Glassjaw’s release destructive new video for Golgotha

Glassjaw have released a video for their new single Golgotha.

The track originally appeared on Material Control – their first album in 15 years which arrived in December last year via Century Media. 

It’s the follow-up to vocalist Daryl Palumbo, guitarist Justin Beck, bassist Travis Sykes and drummer Chad Hasty’s 2002 record Worship And Tribute.

Prior to the official album reveal, Glassjaw sent out thousands of postcards to their fans who had waited “patiently for new music for over a decade.” The ‘thank you’ packages also doubled as playable vinyl of the new record.

Glassjaw have released the Golgotha video to coincide with the start of their US tour with Quicksand, which will get underway on July 7. 

Following the run of 20 shows, Glassjaw will return to the UK for a show at London’s Brixton Academy and a headline set at the ArcTanGent festival.
