As exclusively reported here on January 5th (read original story here), GLASSJAW have confirmed via the group's official web site at www.siberiankiss.com that AMEN drummer Shannon Larkin has “laid down some tracks” for the former band's upcoming sophomore CD, which is currently being recorded at a Los Angeles studio for a mid-2002 release through Ross' I Am Recordings via a partnership with an as-yet-undisclosed major label. As we indicated in our original report, Larkin was drafted in after producer Ross Robinson deemed GLASSJAW drummer Larry Gorman's performance to be devoid of the kind of “fire” needed to complement the material on the album, thus warranting Larry's exclusion from the recording process. GLASSJAW have also confirmed (as we predicted) that Gorman is in fact still part of the group's line-up, and he is expected to join the rest of the band on the road at the upcoming Snocore trek (also featuring ALIEN ANT FARM and FENIX TX, among other acts), which is set to begin in February.
