Glossary preps ‘Long Live All of Us’

Long Live All of Us is Glossary’s 7th full-length album and the title has a special meaning to frontman Joey Kneiser, “In light of all the bad things happening in the world… we ended up making an extremely positive record.

Joey and the band transformed a Tennessee farmhouse into a recording studio with friend and engineer Mikey Allred. Over the course of a month they transported their sound to new places using piano, pedal steel, and R&B-influenced horns to create a “romanticized southern rock & roll.

“For us, the setting was like, a perfect Glossary song,” says Kneiser, “A house with a church on one side and a condemned meth lab wrapped in police tape on the other. The rock & roll dream. Living together, writing and recording all day.

Jim Spake (Al Green, Alex Chilton) and Nahshon Benford (Snowglobe, Lucero) stopped by to add horns for the jaunty, Stax-like rhythm of “A Shoulder to Cry On” and “Under the Barking Moon.” Gospel-influenced songs, R&B-styled grooves, crawling, country-tinged ballads– Long Live All of Us is exactly the type of music you’d expect to hear coming from a house sandwiched between heaven and hell

“When everything in the world seems to remind us of what we’re doing wrong, [with this album] we wanted to remind people of what they’re doing right,” says Kneiser, “The best thing that we have going as human beings is each other.”

Glossary’s Long Live All of Us will be released October 25, 2011 by Last Chance Records and This Is American Music.
