Long Island post-hardcore outfit Glassjaw are hands down one of my favourite bands ever. It's an easy call for me to make, since I haven't been able to stop listening to them for over sixteen years. I can't believe I can even make a statement that claims that. SIXTEEN YEARS! Damnit, I'm getting old. It's been that long since the release of their debut record Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Silence.
I've photographed them before, but only at festivals during the day (Riot Fest & Heavy Montréal). Not that festivals are bad (I actually love photographing festivals), but I really wanted to shoot their live show in a proper venue. I recently got that opportunity and some of my favourite shots from the show are below.
All photos were shot for Blare, see their feature here.
