You might be interested to know Giant Drag broke up. At least, Micah left the band and now Annie seems to be kind of doing it on her own. I don?t think anyone is talking about this. It?s kind of a big deal if you ask me. Just thought you?d want to know.

Just like Ron Burgundy, it is kind of a big deal! We keep fond thoughts of the duo, thanks in no small part to their gorgeous cover of “God Only Knows” that surfaced last year. This wouldn’t be the first time the two have parted ways; they temporarily split between the Lemona EP and their full-length debut Hearts And Unicorns. Although Giant Drag have no shows lined up, their MySpace bears this listing next to Band Members:

annie and whoever else feels like doing it.

Sorta suggests Annie’s looking for some company, no? Ahh, she’ll be fine; simultaneous-drum-and-synth players practically grow on trees.

    i’m calling bulshit pr stunt

  6. Giant Drag = one of the most boring live shows I’ve ever seen in my life.

    One of the best performances I’ve seen this year – although this was mostly due to Annie being incredibly drunk and jetlagged. And er.. wayward.

    re the blow–i believe their article in the fader said dude was just not going to tour, not that there was a break-up.

    “You might be interested to know..”

    Or, you might not.

    Jona doesn’t always tour with Khaela, and Khaela was The Blow before Jona (YACHT) even properly joined. So yeah, that isn’t unusual or worrying that Jona/Khaela didn’t tour together.

    As for Giant Drag, I wasn’t a fan….but Annie is hot.

  11. giant drag are awesome.

    she can always get more than one musician replacement, rather than a sim drum-synth chappie.

  13. I love Giant Drag and it said on their fan site annies still going on with gd so thats all cool

    I’ll tell you what their breaking up is. It’s a giant drag.

    chris bro, check out or their myspace or anywhere else, they didn’t break up. they just played shows last month with lemonheads and the jesus and mary chain(it was awesome!) and theres another one coming up. and like this post said, micahs quit the band before and annie kept going without him. now its a full band and i think its even better than before. can’t wait for the new record theyre about to make.
