Glass City Vice
New things a comin’

It’s been a while and we have been extra busy in the studio since before Christmas with our good friend Mike Lord. It feels like ages that we have been working on these new tracks and to be honest it has been ages. We are really proud of what we have come up with and we hope that when they hit your ears you will agree too.

So a bit about the process…We had a group decision back in September that the music we were making wasn’t really what we wanted to be playing anymore. This was by no means because we disliked it or thought we had to play it for anyone but ourselves, but really because we were casting aside some ideas that felt a lot more natural to us in an attempt to try and keep with the songs we have released in the past. So I guess this next EP will be the start of a new Glass City Vice in terms of genre. We are still Glass City Vice and our influences that we have had all these years still remain the same somewhere in our music but they have just had a few add ons which may have dominated the music we write now (I hope this is all making sense…).

SO we thought it would be cool to post a few influences on here, maybe a few videos so you can listen and maybe give you a better idea of what to expect from this EP. At the moment we have been listening to A LOT of Death Cab For Cutie and I really think they are a main influence on this EP as well as bands like Manchester Orchestra, Brand New, Mansions, Bad Books and we have even re discovered a lot of Beatles songs. If you haven’t heard of some of those bands then you really should get in to them! Here are a few links to some videos:

We are really excited about the prospect of this new EP and have already confirmed some things we never thought would be achievable for later in the year. I’m sure we will be able to share them with you soon but at the moment we have to keep our mouths shut (which believe me is really really hard). We have seen a lot of good things happen in British Rock music recently and we hope that we can be apart of that and this ever changing world that is the music industry.

Ever since we started as a band we have recorded in Brighton but we decided to go with a producer in London called Max Heyes at a studio called Lynch Mob. He really knows his stuff and has a massively diverse repertoire ranging from 50 Cent to Jamiroquai to Paul Weller and we are hugely excited to see what he can bring to the table when we record with him. We are also lucky enough to have a bit more time in the studio than we would usually have so we can get creative in the process and hopefully there will be a few odd sounds coming out of your speakers in a few months time.

In terms of release dates…we don’t know. We really aren’t sure where this EP is going to take us, if anywhere at all but we want it to be the right time and to have the right team in place. Hopefully it will be sooner rather than later but there will be opportunities to hear the songs. Of course touring plans are already being thought about because we love being on the road and we have also been confirmed for our first major festival date which is hugely exciting and will be announced soon!

This has just been a massive blab but hopefully a slightly interesting one. We are all eternally grateful for those that follow our band and care enough to keep coming back. See you in the near future and bring on 2014!!

Andy Hull: Something Written In E

Well, just to me
You’ve got the brightest face
And I miss you so much it’s a fact.

You sing me to sleep
With your non-singing voice
And you light up my hallways at night.

One our biggest influences…
