Long Live All of Us is Glossaryâ€™s 7th full-length album and the title has a special meaning to frontman Joey Kneiser, â€œIn 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 â€œromanticized southern rock & roll.
â€œFor us, the setting was like, a perfect Glossary song,â€ says Kneiser, â€œA 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 â€œA Shoulder to Cry Onâ€ and â€œUnder the Barking Moon.â€ Gospel-influenced songs, R&B-styled grooves, crawling, country-tinged ballads– Long Live All of Us is exactly the type of music youâ€™d expect to hear coming from a house sandwiched between heaven and hell
â€œWhen everything in the world seems to remind us of what weâ€™re doing wrong, [with this album] we wanted to remind people of what theyâ€™re doing right,â€ says Kneiser, â€œThe best thing that we have going as human beings is each other.â€
Glossaryâ€™s Long Live All of Us will be released October 25, 2011 by Last Chance Records and This Is American Music.
