Official press release:
After a near-decade-long silence, notorious Louisville, Kentucky-based psychedelic punk unit, The Glasspack, will return to the stage and studio.
Featuring core members, “Dirty” Dave Johnson (vocals, guitars), Brett “Cap’n” Holsclaw (mc, drums), and Nicholas Hall (guitars, keys), with Billy Lease (guitars, bass) and Rodney Roads (bass, guitar), the band feels it is once again time to jumpstart Louisville’s rock scene. For its return to the stage, The Glasspack will play a special headlining show September 7th at Headliner’s Music Hall in their home city. Special guests include local acts Call Me Bronco, Sound Company, and Wiirmz. Additional performances will be announced in the weeks to come.
With Johnson, Holsclaw, and Hall, all attending school and working with other musical projects in and around Louisville, The Glasspack has been on hiatus since 2010. In that time however, the band completed music for a space rock album, Moon Patrol. Set to be recorded later this year at an as-yet-undisclosed studio, the record — one 45-minute long single-track split into seven segments — will mark The Glasspack’s fifth full-length release since 1999. Check out an album teaser below:
