After about a year long hiatus following drummer Joe Seward’s accident in Dublin, Glass Animals returned to the stage at the end of 2019. Now, on their first nationwide tour since 2018, the band is back in full force, showcasing that their psychedelic pop sound hasn’t gone stale.
Joe Seward was struck by a truck while cycling in Dublin, Ireland, causing a halt in the band’s activity. After sharing a health update near the end of 2018, Joe appeared that he was learning to walk, talk, and think again. Now, after a full recovery, Glass Animals is in the midst of their Deja Vu tour. A decision was made for the band to return to smaller venues they played during their first headlining tour in the U.S. Creating an incredibly intimate setting, this was the band’s way of thanking the fans who have stuck with them from the beginning, through their necessary break, and until now.
Glass Animals brought their synth-drenched pop music to the Fine Line Music Cafe on March 4th. Ground shaking 808s topped with wipsy vocals and driving synth lines rocked the small venue and all 650 patrons. They opened the show with their newest single “Tokyo Drifting” which set the tone for the rest of the evening, and that was to prove they’re back and better than ever.
