Glassing to release their ferocious and blackened new EP »Dire And Sulk« on August 26th through Medication Time Records and Brutal Panda Records

Austin, Texas based post-metal/post-hardcore maestros Glassing will release their ferocious and blackened new EP »Dire And Sulk« on August 26th, 2022 worldwide through Medication Time Records (vinyl/cassette) and Brutal Panda Records (digital). »Dire And Sulk« is their first recording since 2021’s critically acclaimed full-length »Twin Dream«.

Austin’s Glassing have spent the past half-decade crashing fractured, damaged noise rock into shimmering shoegaze and post-metal, coming up with songs that are equally as likely to inspire wide-eyed terror as crying in the middle of the pit. Their third full-length, last year’s »Twin Dream«, saw the band striking their cleanest balance between those poles yet by pushing both to their extremes. It contained some of their most starkly beautiful songs to date, but it also cranked its heaviest passages to an even more feverish pitch.

It’s that latter mode that Glassing taps into on »Dire« and »Sulk«, the two tunes that comprise a new 7-inch/cassingle on Medication Time and Brutal Panda Records. Perhaps that’s thanks to the infusion of fresh blood in the form of drummer Scott Osment (Deaf Club, Weak Flesh). Osment’s first recording with Glassing sees him pummeling the songs into terrifyingly heavy shape. Guitarist Cory Brim and vocalist/bassist Dustin Coffman match him for intensity, making »Dire And Sulk« the most direct, punishing Glassing release to date. (Words by Brad Sanders)

»Dire And Sulk« was produced by Glassing and Andrew Hernandez, recorded and mixed by Andrew Hernandez at 12th Street Studios and mastered by Will Killingsworth at Dead Air. Artwork was designed by Piper Ferrari.
