Glassjaw Return with New Single

It’s been 13 years since Long Island’s Glassjaw released their last studio album (2002’s Worship and Tribute). With that being said, it didn’t necessarily mean that the band had been on hiatus since that last record. Instead of full-length albums, they decided to forgo the typical 15 tracks and just release a couple of EPs in its place. On Tuesday (Dec. 1), things changed when the band released their first new song in over a decade; “New White Extremity.”

The new song made its official debut early Tuesday morning on NPR. NPR, like many other music publications, are teasing that this might be the lead single off of the group’s highly anticipated third studio album. In NPR’s quick write-up about the song, and the band, they claim that this is a “promise of a new, as-yet-untitled record, with no release date, no label information and no band line-up other than founding guitarist Justin Beck.”

While there has been no official confirmation about a new album, Glassjaw frontman Daryl Palumbo did reveal to the publication that this is a song for those who waited patiently for the band’s return. “This is a song about walking out of your front door. Thanks for the [patience] and we hope you enjoy.”
