Glasvegas news

I interviewed the band a few years ago (see elsewhere on this blog) and am looking forward to this one...

Glasvegas is back with Later...When The TV Turns To Static, due out in the U.S. on Sept. 3 via their own Go Wow Records/BMG. The third studio album was written and self-produced by lead vocalist/songwriter James Allan. 

First single "If" will be released digitally in the U.S. on July 9

The Scottish band's self-titled '08 debut went platinum in the UK and was nominated for a Mercury Music Prize. 

Allan states "My idea for the song came about during a phone call a while back with my good friend Alan McGee. He was talking to me about something quite difficult that was going on at the time and I said to him, 'Alan, if we didn't go through the bad stuff, we wouldn't recognize the good stuff; it would be invisible to you.'"

Glasvegas is: James Allan (Vocals, Guitar), Rab Allan (Guitar), Paul Donoghue (Bass), Jonna Löffgren (Drums)

U.S. touring info TBA.
