ATP Exclusive: Glassjaw Comment On Recent Re-Release

Glassjaw guitarist Justin Beck, when speaking recently to Alter The Press, commented on the recent re-release of the bands first album 'Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Silence' on Roadrunner Records:

"It's complete shit! We had nothing to do with it. DO NOT BUY IT! It's embarrassing."

  1. This is the exact same way I feel. Roadrunner did nothing for Glassjaw while they were on the label and now that they have made a name for themselves, Roadrunner is trying to make some cash. I'll just get it illegally.

    at least roadrunner productively releases something! glassjaw has promised a new album for over 4 years with no follow-through! sure, its their god given right to do whatever they want, but glassjaw's last tour was a success and they are getting more respect and recognition now than they ever have (now that so many bands have started to release music that sounds like its trying to rip glassjaw off). strike while the iron is hot guys! i've had other favorite bands break up, re-form, re-record and re-tour quicker than this!

    and someone please tell daryl his dj stuff sounds like crap and he needs to get back to what hes good at... on the mic.

  5. They do have other commitments you know. Beck has Merch Direct, Daryl has been recording and touring with Head Automatica and doing a handful of other projects like Sports, House of Blow, United Nations, etc, and Manny and Durijah have Saves the Day.

    They don't have to listen to any of you dumbasses whine and complain just because you're too impatient to wait for for the next album. They don't work for you or answer to you, so just shut up and let them do their thing.

  6. Crazy though how much time those other projects seem to take. Seven fucking years, and I thought my timekeeping was bad. o.O the mind reels.


    Oh GJ, why have you forsaken us?!

  7. Does anyone have any idea how much fucking concentration, time, energy and passion must go into creating the masterpieces they do? Give em a fucking break. they do have a lot of other shit going on (whether it's any good or not is another topic entirely) and it seems like they're taking their time to make this album as badass as possible. At least we know they have some songs! Personally, i actually think a lot of the delay this time is the fact that they're not working with Ross on this one... just putting that out there.
