“GLASSING reminds you that you deserve nothing in new song ‘Sleeper.'” — Metal Injection
Spotted Horse is the impending new full-length from Austin, Texas-based blackened post-hardcore trio GLASSING.
Weaving together layers of dense textures, swirling blastbeats, and looming atmospheres, GLASSING excels at the art of manifesting organized chaos through sound. With the ten-track/forty-four-minute Spotted Horse, the band seamlessly blends elements of black metal and post-hardcore with ambient explorations, dream-pop sensibilities, and grinding walls of sound that defy categorization.
In advance of Spotted Horse‘s May 17th release via Brutal Panda Records, Metal Injection unsheathes the band’s video accompaniment to the track “Sleeper.” Notes the band of the track simply, “‘Sleeper’ comes from incessant suspicion, always quick to remind you, ‘you deserve nothing and you know it to be true.'”

Cold sand on a barren coastline. Spectral blackness. Godless nights. The calmness of undisturbed water. The illusion of belonging. Death as a gift. These are but a minute illustration of the vast array of themes and explorations deliberated upon by Austin, Texas-based trio GLASSING on their sophomore opus Spotted Horse. Recorded with Andrew Hernandez at Estuary Recording Facility in Austin, with cover art by This Will Destroy You’s Chris King, Spotted Horse is, at its core, a construction of dynamic, beautifully unsettling soundscapes, and nothingness unsurfaced at once pulsing and punishing. Fans of Deafheaven, Oathbreaker, Envy, Birds In Row, Astronoid, Alcest, Sigur Ros, and This Will Destroy You, pay heed.
Following the release of Spotted Horse, GLASSING will take to the streets on a US summer tour. Still in its plotting stages, the journey will officially commence on June 14th and run through July 13th. See all confirmed dates below.

“From their wailing guitars to their staccato rhythms to their hollered vocals, GLASSING find the sweet spot between Deftones, The Dillinger Escape Plan, and Big Black, and drive a spike deep into it so that fans can hear the raw sonic substance that bubbles forth.” – Kerrang
