AMEN Drummer To Guest On GLASSJAW CD!

GLASSJAW drummer Larry Gorman has reportedly been sidelined by producer Ross Robinson during the recording sessions for the group's upcoming sophomore CD and is said to have been replaced by AMEN skinsman Shannon Larkin for the remainder of the album's tracking process. In a move that mirrors his actions during the recording sessions for GLASSJAW's debut CD, 2000's Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Silence (when Ross insisted on the last-minute removal of GLASSJAW's then-drummer and addition of ex-YOUTH OF TODAY/CIV sticksman Sammy Siegler, on loan from RIVAL SCHOOLS), Robinson reportedly felt that Gorman's performance during the pre-production stage and the early album recordings wasn't “on fire” enough to qualify for inclusion on the upcoming album, thus warranting Larry's exclusion from the recording process. It is believed that Gorman is still part of the GLASSJAW line-up, and he is expected to join the rest of the group 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. GLASSJAW's first album since the group's “amicable” split with Roadrunner Records last month (after a long-running dispute with the company), the as-yet-untitled effort is expected to surface through Ross' I Am Recordings via a partnership with an as-yet-undisclosed major label in the summer. Among the working song titles that are tentatively set to appear on the forthcoming CD are the following:

01. Ape Dos Mil
02. Deriving of Incredible Styles
03. Cosmopolitan Blood Loss
04. Must Have Run All Day
05. El Mark
06. Neo Tokyon
07. Tip Your Bartender
08. Trailerpark Jesus
