Progressive hardcore quintet Glassjaw have written at least four new songs for their forthcoming sophomore album, and they are expected to enter a recording studio in the spring, according to a spokesperson at the band's label, Roadrunner Records.
Ross Robinson (Korn, Slipknot, Amen) is signed on to record and produce the as-yet-untitled album, which is the follow-up to the band's debut, Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Silence, released earlier this year. Robinson produced that album at his Indigo Ranch studios in Malibu, California, however it's doubtful whether the new material will be recorded there.
Two previously released though roughly recorded tracks, "Convectuoso" (which originally appeared on the English import single "Ry Ry's Song") and "Midwestern Stylings" (a remix of which is found on the Sybiotic/Fadeaway compilation The Best Comp in the World), will get a makeover when the Long Island, New York, band re-enters the studio. Both are expected to be included on the new album.
Glassjaw singer Daryl Palumbo, guitarists Justin Beck and Todd Weinstock, bassist Manuel Ragoonan Carrero and drummer Larry Gorman spent most of this year touring, most notably with the Deftones. The group recently returned home from a six-week European tour with Soulfly.
