GLASS CLOUD RELEASES
"SHE IS WELL AND NOTHING CAN BE ILL"
LIVE PERFORMANCE MUSIC VIDEO

SET TO TOUR WITH SILVERSTEIN JANUARY-MARCH 2013

Equal Vision Records’ Glass Cloud has released an action packed live performance video for their song “She Is Well and Nothing Can Be Ill” off of their debut album The Royal Thousand.

The video was filmed by Nick Godsell on the band’s recent run on the 2012 AP Tour in Norfolk, VA at Norva and Richmond, VA at Kingdom and captures the band’s wildly memorable stage presence and charismatic, engaging personalities found both on and off the stage. The explosive video premiered yesterday on AltPress.com and is now also available on Youtube.com/equalvision

Since the July 10 release of The Royal ThousandGlass Cloud has toured extensively, performing on The Road To Metal Fest Tour, Scream It Like You Mean It 2012, and a Canadian run with labelmates Texas In July; And at festivals around the country such as New England Metal and Hardcore Festival, SXSW, Jamboree, South By So What, and Never Say Never, where Glass Cloud has shared stages with the likes of Killswitch Engage, Every Time I Die, Trivium, and more. With each and every performance, Glass Cloud has commanded the attention of the audience and won over crowds with their impressive display of exceptional musicianship, over the top energy, and dynamic performances.

The Royal Thousand was recorded in Escondido, CA at Lambesis Studios, with 8-string guitarist Josh Travis also serving as producer. The band has been praised around the world, with UK’s Big Cheese Magazine penning, “Glass Cloud demonstrates the grittiest representation of the uprising melodic hardcore groups with the addition of having some of the finest musicians within said genre,” and noting the album’s display of “…limitless vocal ranges and driving intricacies, aided by mind-blowing riffs and electrifying melodies.” Metal Hammer comments directly on “She Is Well And Nothing Can Be Ill” lauding that it’s “full of polyrhythmic wizardy, piercing riffs and jarring notes…” while Alternative Press states, “Roush’s voice recalls Deftones’ Chino Moreno at times, his melodies sharing a certain moody intensity with that band, too. Travis, meanwhile, is a Meshuggah-indebted technical death-metal player wielding an eight-string guitar and chunking out ultra-dense chords and eardrum-sanding waves of dissonance…the amount of potential here is astronomical.”

Glass Cloud will continue to bring their animated, axe swinging performances throughout North America in 2013, kicking off the year on tour with Silverstein, featuring additional support from Like Moths To Flames, Secrets, and Issues.

In case you haven’t heard yet, Glass Cloud had a terrible van accident this weekend while on the AP Tour. Most importantly - we are so incredibly thankful that all of the band and crew are free of any major injuries, only facing some minor bumps and bruises. Their van and trailer weren’t so fortunate (as you can see in the photos below and in the video above) but the band is determined to continue on the tour. Complete troopers. The band unfortunately had to cancel their performance last night in Salt Lake City and tonight in Denver - but are doing their best to make it out to the show in St Paul, MN on Thursday, November 15. Des Moines, IA at Wooly’s on Wednesday, November 14 (w/ The Ghost Inside, Glass Cloud, Dividing the Masses, Buster Casey, For the Empire, and Crusader). [2:22pm ET; EDIT: Good news, Glass Cloud has been added to a one-off show  tomorrow with The Ghost Inside!]


Thank you so much to everyone who has reached out to check on the band, sent well wishes, and/or who has donated to helping the band get back on their feet (and the road).

For anyone who will be attending the AP Tour tonight in Denver, the band WILL have merch available at the show. Picking up a shirt, CD, or making a donation is more than appreciated if you can help them out.  A message direct from the band detailing their situation can be seen below:

This Is A Message To The Royal Thousand:


     To say we’ve had a rough couple of days would be a massive understatement. Yesterday morning (11-11-12) at 7am, your boys in Glass Cloud took a heavy blow. While driving through Deadman’s Pass on the Oregon Trail, we started to drift on a patch of ice and lost traction while trying to regain control. Our van completely turned around 180 degrees and as we were drifting backward, our wheel clipped a rock and flipped our van and trailer onto the drivers side.


     The crash shattered all the windows on that side leaving us all laying in broken glass. It also partially caved in the roof, shattered the windshield, and caved in the entire sheet metal siding on the drivers side. Our trailer has a twisted frame and tongue, bent up wheels, the back gate is pinched shut, the roof is pushed out and everything BUT our equipment is pretty much unsalvageable (thank god for flight cases on our instruments).


     Our drummer, Chad, was driving with our tour manager Eric in the passenger seat and Myself (Travis), Josh, Jerry and our merch girl Jess in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th row respectively. When we gained our bearings and realized that we were all still able to move, we helped each other climb out through the front windshield and into the snowy Oregon moutainside. We gathered what little of our belongings we could from the wreckage and got a ride from a tow truck to the town of Pendleton located 20 miles from the crash.


     As of now, I am writing this from my phone in an Econolodge trying to figure out what we need to do to get back on the road, meet up with our good friends on the AP tour, and continue playing our music across the country for the last two weeks of shows.


     In this video and here in the description you can find out exactly how to help us in this time and get us back on the road to finish this tour and make it home safely. When we get home, the real troubles will begin with finding transportation for our gear and a replacement for our van and trailer. We appreciate any help we can get from anybody during this hellacious time we are going trough and we hope everyone else stays safe and careful during these winter months.

All The Love,
-GC
