Glasvegas have renamed their third album ‘Later… When The TV Turns To Static’.
The Glaswegian band named the new album after one of the tracks set to feature on the record, which is due out next year (2013). They made the announcement on their Twitter yesterday (November 24).
Last month, frontman James Allan told NME that the band’s third album would be called ‘Whoever Shouts The Loudest’. However, it appears the band has had a change of heart. The record, the follow-up to 2011’s ‘Euphoric Heartbreak’, was self-produced by Allan in Glasgow.
Speaking to NME recently, Allan tackled the issue of their second album flopping commercially and Glasvegas being dropped by their record label, Columbia, as a result of the poor sales. “It’s hard for any artist to really understand why someone would have a connection to their passion,” said Allan. “There are records I didn’t like at first but grew to love over time – ‘Euphoric…’ may be one of those for other people. They’ve just got to get to know it better.”
Meanwhile, Glasvegas are readying themselves for a UK December tour. Kicking off at London’s Garage on December 1, the band will play Manchester, Newcastle, Inverness, Aberdeen, Glasgow and Dundee before finishing in Dumfries (10).

London Garage (December 1)
