St. Louis’ very own Glued has been playing angular, dissonant prog-punk since the winter of 2015. At the core of their songs is a parade of rueful hours; an uncertain and acrid nostalgic overload led by interweaving guitar lines mutating and changing direction just as they settle in. Cool Evil repeatedly finds ways to shift gears from dynamic, melodic verses to expansive tunnels of four-piece instrumental conversation, revealing a fascinating chemistry few bands will ever approach.
"St. Louis’ Glued have spent the past few years becoming one of the Midwest’s most exciting bands. Having released a string of increasingly great EPs, including last year’s Insides, released via Sooper Records, the quartet’s songs are dense and unpredictable, shifting when least expected. While those EPs were all exceptional in short bursts, Glued are set to release Cool Evil, their full length debut, on March 1st via Born Yesterday Records (Landowner, Drool). They’ve pulled back the fuzz and reverb that coated so much of their prior work, and every knotted guitar convulsion and snapped rhythm can be heard in clarity, the band sounding better than ever as the atmosphere crumbles around them."

Glued is Sean Ballard, Johnny Wu Gabbert, Chelsi Webster, and Kevin Guszkowski.
