    Glassjaw did a track-by-track of their new album over at NPR:

    When we were doing Worship And Tribute [the band’s second album, released in 2002], the label was like, “Yo, we need Chris Lord-Alge [engineer who’s worked on records by Prince, My Chemical Romance and Tina Turner] to mix this s***. This is your f****** hit.” We’re like, “All right, crazy guys, we’re cool with Alge mixing it. Whatever you guys want, spend the money.”

    We walk in a room and I’m like, “Yo, gotta bring that bass up, man, bring the bass up.” He kind of just moves his hand just to shut me the f*** up. I’m like, “Yo, you gotta bring that bass up because that whole riff is the bass.” He goes, “Listen here, kid, let me guess: you’re the f****** bassist,” and I go, “Actually, d***head, I’m the f****** guitarist.” [Laughs.]

    Album slays. I've got a nice 2017 playlist going in Spotify of this album and 68's Two Parts Viper (probably my AOTY).

    He wrenches on it. He thinks it's his.

    Judging from interviews, I can't tell if Beck is the realest motherfucker or just an asshole. He seems NY to the bone.

    Matrial Control friggin' rips.

    Met him once and from what I could tell? Just a very real motherfucker. Not rude at all.

    wrap yourself in petals for armor.

    As someone from NY, and Long Island specifically - that's just how many of us talk. Very directly. And with lots of cursing. xD

    What a cool interview, I really need to sit down and listen to this album.

    hopelessly yours, Alabama

    All their interviews have been hilarious and so (seemingly) candid.

    Gotta dig more into this album.

    D'oh! Prestigious

    That's a tight article with some cool insights from the band. Also, loving the album so far, listened to it a few times these past few days, though I didn't seem to have time for heavy music now.
