John LaRussa, formerly of Inhale Exhale, has started a new project, Animal Giant, and they’ve released a new song, “Ruiner,” here for you. LaRussa spoke with HM about the track.

I feel like this song is more focused on where I want to take this project. It’s only going get heavier and, overall, more aggressive.  This song is somewhat story-based, and I plan on releasing a full-length in the distant future.  The EP was just the initial thought.

Jam it loud.

Animal Giant’s The Glory EP was reviewed by HM in the August issue.
