Glassjaw Announce New Album Material Control, Share New Track

Is the fifteen year wait going to be worth it? Sounds like it might be!

Glassjaw Announce New Album Material Control, Share New Track

Glassjaw's new album, Material Control, is coming out December 1, a whole fifteen years after their last record, Worship and Tribute, and six years after their free EP, Coloring Book.

Speculation about this release grew when a mysterious pre-order of the album was briefly visible online and then, suddenly, disappeared. Word of the pre-order quickly spread across Reddit, Twitter and various music blogs and websites. Fans began to cautiously believe that a third album would drop soon.

The band fuelled more speculation when fans across the globe began to randomly receive mysterious postal service packages from them. The packages included thousands of postcards sent to express the band’s gratitude to the dedicated fanbase who have waited patiently for new music for well over a decade. These ‘thank you’ postcards doubled as playable vinyl of each new track from Material Control.

We're beyond excited about this record.

Ahead of the album’s release, they’ve also unveiled a new track called Shira. Check it out:
