We're still obviously very much metal. But I wanted to try some different things. He wanted to try different things. We wanted to grow and mature and show some development. People get tired of a band who put out records that are exactly the same. It was very challenging to us on many different levels. Number one, how so we improve ourselves within ourselves? And then, how do we rise to the challenge of the whole shadow of the sophomore recording."

Censorship And Tribute Glassjaw were forced to censor the recently released video for their current single "Cosmopolitan Blood Loss" in order to have it played on various video outlets. The original version for the clip, which stars acclaimed actor Vincent Gallo, ended with him shooting the band to death after finally tracking them down. That scene was found to be too violent to be aired however and as such the edit of the video which will be sent out for play and is also currently available for download on the bands website www.glassjaw.com, merely ends with Gallo giving the band a bitter stare. An uncensored edit of the video with the controversial final scene still does exist, though it seems unlikely that it will see the light of day due to its violent nature. Despite this though, the band do remain hopeful that it will be put out at some point or another down the line. Glassjaw's new album "Worship And Tribute" will land in stores on July 09th through I AM/Warner.
