  • GLASS CITY VICE already have a strong reputation for their energetic live performances, which have seen them grace the stages of Sonisphere – Knebworth and play alongside the likes of well respected rock acts such as You Me at Six, Dry The River, The Xcerts and Rival Schools.

    The Brighton four piece, comprising of Josh, Ed, Dudley & Lawrie, formed back in 2010, drawing influence from the sounds of Manchester Orchestra, Death Cab For Cutie and Diamond Youth. Over the years, the band crafted an impressive string of hits, produced by the likes of Matt O’Grady (You Me At Six, Deaf Havana, Don Broco, Your Demise), Gez Walton (The King Blues, Skindred), John Davis (Lana Del Rey, U2, Plan B) Harry Hess (Chicago, Billy Talent, Ramones).

    Their debut release, drew comparisons to Manchester Orchestra’s album ‘Simple Math’ with a chorus that delivered the same powerful energy as Twin Atlantic’s ‘Free’. The track featured slick production, concise arrangements and anthemic vocal hooks. Their obvious and deep passion resulted in an increasing amount of media attention and expanding their online presence worldwide.

    Following on from this, they began to pigeonhole their sound and with more creativity, a better idea of where they were heading, GLASS CITY VICE released ’Waves’. Catching the attention of XYZ Magazine they were praised for their impressionable hooks, and most notably the band’s competence as songwriters, highlighting their true attention to detail in regards to both their individual parts and the song as a whole.


    “Landslide has a raw, catchy edge to it with poignant bass-lines and a fetching guitar sound. The song is layered by soft yet tapering vocals that are accompanied by addictive harmonies.”
