In support of Material Control, Glassjaw’s first LP in 15 years, the post-hardcore band from Long Island has been on tour with fellow New Yorkers, Quicksand – making fans very happy. On the heels of their brand-new video, “Golgotha” (released in June), the guys have been making their way across the country, with current stops in California.
Prior to their show at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles, Daryl Palumbo, Justin Beck, Travis Sykes, and Chad Hasty treated Orange County to a taste of some solid old-school sounds. The July 20 show at The Observatory, in Santa Ana, opened with strong sets from Spotlights and Quicksand leading into the heavy rock screams that Glassjaw is famous for.
Palumbo commanded the stage with Beck and Sykes holding things down on either side, while Hasty set the pace. With a mixture of their favorites, recent songs such as "New White Extremity" had the crowd roaring, proving to be just what they wanted.
Glassjaw’s hardcore sound, while evolving throughout the years, remains intact and is a prime example of why the fans are so dedicated to the genre. This band is stronger than ever which has longtime listeners utterly electrified.
Check out some exclusive photos from the show up above.
