    Glassjaw have announced an anniversary vinyl collection. The full press release can be found below.

    Glassjaw, the legendary and often imitated New York post-hardcore band, has announced a 20+ year anniversary collection including seminal records 2000’s Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Silence, 2002’s Worship And Tribute and for the first time, a live album from their legendary 2011 The Forum London set called Live At The Forum. It is a tour-exclusive three-piece vinyl set (not a bundle) only accessible with a separately sold ticket. In typical Glassjaw fashion, this vinyl collection will only be available for a limited time and in limited quantities. The pre-sale for the vinyl will go live July 9, and ticket-holders will pick up their purchased vinyl at the 20+ Year Anniversary shows they attend. Visit Glassjaw.com next Friday, July 9, at 12pm ET to participate. 
    
    Upon its release in the summer of 2002, Worship And Tribute was supposed to close with their song “Convectuoso,” but due to existing strife and legalities with the band’s previous label, Glassjaw was forced to strike it from their final composition. Twenty years later, the band has since gained back the rights to “Convectuoso,” and on the new reissue, Glassjaw fans will hear Worship And Tribute as the band originally intended. 
    
    Live At The Forum, included in the three-piece vinyl set is the band’s first official live release. Taken from their legendary 2011 London Forum set, the album’s tracklisting includes the original setlist (minus the encore) which is comprised of songs from both EYEWTKAS and Worship And Tribute, as well as 2011’sOur Color Green EP. The band will return to the O2 London Forum on May 27 and 28, 2022 as part of newly announced 20+ Year Anniversary tour dates. 
    
    The now 22-date, 15-city tour will kick off March 2, 2022, for two nights in Los Angeles, making stops in San Francisco, Denver, Austin, Atlanta, Chicago, Philadelphia, Brooklyn and more, with added dates in London and Pomona, CA (full dates below). Select cities will feature back-to-back nights with one album performance per night, while others will tackle both albums in one fell swoop with an intermission in between—full dates and info below with tickets on sale now at Glassjaw.com.

    Their vinyl releases always piss me off lol. Sorry I can't make it to the SoHo pizza shop to get 1 of 36 pressed vinyls with the purchase of a gluten free pesto pie...

    As someone once posted here: Glassjaw: a merch store that occasionally plays shows.

    Managed to grab tickets for both London shows. Surprised at how easy it was...

    No worries, I thought they sell out within minutes but they're still available.

    It doesn't surprise me actually. I saw them do one night at Brixton Academy about three years ago and it wasn't close to being sold out. And that was with them doing offers and slashing prices weeks beforehand.

    I've got tickets for the first night. Told myself I wouldn't bother with the second night because I can't afford it and I've seen them play most of those songs anyway. The longer they're available though, the stronger the temptation...

    That’s a valid point.

    This is my first time seeing them so it makes sense to go to both shows. I’ll just have to make a weekend of it.

    On another note... has anyone else seen the prices for the vinyl?!

    It's definitely not what I expected that's for sure... but I'm not that surprised.

    Yeah and I didn't think my wife would be down with buying a $200 vinyl set with concert tickets and having to fly to Austin...but damn...I was talking about it and she was totally down...if we're all still here in March happy and healthy I'll finally get to see Glassjaw and get that vinyl...
