined with a few activities and now some forward movement for this band that most definitely should NOT be so fucking difficult to move forward on. Sometimes it just is apparent when shit ain’t supposed to happen. I’m thinking of taking this old horse into the glue factory instead of beating it’s ass to death.
But I have some news and announcements before that happens!
Giant Drag Twosie’s are back on! Every other Tuesday, Two songs for $2.22 plus a bonus feature! All these tracks are previously unreleased and some of them brand new, all exclusive through anniehardy.bandcamp.com so go check it out!
Also, Giant Drag is going to be putting out that live LP “Shredding Leeds: Giant Drag Live in the UK” on collectors edition white label vinyl via Full Psycho Records, my new record label. Just me.
Also in the works is a new, crafty, merch store and… oh shit that reminds me
GRAB BAGS!!! If you are one of a couple people who won Grab Bags off eBay and didn’t get your shit yet, please hold tight! Some majorly psycho shit happened over the last few months and it trickled down to fucking with your package’s delivery. I’m very sorry and hopefully I’ll have made up for it in the contents!
Okay back to the live record. It’s going to be limited, very small run vinyl only. Every copy will be collectors item type shit, hand touches and all that. So in the spirit of this, because these LP’s will be featuring some cool ass handmade & hand numbered aspects, I need more art supplies and that shit ain’t cheap!
So I’m fundraising, with music…get over to Bandcamp (anniehardy.bandcamp.com) and buy this week’s Twosie (the Deux-sie, Live from France, remember you gotta buy it as an album so you can get the bonus mp3s for each and every Twosie) and whoever buys that shit and enter’s the secret contest words “Contest Live LP” and win’s will get their name in the LP’s Thank You liner notes, all featured in a way that only super friendship gets your name done up in. And in addition to the winner being chosen by random by their transaction receipt.
WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED NEXT TUESDAY AUGUST 18, 2012!!! You have til then to win! More info at anniehardy.bandcamp.com.
