After announcing our the most recent addition to the Glasshouse roster a few months back, it's finally come around to announce that the re-issue pre-orders of BELK - 'UMPIRE' is now live on our Bandcamp.
"UMPIRE is a hefty 4-track EP clocking in at just over 11 minutes, vicious, upfront and straight to the point, re-issued for the first time on limited edition two colour cassette tapes accompanied by a limited run of t-shirts designed by guitarist Alex F Pearson. This EP super heavy, abrasive and savage racket which needs to be listened to at maximum volume and is guaranteed to jump right out the speakers."
Pre-orders will run until official release date on Friday 4th June.
A lovely surprise earlier today to see that Matt Daniels from Echoes and Dust has written this lovely review on Burden Limbs - In The Flesh.
"In the Flesh is an audacious move from a band who have yet to release a full-length album and who are still establishing themselves in this genre… a move that actually pays off in spades as this duo of audial and visual treats packs a punch and showcases a band at the top of their creative game."

Will from Wolves In The Drone Doom reviewed Burden Limbs - In The Flesh on their 'New Spins' review today. A wonderful review and thank you WITDD for your continued support!
"Definitely one of the best live sessions I've heard during this period, and if the lo-fi nature of some of Burden Limbs recorded material doesn't quite grab you, then give In The Flesh a spin and hopefully you'll be hooked."

Thank you Sergio from Portraying Voices for this top review of in violet - Cathedral Thinking!
"Contemplating a Berlin techno maniacally decorated by a vocal psychedelia, which sees its libertarian spirit spiced up when that industriality enters the scene..."

Rory and Chad, aka Glasshouse HQ recently joined good friend Adriana Ciccone over at Echoes and Dust for an in-depth interview about how the label started and where we're heading.
"It kind of made sense to me there and then that starting my own label was the next progression. I had a good idea how a label is run, I didn’t have to pitch or prove to anyone they’d be worthy, I can choose who I want to release and it was like a “Fuck it, if I can’t be in a band, I’ll release the bands I like” mentality. That’s when Glasshouse was born."

Happy release day in violet!
'Cathedral Thinking' is out everywhere now.
Re-wiring their inner mechanics to approach every aspect of their music as a middle-ground of DJ and band, now more than ever they are accurately described as a lysergic post-techno racket, with mind blowing production and singularly spectacular musicians. The band’s founding member, Jake Murray had this to say about the release “The world is lurching towards disaster. While the greatest threat to this planet’s continued stability surges ever closer at alarming rates, we are growing ever more divided. Society is polarised, our discourse is volatile and our time is running out. Will we hold those who lead us accountable, and reach across the aisles to turn a corner in this critical moment of human history? or will our divisions grow and our apathy lead us, blindfolded, to an extinction of our own making?"
The cat's out of the bag and it's official - we're incredibly excited to finally reveal that London's post-techno quintet in violet have joined the Glasshouse roster!
Returning after five years with a brand new lineup, we're honoured to be releasing their new single 'Cathedral Thinking', officially out tomorrow.
Watch their new music video premiering on Backseat Mafia now.
