The January 2018 Glassjaw Australian tour dates have today been cancelled, with the hope that the tour dates will be re-scheduled later in 2018. 

MJR Presents Promoter Scott Mesiti today stated "Unfortunately, we have to cancel these Glassjaw tour dates next week - we’re currently waiting on more information from the band and their ability to re-schedule the tour, so we are cancelling this tour for now. To those Glassjaw fans who have purchased tickets - you will be refunded 100% of your ticket purchase. We are very sorry that this tour has had to be cancelled - we know Glassjaw fans are extremely passionate and very keen to see them. We are waiting and hoping to hear that the dates can be re-scheduled for later in the year as we’re still committed to bring Glassjaw to Australia in the near future!"



Long Island, New York Post-Hardcore legends Glassjaw are today announcing that they will be gracing Australian shores in January 2018 in a tour presented by MJR Presents. The influential and revered outfit are renowned for their intense live shows and their bombastic and hard-edged music.

The band, who formed with original members Daryl Palumbo and Justin Beck in 1993, will be in the country for a very short stab of shows - 15th January to 22nd January - in Melbourne at The Forum, Sydney at The Metro, Brisbane at The Tivoli and Perth at Capitol. Tickets go on pre-sale 9am Local Time Wednesday 18th October for Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney and Perth. General Public On-Sale begins at 10am local time Friday 20th October. All pre-sale signups and general tickets can be purchased at

The storied band, who have been instrumental in the formation of underground music scenes in Eastern USA and the UK, have released two studio albums including Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Silence (2000) and Worship and Tribute (2002), as well as EPs Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (1997), El Mark (2005), Our Color Green (The Singles) (2011) and Coloring Book (2011).

This tour will be the first time that the band has been in Australia since 2014 for Soundwave and their "sidewave" shows with Dillinger Escape Plan and Dir En Grey. Heavy Mag described their set "Glassjaw are LOUD, yet fantastic. It takes a special kind of band that can manage to be so off kilter, yet maintain some degree of melody." and FasterLouder praised their Soundwave set - "Long Island's Glassjaw had no trouble holding their audience's attention, with their sprawling post-hardcore delivered with volume and vigour. Of course, it helps having such a charismatic frontman as the sky-punching and hip-shaking Daryl Palumbo.

Tickets go on pre-sale 9am Local Time Wednesday 18th October for Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney and Perth. General Public On-Sale begins at 10am local time Friday 20th October. All pre-sale signups and general tickets can be purchased at
