Biography

Long Island, NY (1993 – present)

Glassjaw is a highly influential band from Long Island, NY. They formed in the summer of 1993 after Palumbo and Beck met each other at camp. They recorded some demos before releasing the EP “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang” in 1997, and recorded their first full length album “Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Silence” in 2000 on Roadrunner Records. The record brought the band out of Long Island and into the hands of a dedicated grass-roots following. The band has been influential in the progression of the underground music scene in the eastern United States and United Kingdom and on the post-hardcore genre, and are known for their intense live shows and constant line-up changes.

Their sophomore album “Worship and Tribute” was released in 2002 on Warner Brothers Records. Although it received some MTV airtime, a Grammy nomination and a peak at #82 on the Billboard top 200, “Worship and Tribute” was a departure from the debut and was met with mixed reviews from fans. Since then, Glassjaw have not recorded any new material, releasing the digital-only EP “El Mark” in 2005, a release that consisted of three unused songs from the “Worship and Tribute” sessions.

In 2005, all members spare Palumbo and Beck left the band for reasons which remain unclear. It is supposed that they left involuntarily.
