Concerts: Glass Hammer To Perform In Europe For First Time Ever

Posted on Saturday, November 26 @ 11:37:12 UTC by admin

As reported earlier this week via Prog and Glass Hammer themselves: "US proggers Glass Hammer will perform their first ever European live show when they headline Italy's 2 Days Of Prog + 1 Festival in September 2017.

"This will be band's first European dates in their near quarter century existence. 'We are approaching the twenty-fifth anniversary of Glass Hammer in 2017 and headlining the Veruno Festival seems a very good way to celebrate,' bassist Steve Babb told Prog. 'The band is planning to perform our new release Valkyrie in its entirety, along with other songs from the back catalog that have never been performed live. We’re also headlining Quebec’s Terra Incognita Festival in May, and hope to add more dates in the near future.' [Prog]

"Glass Hammer headlines Sunday for the 2Days + 1 Festival in Veruno Italy 2017! Lots of great bands at this event. Thanks to John 'BoBo' Bollenberg for lining this up. 2017 begins the 25th anniversary of Glass Hammer. Let's celebrate! One concert in Quebec, another in Italy and hopefully more dates will be announced soon!" the band noted in their Facebook posting. [Good to see Bobo still involved, as we haven't heard from him in ages - ed.]

The festival will take place September 1 - 3 (free admission!); also on the bill: Frost*, Comedy of Errors and Discipline, with more acts still to be announced.

In other recent Glass Hammer news, the band re-issued If in a hi-res version (mastered by Bob Katz) through their Bandcamp page. There you will also find in hi-res The Breaking Of The World, Perilous and Cor Cordium, along with their most recent album Valkyrie.
