Krist Novoselic – the former bassist for Nirvana, has formed a new band. Giants in the Trees was formed in Wahkiakum County Grange, and have recently released their first single “Sasquatch.”
Although this isn’t the first band Novoselic has been in since Nirvana, it’s an exciting new project with experienced and talented musicians. Novoselic did some recordings with Foo Fighters, the band Nirvana’s former drummer, Dave Grohl founded after Kurt Cobain’s passing.
Giants in the Trees was created only last year, and have been mostly playing local small venues. Over the summer, they have played shows in Seattle, Portland, Spokane, Skamokawa and Olympia.
Jillian Raye, Erik Friend, Ray Prestegard and Novoselic met through the local Grange organization, and are heavily involved with environmentalism. The band values “inclusive democracy, humanity, peace, prosperity, sustainable living, compassion, community, decentralization.”
Giants in the Trees is still small and local, despite having former member of a widely recognized iconic band as their bassist.
Krist Novoselic is a Grammy award winner and a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The band has been recording new music for a project that has yet to be titled.
