Glass Rifle - Foebic

from Love American Skin by Various Artists



Glass Rifle are Americans Dan Colby, Ryan Francini, and British-born PJ Norman. The roots of the group lie in the Boston DIY punk scene where Colby and Francini first met. After stints on drums for Hydrahead stalwarts The Huguenots, and Jade Tree Record’s The Explosion, Colby formed The Cignal with Francini. In the mid ‘00s, after a well-received 7”, The Cignal disbanded and both Francini and Colby moved to New York City. It was here, several years later, that they met PJ Norman.

"Impossible to ignore." - Joe Marvilli, Consequence Of Sound

"A degree of genuine punch and something feels fiercely independent about it." - Daniel Dylan Wray, Glasswerk

"Glass Rifle are a sonic battering of dischordant power pop, with killer guitar licks offsetting fierce beats that literally pummel you into submission." - Zolton, Lost At E Minor

"It's tight, incredibly crafted and stands alongside any classic American underground sound… Both of these tracks are pushing that complex hardcore formula to it's limits, it's just an impressive contemporary take on a genre that remains relevant thanks to Glass Rifle." - Jason Dean, 7Inches

"Moving, unconventional and provocative. Blazing a new trail in contemporary music." - Tony Mastrianni, National Music Writer

"A singular sound that gets you tight to your chair... Awesome." - RJ Frometa, Vents Magazine

"Urgent Post-Punk attack, kicking the living shit out of your ears…in a good way!" - Route For The Underdog

"Like a Hold Steady raised on London punk and based in Brooklyn, Glass Rifle's delivery stays true to the varied roots of all its members by distorting the relentless energy of British rock with a Williamsburg flair." - Joe Puglisi, Baeble Music

"Early Mission of Burma filtered through the earliest releases on Invisible Records. Somehow it feels very familiar, yet completely new at the same time… For anyone who longs for the heyday when Amphetamine Reptile and Touch and Go weren't just labels, but institutions, this is as inviting as it gets." - Creaig Dunton, Brainwashed
