Glass Cloud Release InfoGLASS CLOUD TO RELEASE DEBUT FULL-LENGTH ALBUM 'THE ROYAL THOUSAND' ON JULY 3, 2012 REVEALS TRACKLISTING, ALBUM ART AND ANNOUNCES UPCOMING SCREAM IT LIKE YOU MEAN IT TOUR

Equal Vision Records will release Glass Cloud’s debut full-length album, The Royal Thousand, on July 3, 2012.

The band’s remarkable caliber of musical proficiency and creativity shines on The Royal Thousand, offering a more organic and ambient interpretation of heavy music, straying from the typical structure of breakdowns by incorporating layers upon layers of dark chords, swells and unique, atmospheric arrangements.

Jerry Roush (ex-Of Mice & Men, ex-Sky Eats Airplane) stands at the forefront of Glass Cloud, displaying his most diverse vocal stylings and tones yet, with a balanced blend of ferocious screams and soaring cleans. Perfectly framing the mesmerizing frontman is the impressive technical musicianship of 8-string guitarist Josh Travis (The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza), and Berklee College of Music graduates: drummer Chad Hasty and bassist Travis Sykes.

The Royal Thousand was recorded in Escondido, CA at Lambesis Studios, with Josh Travis also serving as producer. The record is currently being mixed/mastered at The Machine Shop by Will Putney [For Today, Chiodos, Like Moths To Flames]. Two songs off of the forthcoming album, “White Flag” and “Counting Sheep” are already available via digital retailers such as iTunes and Amazon and a lyric video for “White Flag” can also be seen HERE.

Glass Cloud is currently on the Road To Metal Fest Tour with Iwrestledabearonce, Molotov Solution and The Greenery, with the entire tour package performing in Worcester, MA at The Palladium this weekend. Glass Cloud will perform on Sunday, April 22nd at 2:15pm. Also performing on the festival’s main stage on Sunday is fellow Equal Vision Records' band Texas In July at 4:15pm.

Both Glass Cloud and Texas In July have also just been announced as performers on the 2012 Scream It Like You Mean It Tour, which will be headlined by another EVR labelmate – We Came As Romans. Tour dates for the full US summer run are yet to be announced, but the complete lineup is available at screamitlikeyoumeanit.com. All upcoming tour dates, as well the tracklisting for The Royal Thousand, can be seen below.

Definitely excited for this. Makes me want to think this is just a tweaked Sky Eats Airplane. Jerry is an awesome vocalist.

Album artwork could've been better though

Hopefully they re-recorded the songs we've heard so far since they sounded like shit. Songwriting was kickass, but the production seriously lacked.

sort of excited for this, but white flag isn't as "different" or 'diverse" as advertised by a long shot.
