VIDEO: Glassjaw – “Stations of the New Cross” (Live)

Since their inception, Glassjaw’s strength has always centered around a progressive approach to aggressive alt-rock and hardcore-derived music. While the majority of their songs have been go-for-the-throat rockers, it was the imaginative way the band doled out their fierce musical lacerations that stuck a chord with audiences. With the release of their new Coloring Book EP, however, the group has revealed a more ambitious agenda by settling on a surprisingly patient and reflective approach that relies more on developing a sense of space and constructing textured soundscapes than it does on brute force. Of all the EP’s tracks, the atmospheric “Stations of the New Cross” might be the most impressive, a slow-burning space rock jam that is by turns mesmerizing and thunderous. Enjoy.
