Gas Giants are a pop rock band from Tempe, Arizona, formed as a successor project to the Gin Blossoms. The group was known as The Pharaohs when they formed in 1997, but changed their name after their label, A&M Records, merged with Universal Records and the band changed hands, re-signing with Interscope Records. [Bill Crandall, [http://www.rollingstone.com/news/story/5923686/gin_blossoms_singer_a_giant_again Gin Blossoms Singer a Giant Again] . "Rolling Stone", August 12, 1999. Accessed July 26, 2007.] Eventually, the group released their album, "From Beyond the Back Burner", in 1999 on indie Atomic Pop Records. Comic book artist Geof Darrow provided the artwork for the album. The band features Gin Blossoms members Robin Wilson, Phillip Rhodes and Daniel Henzerling, as well as Mickey Ferrel, who was previously in the band Grevious Angels. Henzerling was the drummer for the Gin Blossoms before the current drummer, Phillip Rhodes. The band toured with Train in 2000 behind the band's only single, "Quitter".

Because the Gin Blossoms have reunited as of 2006, Gas Giants appear to be on indefinite hiatus.
