The past two Fridays, Decibel Magazine’s Deciblog posted teasers about a mysterious signing from Relapse Records entitled “Guess Who Relapse Records Signed (parts 1 & 2).” The first post included only two cryptic images from the upcoming release, while the second post included two more images and a complete mp3 for their readers to download. Most everyone who read these posts was stumped as to who the band could be. A lot of the comments are very funny. I encourage you to read through both postings.

Well today I am happy to report that Relapse has finally announced that the band is none other than Mose Giganticus. The album, entitled Gift Horse, will be released on July 20th and is available for pre-order right now at relapse.com, so head on over there and check it out. Also, check out the newly revamped Mose Giganticus Myspace Page.

Here are some excerpts from the press release and images from the Deciblog posts:

Relapse Records is proud to announce the signing of Philadelphia, PA’s MOSE GIGANTICUS.

MOSE GIGANTICUS’ Relapse debut Gift Horse is set for a July 20th North American release date and is the follow-up to the band’s 2008 EP release Commander!. Gift Horse was recorded at Skylight Studios (CIRCA SURVIVE, NONE MORE BLACK, TURMOIL, HOT CROSS) with engineer Vince Ratti and is available for pre-order at this location. The first preview track from Gift Horse, “The Left Path”, was posted via Decibel Magazine’s Deciblog last week along with previews of the album’s artwork. “The Left Path” can also be heard online now via the newly redesigned MOSE GIGANTICUS MySpace page: MySpace.com/MoseGiganticus.

“I’m definitely excited about the release of Gift Horse on Relapse,” says MOSE GIGANTICUS’ Matt Garfield, “The album itself has been two-years in the making and its much heavier than what people have heard from Commander! and Invisible Hand. Relapse is just the optimal place to release it.”

MOSE GIGANTICUS, who tours in a converted shuttle bus that runs on recycled vegetable oil, has announced a run of May tour dates. This run of dates will include stops at a handful of d-i-y festivals including Ithaca, NY’s Big Day In Fest, Wilmington, NC’s Rad Fest, and Cleveland, OH’s Weapons of Mass Creation. A complete listing of tour dates and cities can be found in the tour section with more to be announced soon.
