Glassjaw have returned with new song ‘New White Extremity’, said to be taken from their first new album since 2002.
The US hardcore band’s last album was ‘Worship and Tribute’, released thirteen years ago. Though the band have released three EPs since then, a full length album has appeared less likely with each passing year.
In 2012 Glassjaw said they have no plans to put out a third album, saying that “full-length records are becoming irrelevant”.
Speaking to Kerrang, singer Daryl Palumbo said: “People are so hung up on us not having a full-length out that they’re overlooking the fact that record labels are becoming increasingly irrelevant, that full-length records are becoming irrelevant and the whole album/tour cycle is pretty irrelevant.”
He added that the band want to “put music out as it occurs and not bore people with 15 songs”.
However, NPR today (December 1) debuted ‘New White Extremity’ and with it a “promise of a new, as-yet-untitled record, with no release date, no label information and no band line-up other than founding guitarist Justin Beck.”
However, Palumbo did have this to say about the track: “This is a song about walking out of your front door. Thanks for the [patience] and we hope you enjoy.”
