Glass Cloud‘s debut The Royal Thousand has been regularly perplexing me for the last few weeks. The manic and crushing guitar riffs, courtesy of none other than Josh Travis of The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza, are nothing short of amazing but I’m not quite sold on the vocals just yet. Alucard had a similar problem that he elaborated on in his review of the album, which you can read here. Regardless, the band have picked easily one of my favourite tracks to provide a live video for — it’s a standard affair, mostly showing off the band’s live show, it’s just a shame that the video doesn’t sync with the audio.
Be on the look out for:
- Travis’ stage moves, which are nearly as good as his riffs.
- Baseball caps, baseball caps everywhere. Indoors.
- Vocalist Jerry Roush going all Hulkamania near the end.
The Royal Thousand is out now on Equal Vision and Basick Records.
