While the two bands have surprisingly never shared a stage together, their contributions to true post-hardcore is indisputable, specifically New York post-hardcore. “Growing up on Long Island, in the shadow of Quicksand and the world that they had come out of, was a huge influence of the bands we were in and the music that Glassjaw would go on to make,” states Glassjaw frontman Darryl Palumbo. “Even though we’re a few years apart, it’s a ton of the same influences: bad brains, Fugazi, tons of gigs in sweaty basements and VFW halls. It’s nothing short of awesome to see both us still making music from our hearts and honestly not giving a fuck.”
