Metal quintet Toarn are proud to premiere their new EP, Giant Killer. The Washington metalheads, recently signed to Luxor Records, will officially release the work on Friday, July 15. We spoke with drummer Taylor Cort about the new release:

“We wrote this record in hopes to unify many. We all struggle with our day to day giants and we’re not alone in this fight. Giant Killer isn’t just Toarn’s album, it’s for every listener out there who needs to hear it!”

The band is based in Los Angeles, CA and “strives to bring a message of hope and salvation to metal fans across North America.”

Toarn also released the first music video for the EP earlier this week for the eponymous track, which you can watch it below. The single helps to raise awareness for the estimated 1,000,000 children who are either forced or coerced into sexual slavery every year. For more information, please visit the Polaris Project.
