    I’m gonna fight against every instinct and not listen to anything else they release until next Friday. This album experience is too important to me.

    Yep. Heavy Glassjaw is the best Glassjaw.

    Do they use 7 strings? or what tuning is this?

    Honestly I always thought they were just 6-string/Drop D. It's the distortion or guitar tone that makes it sound heavy as shit.

    Anyone know if they're doing any fun pre-order bundles or anything?

    Tight. Real tight. Loving the Deftones vibe this track gives me.

    take me over Supporter

    Sounds so much like Deftones, which isn't at all a bad thing.

    Thanks for the update, so excited for this album. I’m going to wait for the full thing to formulate an opinion but I wish there was some vinyl in the bundles they posted on their website
     
  12. Never listened to Glassjaw... but I really like this.

    I may just be really bad at this internet thing, but how come I'm not seeing an option to preorder the physical CD? When I click on the link for Material Control, it only seems to offer the digital download, but some of the bundles include a CD copy.

    Constant horror and bone-deep dissatisfaction.

    Love this Mu Empire-esque atmosphere.

    Amazon has a CD-only pre-order. For whatever reason they don't seem to have that on their official site.

    That’s so weird. The Amazon one was the only one I was able to find, but I’d much rather buy it from them direct.

    Really tempted to listen to this but don't have earphones and am trying to stay patient for the album. I can wait 4 more days..... I think.

    It's pretty good on 1st listen. Classic Glassjaw in most regards. Heavy, has kind of a strange structure, and has moments of catchiness amidst all the chaos. Also, a guitar solo???

    Exactly what I felt. Shall be interesting to hear what the entirety of the album sounds like.

    Listening to this at work may have been a mistake because now I just want to tear things apart.
