The Jungle Giants Return with First Single from Forthcoming Album, Announce National Tour

The Jungle Giants are back with their first new single since their 2021 album Love Signs: a woozy, electronic cut called ‘Trippin Up’. It’s the first preview of the band’s upcoming fifth studio album – details of which are currently under wraps.

“So pumped to be releasing ‘Trippin Up’,”frontman Sam Hales said in a statement. “It all began with a dive into some aspects of electronic drum production that were so fun to experiment with. Can’t wait to see that drop live baby.”
