Exclusive EP Premiere: Glass Cloud —'Perfect War Forever'

Today, GuitarWorld.com presents the exclusive premiere of Perfect War Forever, the new EP from Glass Cloud. The five-song release will be available October 22.

Perfect War Forever, Glass Cloud’s most intense work to date, features the band’s first-ever material that incorporates a nine-string guitar.

"It's been a blast creating material on an extended-range nine-string guitar," said Josh Travis, the band's producer and guitarist. "It's challenged me as a musician to develop one of the wildest tunings I've ever used. Since there's no way any of the traditional standard and drop tunings would work with stuff like this, it forces you to be creative and think outside the box.

"That has been something we're always doing with Glass Cloud, pushing everything to the limit, whether it's our recorded music or our live shows."

Travis (ex-the Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza) also recently released a signature guitar series through Legator Guitars.

Glass Cloud is vocalist Jerry Roush, bassist Travis Sykes, drummer Chad Hasty and guitarist Josh Travis. For more about the band, visit their Facebook page. Check out the band's current tour dates below the Soundcloud player!
