Glasvegas confirm new LP

Releases

Glasvegas

Glasvegas’s third studio LP now has a title, and that title is ‘Whoever Shouts The Loudest’. The band, who are apparently still independent following an abrupt axing from Sony’s Columbia Records last year, intend to release it in 2013.

Confiding part of its tracklisting to NME, vocalist James Allen said: “The track titles include ‘I’d Rather Be Dead Than Be With You’, ‘All I Want Is My Baby’, ‘Later… When The TV Turns To Static’ and ‘If’. But sorry, I can’t tell you what they’re like yet”.

Touching on Glasvegas’s 2011 record ‘Euphoric Heartbreak’, disappointing sales of which were seemingly the cause of the falling-out with Columbia, Allen added: “It’s hard for any artist to really understand why someone would have a connection to their passion. There are records I didn’t like at first but grew to love over time – ‘Euphoric…’ may be one of those for other people. They’ve just got to get to know it better”.

If you’d like to do just that, how about seeing Allen et al on tour, where I assume they’ll be playing some songs from that record? The band’s just-announced December live dates are here.
