The hugely influential Glassjaw are a 4 piece band from Long Island, New York. They've been together since 1993 and although it hasn't all been plain sailing, they have still managed to release some of the best hardcore/metal records in 2000. Notably 'Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Silence' and 'Worship And Tribute'.
There's also a new album on the horizon, to be completed by the end of summer. If you cant wait, get down to Give It A Name, where you can see Glassjaw live and hopefully get a sneak preview of their new material!
