Glassjaw’s Daryl Palumbo: ‘Full-length records are becoming irrelevant’

Band cast doubt on whether they will ever release a third studio LP

Glassjaw have said they have no plans to put out a third album, saying that “full-length records are becoming irrelevant”.

The Long Island hardcore band have released a series of singles since they reconciled in 2005 and have also been giving away vinyl EPs at their live shows, but have not released a full-length album since 2002’s ‘Worship And Tribute’.

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”.

Glassjaw have also announced two warm-up shows for their appearance at the Reading And Leeds Festivals in August. The band will play Glasgow O2 ABC on August 25 and Stoke Sugarmill on August 26.
