Giant Drag Splits in Two

Drummer/keyboardist Micah Calabrese "departs," at least as far as MySpace is concerned.

SPIN iconSPIN Staff // December 12, 2006

According to their MySpace page, darling new grunge torchbearers Giant Drag have retracted into a solo project for singer/guitarist Annie Hardy, with drummer and synth-player Micah Calabrese no longer listed as a member of the band. “It’s not really a breakup,” a spokesperson for the band told “He has left the band before.”

But Hardy has removed Calabrese’s name from the band’s MySpace page and left fans curious about the likelihood of a future album. “She’s writing it,” assured our source. The album, a follow-up to 2005’s Hearts and Unicorns, is yet to be assigned a release date. Notorious for her fictional rants and blunt disgusting humor — including gross-out confessions about death (read more) and about suffering sexual abuse at the hands of Chris Isaac — Hardy could be pulling our chain. It certainly wouldn’t be the first time.

Talk: Do you think Calabrese will return or is Hardy really going it alone? COMMENT
