Today, experimental post-hardcore outfit Glasslands has shared their caustic new single “Mad”, which will appear on their upcoming album The Deep out 4.8.22 on Velocity Records. You can pre-order merch and vinyl bundles here. This concept album follows fictional protagonist Mr. Creeps, who resides in the titular location The Deep. Dealing with concepts of failure, insecurity, grief and depression, The Deep chronicles the main character’s journey of self examination and gives the listener the opportunity to draw parallels to their own life. The band consists of Josh Kincheloe (vocals), Jordan DiSorbo (guitar), and Brandon Mullins (drums) and specializes in meshing heavy riffs with atmospheric post-rock to create a sound that is uniquely their own.

“Mad” emphasizes the bands aggressive approach but also highlights a keen melodic sensibility. The riffs are angular and supported by a lush layer of percussion and an ethereal soundscape that adds a palpable darkness to the song. The production of the track stands out as feeling radio-friendly in a way that sets Glasslands apart from their peers but retains the authenticity the group injects into their music. The official video is beautifully shot in black & white and adds a compelling visual narrative to the song. You can stream the track and view the video here.

On the themes of their latest track and their new record, vocalist Josh Kincheloe has this to say:

“This record is all about accepting the worst parts of yourself and facing them head on. ‘Mad’ is me taking my own advice and confronting something I’ve dealt with my whole life.”

Glasslands is currently on the road as part of The Velocity Records tour supporting D.R.U.G.S, Scary Kids Scaring Kids, Secrets and Dead American. Full tour itinerary is listed below. The Deep is out 4.8 on Velocity Records and available for pre-order now.
