This Fall, the band will be touring in support of the new EP while on The Chariot’s final tour, where Glass Cloud will debut some of the new songs live – as well as performing select fan favorites from their debut full-length album, The Royal Thousand (2012).

“This [EP] is hands down the most aggressive, angriest, and heaviest material we have created. I seriously cannot wait to play some of this stuff live.” Travis notes of the new material. “Playing each night alongside The Chariot…we obviously got to bring it.”

Glass Cloud features vocalist Jerry Roush, nine-string guitarist Josh Travis, bassist Travis Sykes and drummer Chad Hasty. All upcoming tour dates and the band’s EP tracklisting can be found below.
