It’s been a minute or two, but we got news for ya.
First off, the Glasspack has just finished recording and mixing our 4th full-length release entitled “Dirty Women.” the Pack was given full creative control over the entire project and you will notice. A release date is not set but will be sometime this year, brought to you by Small Stone Records, which now has a powerful team of 35 bands around the globe.
The recording was done during Derby Week at Louisville’s magnificent Downtown Recording Studios. Nick Stevens of Downtown Recording and Dirty Dave produced it, Eric McManus played drums and Chad Omen on the bass.
Guests included Adam Neal from the Hookers, Matt Jaha of Nixon, and the good old Brian Foor of past Glasspack fame, now playing in a band called the Gaj Mustafa Cell.
In other news, Dave has been chosen to write a Louisville scene report for Los Angeles based video magazine T.V. Eye. Previous copies were only on video, upcoming issues will include a magazine, which will feature Dave’s article on the current state of Louisville’s hard rock scene. Past videos included such bands as QOTSA, High on Fire, Mudhoney, The Melvins, Tomahawk,
and many more. The video with Dave’s article should be available sometime late this year, more than likely available at Ear-X-Tacy because the video has worldwide distribution.
As for shows, the Glasspack has confirmed a headlining spot at the opening party and Jefferson St. Festival for the national Mountain Dew Action Sports Tour. The festival will shut down Jefferson St. between First and Second Streets in downtown Louisville on Wed. June 21. Also on the bill is Philly trio Pearls and Brass (Drag City Records.) The festival goes on all day for free outside, with ramps and dirt on the street for all ages. The later show with the bands will be in Coyote’s bar and is 18&OVER.
