Glasvegas are back in the US and the band’s S/T release is in stores today! The band celebrated their release with an apperance on Letterman last night and are hitting the road for a few dates across the US this month. The physical album will include two bonus tracks: “The Pretties Thing on Saltecoats Beach” and “Everybody’s Got to Learn Sometime” a cover of the Korgies track.
One listen to this incredible album and it’s easy to see why everyone is talking about Glasvegas. Proclaimed by NME as “Britan’s Best New Band,” the combination of their incredibly sonic and layered music, along with James Allan’s heartbreaking lyrics and vocals has the band poised to win over the US as well. Glasvegas was co produced by singer James Allan and Rich Costey (Franz Ferdinand, Interpol, Muse) in Brooklyn, NY over the Winter and Spring of 2008. The band also recently stole away to Transylvania to record a Christmas EP, which was availble over the holidays. Below find the tour dates, more will be announced soon.
