Latest Glass Cloud News
Below is our complete Glass Cloud news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Epitaph label mates Architects and letlive. will embark on a co-headlining U.S. tour this Spring. They will be joined by Glass Cloud and I The Mighty as support. Sam Carter of Architects states:
"We can't wait to get out with our boys in letlive. we're all big fans of the band as musicians and people! Looking forward to getting back out to America and playing news song from lost forever lost together! Bring your stage diving shoes lets party!"
Jason Aalon Butler of letlive. also shares: "We've been a band for nearly a decade and this is our 2nd proper United States headliner. That being the case, it is a rather significant and pivotal endeavor at once. Now that you know that, you can safely assume how important this tour is to us as well as who we share it with. I've noticed many comments polluting our considerably juvenile cyber spaces inquiring things like 'why would this band tour with this band?' and some other unwarranted entitled opinion on what bands should or should not do with THEIR art. I can sincerely say to you that letlive. plays music for people that want to listen to music with no real concern for specified or claimed genre, while playing that music alongside others that will do the same. In this case, those people go by the monikers of Architects, Glass Cloud, and I the mighty. Call it what you will, we'll keep calling it art. Holler."
Architects will release new album "Lost Forever, Lost Together" on March 11th via Epitaph, recorded in Sweden at Studio Fredman with producers Fredrik Nordström and Henrik Udd. Catch the band's live: More...

Glass Cloud is currently on tour with Silverstein, and the band has now checked in with the following statement about missing the Chicago stop of the tour:
"What up, everybody. I just want to take a minute to say on behalf of the whole band that we are terribly sorry we couldn't play last night in Chicago.
"On the way to our first show with Silverstein in Pontiac, MI, our wheel snapped off of our axle on our van and we had to leave it in Ohio at a repair shop while we threw all of our equipment (and ourselves) in the back of a rental box truck and hauled ass to the show. We made it with just enough time to run in, play our set and immediately back track to Ohio to pick our vehicle and try to make it to Chicago in time. But, unfortunately, we didn't.
"I'd like to say thank you so much to all the dedicated friends who came to hang out with us and picked up some merch at the end of the night anyway. after our amazing experience at the House of Blues on the AP Tour, we were all really excited to play Chicago and were incredibly bummed that we weren't able to. we will do everything in our power to make it up to you all as SOON as it's possible.
"We hope to see the rest of you out at the rest of these upcoming shows! Peace and Light to The Royal Thousand. We see you."
Remaining dates on the tour can be found at the Glass Cloud Facebook profile here.

Glass Cloud has been involved in a van accident while on the AP Fall Tour with Miss May I, The Ghost Inside, Like Moths To Flames, and The Amity Affliction. The band comments:
"To say we've had a rough couple of days would be a massive understatement. Yesterday morning (11-11-12) at 7am, your boys in Glass Cloud took a heavy blow. While driving through Deadman's Pass on the Oregon Trail, we started to drift on a patch of ice and lost traction while trying to regain control. Our van completely turned around 180 degrees and as we were drifting backward, our wheel clipped a rock and flipped our van and trailer onto the drivers side.
"The crash shattered all the windows on that side leaving us all laying in broken glass. It also partially caved in the roof, shattered the windshield, and caved in the entire sheet metal siding on the drivers side. Our trailer has a twisted frame and tongue, bent up wheels, the back gate is pinched shut, the roof is pushed out and everything BUT our equipment is pretty much unsalvageable (thank god for flight cases on our instruments).
"Our drummer, Chad, was driving with our tour manager Eric in the passenger seat and Myself (Travis), Josh, Jerry and our merch girl Jess in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th row respectively. When we gained our bearings and realized that we were all still able to move, we helped each other climb out through the front windshield and into the snowy Oregon moutainside. We gathered what little of our belongings we could from the wreckage and got a ride from a tow truck to the town of Pendleton located 20 miles from the crash.
"As of now, I am writing this from my phone in an Econolodge trying to figure out what we need to do to get back on the road, meet up with our good friends on The AP Tour and continue playing our music across the country for the last two weeks of shows.
"In this video and here in the description you can find out exactly how to help us in this time and get us back on the road to finish this tour and make it home safely. When we get home, the real troubles will begin with finding transportation for our gear and a replacement for our van and trailer. We appreciate any help we can get from anybody during this hellacious time we are going trough and we hope everyone else stays safe and careful during these winter months." More...
