Recent live reviews are clearly showing proof that Glassjaw's co-headlining tour with Quicksand is one of the best for the Summer. After a shocking album drop in December, the New York post-hardcore band decided it was time to take the new music out on the road across the US.
This Friday (07/20), the tour touches down for one night in Southern California at the Observatory in Santa Ana. Fans who are unable to attend the Friday night show can catch Glassjaw at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles on Saturday (07/21) for an off-tour show with special guests JPEGMAFIA and Hesitation Wounds, which features Touché Amoré's Jeremy Bolm on vocals.
Tickets are still available for both dates and can be purchased below:
In case you are just hearing the name Glassjaw for the first time, Glassjaw is a post-hardcore band from New York that was formed in 1993 and was a major part of the Long Island music scene in the early 2000s. The band is fronted by vocalist Daryl Palumbo and guitarist Justin Beck.
Glassjaw holds a strong reputation for their ever so entertaining live performances and sadly their lineup changes. The biggest lineup blow to fans came when long time members Manuel Carrero (bass) and Durijah Lang (drums) left the band at the same time in July 2015. Both Lang and Carrero were replaced by two former Glass Cloud members in bassist Travis Sykes and drummer Chad Hasty.
The band took a two year hiatus in the early-mid 2000's, but during their active years and to date Glassjaw have created six demos, four EP's and three studio albums, which includes their December 2017 release, Material Control via Century Media. Fans were skeptical to the new album at first seeing as it was their first full length without guitarist Todd Weinstock but quickly warmed up to it.
