"If" is the new sound of white noise! Glasvegas are back with Later...When the TV Turns to Static, due out in the U.S. on September 3rd via their own Go Wow Records in partnership with BMG.
Later...When the TV Turns to Static is the third studio album by Glasvegas and is the next stunning chapter from one of the U.K.'s most unique bands. Written and self-produced by lead vocalist and songwriter James Allan, this 10-track, 45-minute sojourn of heartfelt melancholia and broken relationships is set against a backdrop of scorching soundscapes that lift the soul into heights of abandoned euphoria. There is no doubt! Glasvegas have come home; turned their eyes from the blinding light back into the shadows, where reality lies.
The first single from the album is "If," a pealing, poetic discourse on life's cruel dichotomies: "If not for fear, hope is nowhere near."
"If" will be released digitally in the U.S. on July 9.
James Allan states, "My idea for the song came about during a phone call a while back with my good friend Alan McGee. He was talking to me about something quite difficult that was going on at the time and I said to him, 'Alan, if we didn't go through the bad stuff, we wouldn't recognize the good stuff; it would be invisible to you."
