NEW GLASSJAW SONG SENDS INTERNET INTO A TIZZY
Glassjaw’s place in the pantheon of rawwrrr metal is certainly up for debate, but there isn’t any doubt that they’ve had a huge impact on today’s music scene. When our own Sergeant D wrote an extensive history of metalcore/screamo he omitted Glassjaw, an important band to both scenes indeed, but once upon a time ex-Roadrunner / current Century Media A&R honcho Mike Gitter wrote a guest column for us in which he praised the band and their seminal album Everything You Ever Want to Know About Silence.
Glassjaw have been working on their third album, the first since 2002’s Worship and Tribute, for what seems like forever. Rumors have been circulating since 2006 and the band has done occasional tours in the meantime, but until now there hasn’t been any new music; Metal Insider alerted us to the fact that the new song “All Good Junkies Go To Heaven” is now circulating online. The ever-reliable Wikipedia tells me that the band released a 7″ vinyl single forthe song at the UK’s Hevy Fest on August 8th and that it will ship everywhere else on August 20, 2010 via Merch Direct.
So, check it out and let us know what you think. I’ve never been huge on Glassjaw but I’ve always respect them, and I love Daryl Palumbo’s voice.
