Glassjaw will release their first album in 15 years, Material Control on December 1st.

Their last releases were a pair of EPs in 2011, which were their first releases in 9 years at the time.

They kick ass. Anyone like them around here?

OH MY GOD FUCKING FINALLY

Worship and Tribute is one of my top 10-ish albums ever. Our Color Green and Coloring Book are also incredible. That song they released a while back ("New White Extremity") is just as good as anything they've done. And supposedly Billy Rymer laid down the drums for this album. Unlike the underwhelming ATDI reunion, I have no reason to suspect this will be anything but amazing.

PUMPED

I’m fairly certain I’ve seen you on RYM in a Glassjaw shoutbox before.

So fucking hyped for this. I was pissed I miss their headlining show in Cleveland this month and even more pissed when I saw they played 7 new songs at the show. So this is a relief, holding out hope they come back again some time soon.

Billy Rymer is a fucking amazing drummer and if he joins Glassjaw when Dillinger retires at the end of next month, well that would be a killer matchup.

Oh my god. How do you guys listen to this and not think its an obvious ripoff of incubus? And incubus mostly sucks. These guys sound like a band put together on American Idol to sound like a cover band of Incubus.

C'mon. Anybody have class around here? fuck.

This band sounds absolutely nothing like Incubus. You don't know what you're talking about, Strat. Stick to Father John Misty or Dave Matthews or whatever

and yes they do sound like incubus. I listened to 2/5's of 5 songs and my opinion is valid and correct.

I've heard of this band, but have never listened to anything. After one song, I'm thinking I could really like this.

It's...fine. Without Ward, it's kinda just another Bixler/Rodriguez-Lopez project. But, in any case, I think ROC is a lightning-in-a-bottle record for me. Nothing else ATDI produced in any other session is even in the same universe to my ears. On the other hand, I love everything Glassjaw has ever made (with the exception of their debut album).

Is it just me, or does the mixing seem kinda weird on this? Palumbo's vocals sound really buried.

That new song is awesome, their packages for buying this album are fucking insane though. $65 for the cheapest one, and some of them are fucking nuts like a tattoo of their logo.

This is the band that once released an EP by buying a “Glassjaw pizza” at 1:11 PM at some random pizza shop on Long Island though.

So,

1. This album is very, very good.

2. This album is also very short. Which isn't a bad thing? But after a 15 year gap since their last LP, 12 new songs - one of which was released two years ago, and two of which are short, instrumental, filler tracks - seems a bit paltry.

3. The way they combined their aggressive, energetic Worship and Tribute/Our Color Green sound and their sensual, jazzy Coloring Book sound into one new whole is striking. The album feels a bit experimental. They definitely aren't resting on their laurels or trying to retread worn ground.

4. I love this band, oh my god I love this band.
