3000 year at Forecastle

So YMC scores us some awesome dad blasted Media passes and Goliath is like “Damn the heathern Gawds….now I got no excuse not to go to Forecastle.  So first we hit the Pre-show Media thing. This was more Goliath’s style.…

Forecastle 2016: Excuse us, we’re part of the “media”

7:00 PM – It’s been a long day of work and I was ready to rub elbows with the media elite, possibly make a few Donald Trump jokes and lose myself for a few hours. Goliath, not being one to wait for anyone, already started his own party at our top secret meeting grounds.

“Hey Matt,” he grumbles on the phone while I’m putting in my contacts. “How about you come get me?”

I’m not surprised G wants me to come retrieve him and drive him around like his personal chauffeur, so I agree and go retrieve the giant.

7:45 – Goliath is already begun to unwind and pick him up at a bar we consider our own.

“I’m not gonna park for this guy and go waltz in looking for him,” I say to myself on the way there.

Glass Animals: New Music “Life Itself”

This week Glass Animals, an Oxford four-some with a unique sound and style, debuted new solo music for the first time in more than a year. The band debuted “Life Itself” this week and it’s available on YouTube, SoundCloud and all other major music streaming services.

The song is just what you’d expect from the band who seem to have been touring non-stop since the 2014 release of their debut album “Zaba.”

The surprise of new music will surely come as a relief to anyone, myself included, who was hoping to hear new music from the band on one of their many tour stops this summer.

GAWNews first saw the Glass Animals live at Bonnaroo last year and look forward to seeing them perform at Forecastle Festival this summer where we’ll be broadcasting live as we cover for the fifth year in a row.

Enjoy the new music and check out our Glass Animals concert coverage of their sold-out show at Headliners in Louisville.
