Material Control doesn't cater to anything except the next rush of adrenaline, the next high; it thrives on the left turn, the bait-and-switch, that wonderful tingling moment when your blood is up and you wonder "what the fuck am I listening to"" with teeth bared.

Exclaim!

Material Control is an invigorating yet familiar release from the band and by far their angriest and densest music to date.

Northern Transmissions
For their first record in over a decade Glassjaw aren’t perfect, but that’s how we like them. Revving up the distortion and chaotic moods of the past, they craft a record that only slows down for a moment before unleashing a new vicious riff.

Pitchfork

Think of Material Control as a post-hardcore Long Island tea: it’ll take you back to being a teen when you could care less what was in it and how it was mixed together. The only thing that mattered was whether you got knocked on your ass.

The Needle Drop
Post-hardcore veterans Glassjaw return with their first album in 15 years.
