Official press release:
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).
