Have a look at the first video from Glimmermen’s debut LP I’m Dead, due out on Transduction Records on 9th August.
Glimmemen will play an instore gig in Tower Records on release day, with a full album release gig in Whelan’s the following night, Saturday 10th August.
Formed in 2010 from the ashes of revered Irish bands Boxes (Gavin Cowley, vocals, guitar), Jackbeast (J Bassetti, stand-up bass, vocals) and Holy Ghost Fathers (Phil Murray, drums, vocals), Glimmermen are a stripped-down three piece that take rock and roll back to its primitive core. Having quickly earned a reputation for their intense live shows, the band released their debut EP Satellite People last year to widespread acclaim and comparisons to Television, Pop Group and Mission of Burma.
Decamping to Magpie Cage studio in Baltimore last year as Hurricane Sandy was battering the eastern seaboard, the trio hunkered down with ex-Jawbox frontman J Robbins at the controls to record their debut album. Their intention was to capture the sound of a band playing live in a room to two-inch tape, eschewing frills or effects, giving the music room to breathe. The result is a stark, honest life-affirming collection of songs.
