After teasing fans for months, lusty L.A. trio Gliss
it is ready to release its second album, Devotion Implosion
. Originally, the album was delayed due to mastering issues
Frontman Martin Klingman told Paste the record is set for an April 7
release. Two preview tracks, "Anybody Inside" and "Sad Eyes," will be available on iTunes Jan.
27. While the former has a dark, noisy vibe, the catchier latter seems destined for a TV/film appearance in the near future with its "oo-oo"-laden anthemic hook. (Click here for an exclusive listen.) Klingman described Devotion Implosion as having "incredible guitar tones" and representing a "giant step forward for the band sonically and song writing."
Gliss (which has toured with The Raveonettes, Billy Corgan,
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Editors and others) also released a couple
demos on its MySpace page last summer. One of those tracks, the album opener "Morning
Light," is reminiscent of the fuzzy Psychocandy days of the The Jesus and Mary Chain.
Following up Love the Virgins,
the new album will be released on Rykodisc and is mixed by Gareth
Jones (Depeche Mode, Clinic, Interpol, Erasure) and mastered by Greg
Calbi (John Lennon, Bruce Springsteen, David Bowie).
The band is also playing a show with Ida Maria tonight in Los Angeles at The Viper Room.
