The Glass Casket reunion is extending to the stage! Glass Casket recently dropped their first new single in 17 years, and has now announced their first show since 2010 at the First In Flight Fest this October. The festival takes place between October 5 and 7 at the Hangar 1819 venue in Greensboro, NC, and will also feature Glass Casket-adjacent band Between The Buried And Me. Tickets are available here.
Glass Casket in 2023 is vocalist Adam Cody (Wretched, Columns), Between The Buried And Me guitarist Dustie Waring and drummer Blake Richardson, bassist Sid Menon, and guitarist Wes Hauch (ex-The Faceless, ex-Black Crown Initiate).
On Glass Casket's return after all these years, Waring said "We never really went anywhere. Everyone just kind of had their own lives and plans. Most of the guys were in college at the time and I just wanted to tour and play as much as possible, so Blake and I ended up in BTBAM for the last 19 years. When Desperate Man's Diary was recorded, we'd already released Alaska with BTBAM and had a pretty non-stop touring schedule so there were only a few shows played during that period.
"Back in 2014, Wes Hauch came and stayed with me for about a month and we put together some material with Blake and demo'd out a few things. I guess it just wasn't the right time so we just sat on it for a while and stored riffs and parts away for when things lined up. Fast forward to about a year ago… Blake started working on some stuff and emailed us ideas. Everything kind of took shape from there and I started demoing guitars just to see where we were at, how the songs made us feel.
"Everyone was pretty stoked on the material so, Blake tracked his drums at home, I went in and tracked guitars and bass with Jamie King, Adam came in and did his vocals with Jamie, and Wes tracked his solos at home. Very fast, very easy process for us at this point and it came out better than expected. It was time."
