    Jon Davison Will Guest on New Glass Hammer Album

    Glass Hammer has announced a new album, entitled The Gate, which
    will be released on October 7, 2022.

    The band returns it's full lineup from last year's Skallagrim: Into the Breach, including their new lead singer, but Jon Davison will also be contributing vocals on one or more songs.

    This will mark Davison's first appearance on a new Glass Hammer studio album since 2014's Ode to Echo, which saw him do a limited number of tracks on an album with several lead vocalists, which itself followed 2012's Perilous, where he sang all the songs, and his first two Glass Hammer albums, If (2010) and For Cordium (2011), on which he also sang the entire length of the albums, and which are in my view his two best albums with Glass Hammer.

    Since Davison's full departure from Glass Hammer, they have recorded five albums- The Breaking of the World, Valkyrie, Chronomonaut, Dreaming City, and the aforementioned Skillagram: Into the Beach.

    The Gate is the last of a trilogy of albums that began with Dreaming City .

    Here is a very short (Under 1 minute) instrumental teaser for the upcoming album:

    "A lot of the heavier conversations I was having with Chris toward the end were about his desire for this thing to go forward. He kept reiterating that to me. [...] He kept telling me, 'No matter what happens, Yes needs to continue moving forward and make great music. So promise me that that's something you want to do.'. And I have to keep making music. It's just what I do. [...] I'm a fan of the band and I want to see it thrive and that means new music." -Billy Sherwood



      fantastic news, If and Cor Cordium were the albums that convinced me that was the right choice instead of Benoit David, I was thrilled when he got the Yes gig!

      Glass hammer have some class albums!
