This Is Glue 

Chicago Label Trouble In Mind, announce Christchurch's Salad Boys are back with This Is Glue” the follow up to their critically acclaimed 2015 debut album Metalmania. Recorded once again by bandleader/guitarist Joe Sampson at his home studio, This Is Glue's twelve songs dig deeper, with sharper hooks embedded deep within a more mature musicality.

This Is Glue hones Sampson’s songwriting chops to a razor edge, with many of the album’s songs sounding utterly timeless. Sampson has a voice all his own and “This Is Glue”s tunes tread upon a singular path of measured melancholy. The themes are darker, the lyrics more claustrophobic and yearning with Sampson confronting anxiety, mortality, and fear through the his abstract lyrical lens; a cracked world view, to be sure. Songs like Exaltation, Dogged Out and Divided convey a world-weariness of a man twice his age. 

That’s not to say that This Is Glue is all doom and gloom; album opener Blown Up kickstarts with motorik drumming that crescendos into a thrilling guitar riff  that could crack mountains. Psych Slasher crashes forward frenetically awash in phaser before easing into a melodic denouement buoyed by a bubbling synthesizer before a tidal wave of guitar crashes down again. Existential angst has never felt so exhilarating.

This Is Glue will be released Jan 19th 2018 ( CD, LP, LP Ltd powder pink & digital) Trouble In Mind / Southbound Distribution.
