Glassjaw - Material Control info

2017-11-15 by StrizzMatik | 246 Comments
A listing appeared on Amazon that appears to confirm the title, tracklisting, and release date of Glassjaw's long-awaited 3rd LP, titled Material Control along with a $11.98 pre-order option. Several hours later the listing was taken down at the request of Century Media, along with several posts from fans on Twitter and Instagram following emails from the label asking that they be removed. Apparently Amazon goofed on this one.

The following day, several people on Instagram and Facebook posted pictures showing that they had received a box set of 10 7" flexi discs of the new record, with tracks "Bastille Day" and title track "Material Control" being unlisted as they are instrumental interludes. In the following days, people who have ordered merch or tickets from MerchDirect have been receiving copies of random singles from the record in the mail on flexi disc. The band is also hosting a listening party for Material Control on Thanksgiving night in LA https://chorus.fm/news/glassjaw-announce-material-control-listening-party/

The band is currently uploading teaser videos on Instagram for each song, so far we have videos for the title track instrumental, NWE, Citizen, and Golgotha. As of November 23rd, Material Control is also now available for pre-order from iTunes Australia with a due date of 12/1/17, with "Shira" being made available immediately as first single.

Official Tracklisting:

1.) new white extremity
2.) shira
3.) citizen
4.) golgotha
5.) strange hours
6.) bastille day
7.) pompeii
8.) bibleland 6
9.) closer
10.) my conscience weighs a ton
11.) material control
12.) cut and run

Judging from the songs that they played live already, it's going to be a pretty even mix of everything they've done. Sounds like a really heavy Coloring Book in a lot of songs, really heavy NY post-hardcore vibe a'la Mind Over Matter and Stillsuit.

More info:

- Chad (current touring drummer) recorded a song with them, but it's not known whether it's on the album or not.

"So should I try listening to Glassjaw now? They seem to be a big deal."

I think they the most overrated band in the post hardcore genre. They are a major hit or miss band for me. With that being said, if you haven't already, at least check out Worship and Tribute. Songs like Tip Your Bartender, Mu Empire, and Radio Cambodia are fantastic and are worth checking out.

Lol alrighty pal. Sorry I don't participate in the Glassjaw circle jerk and declare Worship and Tribute as the pinnacle of post hardcore music. I dont think the album is perfect, I think songs like Ape Dos Mil and Trailer Park Jesus are slow, out of place and they mess with the flow of the album. Of course my opinion is subjective, I'm not saying that my opinion is the right one. All I'm saying is that calling it flawless is rather bold and rather silly.

Won't ever miss out on a chance to hype Glassjaw. It's hard for me to understand how anyone who has given their music a good listen could see them as overrated, they provide a huge well of depth in how they attack songwriting and sound-layering. It says a lot when some of my absolute favorite tunes from a band are on an unreleased EP mix("G is for Glassjaw"). I can't think of any equivalent band to match their diverse output in the post-hardcore genre, from aggressive to softer tunes, they have found ways to stay ahead of the game and relevant. This was very clearly proven with Coloring Book, I can't imagine any other band in the genre capable of writing songs that sound anywhere near similar to "Gold", "Vanilla Poltergeist Snake", and "Daytona White". Who else writes nearly as forward-thinking as them? Hope this comes out tomorrow, I will freak :D

There's a crappy rip floating around from WUE's stream if anyone wants it, I would suggest waiting. First impressions - album is really short, dark, dissonant, heavy and probably the most atonal thing Glassjaw has ever done, and it rules

I think all of their albums have tracks I press skip on occasionally without actually affecting my outlook on the album as a whole.

From what I've heard, it's being described as what the follow-up to W&T would have sounded like mixed with OCG. I'm stoked as shit, even if I wanted more songs like Stations of The New Cross, which I consider to be their best work.

StrizzMatik

Honestly sounds like a little bit of every album - it's got the darkness and aggression of EYEWTKAS and OCG, the progressive melodies / structures of W&T and the rhythmic groove / experimentation of CB. I'm loving it so far
