Glasvegas release their third studio album, 'Later.When The TV Turns To Static' on 2nd September.
Featuring the singles 'I'd Rather Be Dead (Than Be With You)' and 'If', the latter being applauded as a 'welcome back to brilliant' for the band, the album was recorded in their hometown of Glasgow at Gorbals Studio with singer and songwriter James Allan in the producer's chair.
The title reflects much of the album's lyrical sentiments with James explaining thus:
'When you think about night time and the TV's static, I never think about anybody who's got company, because if they've got company the TV wouldn't be at static, somebody would change it. So there's something that isn't quite right. Something that's not parallel, symmetrical, that's out of balance, basically. There are a lot of those sentiments running through this record.'
