NEWS: Glassjaw’s third album to feature drums from Billy Rymer (The Dillinger Escape Plan)!
December 6th, 2016
Despite dropping ‘New White Extremity’ just over a year ago, the first new material from post-hardcore legends Glassjaw since their 2011 EP ‘Coloring Book’, we’re still not really any closer to knowing when we’ll finally see a third full-length record and follow-up to 2002’s ‘Worship & Tribute’ from the New York outfit.
However, in a newly posted ‘100 Words Or Less’ podcast, The Dillinger Escape Plan sticksman Billy Rymer has confirmed that he’s tracked at least “a whole album’s worth of material”, including the already released ‘New White Extremity’.
You can read a small excerpt from the podcast where Rymer discusses his work with Glassjaw towards their elusive third album below:
“I recorded a record for them that’s probably due to come out sometime like 2036, I’m thinking. I would think somewhere between then and… yeah. No, hopefully it will be out next year; I’m not exactly sure what… I don’t know how much they want me talking about that cause they’re very private with their stuff and their business, but I tracked a bunch of songs for them, a whole album’s worth of material, and I guess they’re just waiting to see how they’re going to release it. As far as playing live, it’s definitely a possibility.”
You can listen to the podcast in full via its official website (here).
Throughout the year, Glassjaw have played a selection of new and yet-to-be-released songs, presumably from the band’s forthcoming album, which included an intimate show at London’s The Old Blue Last in January. New songs that have been performed live have included the tentatively titled ‘Shira’, ‘Neo’, ‘Metal’, ‘Post Apocalyptic’, and ‘Abigados’.
More details surrounding the band’s third studio album will be confirmed as and when it develops.
