Flint Town Throwdown Featured Band of the Week – Givensix

Givensix Facebook

The first round winner of our new local rock showdown is Flint’s own Givensix. Click through for more on the band and to hear their single ‘Victim.’

“I am the way, I am the first, I am the end,” is the guttural refrain from the pivotal track ‘Victim’ off of Givensix’s 2011 full-length album ‘Harvest.’ It’s a lyric that begs questions, demands attention, binds your feet and hands, and forces you to sing along. Blending time tested rock and roll songwriting techniques with progressive tones and hints of death core, Givensix isn’t your average meta…l band. Hailing from Flint, MI, they’ve forged their own sound, both dark and angry, yet somehow familiar, darkly comic and jaunty enough to make you wanna dance around or punch someone in the throat.

Harvest, was recorded with Tim Patalan (The Loft Studios, Sponge, Taproot), Ryan Darnell of 3Thirteen Entertainment, and Matt Dalton (37 Studios, In Fear and Faith, Maybe Whitney). The album is a tense and eerie journey of pain blended with tongue in cheek irony and misogyny. What it’s not, however, is anything you’ve been hearing on Top 40 rock radio for the last fifteen years. Gathering accolades from fans and industry folks alike, Harvest has created a solid buzz.
