Glassjaw


#41

Is it true that Glassjaw have refused to give anything a proper release because their contract with Roadrunner was for all their output over 10 years and not x number of albums and so they were waiting for the contract to expire? That seems like bullshit internet rumour, right?


#42

I think there was something to that but it must have lapsed a long time ago surely?


#43

It was handed out at the end of gigs initially - got mine at the Forum show. Think they started selling it on their site though.


#44

Worship and Tribute wasnt on Roadrunner was it


#45

Didn’t they put it out on Warner or something without the artwork as Roadrunner wouldn’t let them have that.

I’ve a feeling Head Automatica have also blamed labels for not releasing their last album.


#46

I don’t think the relationship is that strained now cause Daryl sang on one of those Roadrunner United songs


#47

Glassjaw are quite good for that - the end bit of Must’ve Run All Day (the “my boss said to me…” verse is taken from the opening lines of a Mind Over Matter song word for word


#48

woahhhh


#49

some more here


#50

It’s on YouTube. Was just listening to it


#51

Is that all the quotes, like Frank Zappa and the like?


#52

Hmm yeah, new white extremity is a bit lacking innit.


#53

How do you.mean? Its the glassjaw lyric and underneath the song hes taken it from


#54

Definitely doesn’t sound like them pushing forward. Other new songs they’ve played live haven’t really grabbed me either, but I’m putting that down to them being stripped back for a live setting. Not sure why I think that - just wanna hope!


#55

Was just being lazy and hadn’t clicked the link.


#56

This seemingly has been fully confirmed by the looks of things. Sorry if this has been mentioned above, I lost the thread with the saves the day references.

Their merch direct has been updated and there is a listening party scheduled for the 23rd in LA. Any angelinos here?


#57

Where’s the confirmation? I’ve seen This but wasn’t sure where they got that info from.


#58

Their Facebook page event.
And their official merchdirect - mind there’s no release date but with the listening party being next Thursday I can imagine it being super soon.

Shira has apparently been released as a single. I think this is just a clip though and it’s not on Spotify (for me at least) yet:
