Glasvegas not splitting, despite being dropped

By | Published on Tuesday 23 August 2011


Glasvegas have said that they plan to stay together, despite being dropped by Sony/Columbia earlier this year. Guitarist Rab Allen told that the band have “no need” for a record contract right now, anyway. Although they don’t plan to go down the DIY route.

Allen said: “We’re definitely not breaking up. We’re thinking about what we want to do, which is probably why people think we’re breaking up. People have come in about signing us, but there’s no need for us to have a label right now. James [Allan] is writing the third album and when it’s ready we’ll probably sign. The people who want to sign us will still be there in four months time”.

He added: “I think we need the support of a label, we were lucky because our label gave us support so we now don’t need a label, but we’re quite lazy and we don’t like doing things ourselves, so we’ll probably still use one. The label were great for some things and they were awful for some things”.
