Glassjaw

Rival Schools have announced their new LP, Pedals, due on March 8th via Photo Finish/Atlantic. The release will be celebrated that day at Santos Party House as part of a short stint of tour dates for the band. Ticket info is forthcoming. Dates are below.

Pedals is currently up for pre-order at the band's site in various different incarnations (Rival Schools shoes? wow). The band also has a new video from the LP, for "Shot After Shot", which you can watch below.

Meanwhile, Sammy Siegler's old band Glassjaw were the secret guest headliner at Knitting Factory on Sunday (12/12) for the Sons Modern Holiday Party which also featured Unearthly Trance and Ultrageist. Much like they did last year at Maxwell's, Glassjaw's appearance was unannounced as they have a second upcoming show in the near future, January 1st at the sold-out Best Buy Theater. Pictures from the Brooklyn show are in this post.

Glassjaw/Thursday/Acid Tiger member side-project United Nations doesn't have any dates coming up, but both Acid Tiger and Thursday have some.

I Hate Our Freedom is another now-active Thursday side-project. Or to be more specific, they are Joseph Grillo (GARRISON, GOD FIRES MAN) Justin Scurti (MILHOUSE), Scott Winegard (TEXAS IS THE REASON, HOUSE & PARISH) and Tucker Rule (THURSDAY). I Hate Our Freedom plays Maxwell's on Thursday, 12/16 with Something About Death Or Dying who are "a new hardcore band featuring The Gaslight Anthem guitarist Alex Rosamilia."

Tucker Rule has also been playing drums in Murphy's Law lately. Maybe you'll see him behind the kit when Murphy's Law plays Trash Bar on New Years Eve with THE KRAYS, YUPPICIDE, SETBACK, CAUGHT IN A TRAP, and RUNNY.

Rival Schools' last NYC show was opening for Gaslight Anthem at Radio City Music Hall. A set of pictures from their set at that show is in this post too.

More Glassjaw pictures from Knitting Factory (sorry, none of Unearthly Trance or Ultrageist) and all Rival Schools tour dates, pictures and videos, below.

Who?

I wish 100% of these bands would piss off and Quicksand would just come back. Does Rival Schools have any real fans, or just people who miss Quicksand?

Posted by Anonymous | December 15, 2010 12:19 PM

^i love both, but i actually know more rival schools fans

most of my quicksand friends are like me, old jaded hardcore dudes

Definitely a Rival Schools fan but still hoping for that Quicksand reunion!

small Quicksand/BURN set before Supertouch EP release show at Santos Party House in Feb. Gonna be epic.

Quicksand > Gorilla Biscuits > Rival Schools

Actually, Rival Schools does not even belong in the same sentence with those other bands. Does anyone really care about Rival Schools?

Posted by Anonymous | December 15, 2010 12:49 PM

Rival Schools rulez.

Quicksand > Glassjaw > Rival Schools

Posted by Hipster Kris | December 15, 2010 1:34 PM

Quicksand > GB???!?!?! Are you insane??!

Ok, I'm sure we can agree that they are both better than 90% of the bands mentioned around here :)

Quicksand SLIP is one of the best metal/harcore records ever. A classic.

Posted by Anonymous | December 15, 2010 1:49 PM

SLIP was an EMO record though. Before "emo" meant what it does now.

Tidal Arms is opening for Glassjaw at that Best Buy Show

Anyone have the radio city setlist?

Hey 1:50....

NO.

Posted by JT | December 15, 2010 2:27 PM

1:49 is just plain idiotic. Metal Hardcore?!

Go back to your Slipknot CD. You should be listening to the 7" on Revelation, suckaaah.

Stop arguing over genres. Slip is one of the best records of the 90s. Better than Please Hammer Don't Hurt 'em, Shellac at Action Park, Dr. Feelgood and How it Feels to Be Something On.

Shit, it was even better than anything the KLF ever did. That is all that matters.

Seriously. Who cares if this is pre-emo post-hardcore current metal music only made to be listened to by grifters who specialize in short cons? QUICKSAND! WALTER, please get your head out of your bunghole and get the band back together! And get HANDSOME to open. Best tour ever!

That Handsome record is amazing. It's a bummer that no one cares about them.

Posted by Anonymous | December 15, 2010 3:47 PM

Handsome came out at the wrong time when everyone was upset they weren't Helmet or Quicksand.

That record holds up though! It would be great if the kids who are selling out the Best Buy to see Glassjaw all discovered it. Would love to see them live again.

handsome ruled.... i saw that band Fight Amp from NJ and when I complimented one of the guys for sounding like Handsome the guy was like "Hanson??"

Posted by Anonymous | December 15, 2010 5:04 PM

That lone Handsome LP is the shit. Isn't there a supposed "unreleased" Quicksand LP sitting in the vault somewhere? Rival Schools is OK at best.

Posted by Hank | December 15, 2010 5:10 PM

few things

slip is one of the best records ever

i agree with the statement that the handsome record was awesome just came out at a bad time and was not appreciated

the radio set list was about 5 songs 4 new ones off this upcoming record and used for glue which they ended with.

"small Quicksand/BURN set before Supertouch EP release show at Santos Party House in Feb. Gonna be epic."

any truth to this? ..i assume there isn't

Posted by Anonymous | December 15, 2010 5:37 PM

1.6 band, Sweet Diesel, BURN (surprise guest) Supertouch.

Doin' it live on NYU, boyeee.

Can somebody explain to me the appeal of this band?

Witholding my comment for approval? Huh?

Let me also state my love for that Handsome album. Great band. NYC had a good scene going on at that time: Handsome, Orange 9mm, Quicksand, etc... Brownies, Coney Island High, those were the days!

Rival Schools are lame. Not everything needs to be heavy, I listen to many different genres, but Rival Schools was also "made-for-radio" rock.

Gorilla Biscuits at CBGB back in 2005 was one of my favorite shows of the past decade.

What? Slip was not a metal/hardcore record? that's an idiotic thing to say? Slipknot? what? Your comment makes 0 sense.

Posted by Anonymous | December 17, 2010 10:50 PM

Quicksand = Post-hardcore

This is what them, Into Another, Orange 9mm etc etc were all known as during that time.
