Coming out of doors with one of the strongest debut albums of the year, Glove is releasing Boom Nights independently today. The nine-track project is a taste of the alt-rock/synthwave niche dominated by the Tampa-based band. The utter dystopian rapture of this album is uniquely captured in a concise and addictive package. Listen to Boom Nights HERE.
With the constant idea that the band should never be a singular configuration or tick particular boxes, the aim of this disc is to allow listeners to draw from it what they need at that precise moment. Boom Nights can be anything from a soundtrack to a hedonistic evening that ends with the sun already up or perhaps a slow burner of an evening spent alone.
Upon the album’s release, the band said, “Boom Nights is a collection of songs that are meant to be ambiguous. We think it’s important that the listener can interpret the songs, but resonate with them. Boom Nights could be the best or the worst night of your life.”
During the pandemic, Glove made several trips to Nashville to polish Boom Nights with close collaborator Brad Shultz (Cage The Elephant). With unbroken focus in a closed world, the end product is the exact statement Glove wanted to make to present themselves properly to listeners. With the seasoned ear of producer Brad Shultz and mixing engineer Jeremy Ferguson, the band was able to push their sound further than previously imagined.
Starting today, the band will be on a North American tour supporting Nation of Language. A regular on the festival circuit, Glove will also make appearances at SXSW, Treefort Music Festival and more. In May, the band will join A Place to Bury Strangers for another North American tour. And then to close out August, Glove will join Jack White on three show dates. All updates on upcoming shows can be found here.
ABOUT THE GLOVE
The gloves are cutting edge new age nostalgia. Channeling seedy nightclub sentiment into a well-polished ensemble, the band’s sheer magnetism and style earned them the early attention of Spotify’s New Noise playlist for their single “Behaviour.” Continuing this momentum with each subsequent release, Glove writes the soundtrack of dystopian rapture.
Formed in Tampa, Florida and made up of Rod Wendt, Brie Deux, Michelle Primiani and Justin Burns, Glove is a fluid unit in which there is no single person. This aligns with the band’s creative ethos as opposed to being categorized as a fixed, but rather amorphous setup, generating intrigue, suspense, and excitement among fans. Glove’s live performances sound like a mosh pit mixed with Studio 54, gracing stages at Lollapalooza, Shaky Knees and Levitation and on the road with White Reaper, The Nude Party and BRONCHO. In support of their debut album Boom Nights, produced by Cage The Elephant’s Brad Shultz, Glove will tour in support of Jack White, Nation of Language and A Place to Bury Strangers, as well as perform at SXSW, Treefort Music Festival and more to be announced soon.
Boom Nights will be available on all streaming platforms on March 18.
