    Your friendly little forum bot. Staff Member

    This article has been imported from chorus.fm for discussion. All of the forum rules still apply.

    I woke up this morning to a knock on the door only to find a box that reads “Material Control” on the cover and the very recognizable Glassjaw logo. Open it up? There’s ten flexi-discs inside full of new music. I put one on to see for sure, and yep, it’s music. I’ll have to give it a full listen in a little bit. You can check out a photo below and the track listing.

    @Jason Tate Are all 10 duplicates of the whole LP? Or does each contain 1 or 2 songs form the LP?

    I'd like to get excited about a surprising release but I don't want to get Science-Fictioned again in a couple months.

    Just saw your IG story. I have never seen a flexi-disc before. Weird shit.

  12. They are very weird. And a pain in the ass to play.

  13. Box has the track listing as only 10 songs. My copy and paste was bad. Fixed.
     
  14. That's so dog-gone cool.

    So is the above listing of twelve incorrect?

    yooo just take a sharp knife and spin in along the inside hole and it'll fit your standard player
     
  17. It fits fine. They just wobble and it messes with the timing. Usually I put another record under it to help stabilize, but they're still a pain to get right. Hah.
     
  18. This is so rad. Excited to hear your thoughts.

    Randomly mailing out your first full length in 15 years with each track having to be played separately on a hard to play format might just be the most Glassjaw thing ever.

    Yea, that thin vinyl is a difficult material to....control.

    tee hee hee

    I'm sorry I'm sorry I'm sorry I'm just so excited

    I think the only flexi-disc I own was a bonus live track Dine Alone threw into the very, very delayed Alexisonfire farewell tour vinyl boxset for those who were on the original pre-order. Don't think I've ever played it.

    Oh, and very curious and excited for new Glassjaw!
