Glassjaw rose to prominence in the early aughts, right around the time emo and heavier punk rock gained popularity. (Think My Chemical Romance and all those other bands with jet black-dyed hair.)
Led by singer Daryl Palumbo, the band released two albums, including 2002’s Grammy-nominated “Worship and Tribute,” before going on hiatus in 2004.
Palumbo would then lead the pop-rock band, Head Automatica, with producer Dan the Automator. Palumbo also teamed up with Thursday’s lead singer Geoff Rickly and Converge drummer Ben Koller for the band United Nations. Glassjaw guitarist Todd Weinstock would form the dance-rock band Men, Women & Children.
Though the band has changed members a few times since its original inception, Glassjaw came back with a few EPs in 2011 and returned to the stage.
Earlier this month, the band released a new song called “New White Extremity.” A new album is expected in 2016.
