Thursday GlassJaw

People, people! This might be the biggest announcement of 2008. There has been a band secretly in the making for the past couple of years, a group that calls themselves a “power-violence grind-core band.” They are known as United Nations–but that isn’t the big story here. Though all of the band members have yet to be confirmed (because of contracts to their respective bands, and all that other legal jargon), we do know that Geoff Rickley, lead singer of Thursday, and Daryl Palumbo, lead singer of Glassjaw, Head Automatica, and a billion other side projects, collaborated to make United Nations. And in Radiohead fashion, they’ve left eager fans with an “oh by the way” type of album release–as in, oh by the way we have an album produced and mixed, and it’s being released on September 9th. Yes, Eyeball is releasing this 11 track monster; hope it doesn’t suck like a certain other Thursday release.

Ben Koller from Converge is also in the mix, and it is rumored that Christopher “Chree” Conger from The Number 12 Looks Like You is drumming for the UN. No tour is planned, so who knows if we’ll ever get to see this stuff live. You can stream all their songs on their myspace now.

    You hyped it up too much for me, man. It does sound interesting, but I don’t know about the biggest news of the year. Probably to quite a few people it is though. For me, it’s the…gasp…new Metallica. :)

    I’m a huge fan of both Thursday and Glassjaw, so this made biggg news for me. And the fact that it came outta nowhere shocked the hell outta me.
