Baptist Generals “Broken Glass”

The Baptist Generals’ long-awaited return to active status has thus far been very easy on the ears, and we’re still over a month out until Jackleg Devotional to the Heart is officially on the street. It all started with the release of the decade-long silence-breaking track, “Dog That Bit You” and it continues today with the very excellent “Broken Glass”, which is available for your listening pleasure in the player above.

Both of these notable sonic gems are on the band’s aforementioned forthcoming full-length record, Jackleg Devotional to the Heart, out May 21st on Sub Pop Records (wait, that’s us).

Pre-ordering Jackleg on CD or LP from gets you some limited-edition perks. The first of which is a 7" flexi-disc single featuring the non-album track, “Fly Candy Harvest”, currently available exactly no where else. The second totally limited thing is the colored-vinyl, Loser Edition of the LP. As we mentioned, ad nauseum, these things are limited, and such as the nature of limited things, they will run out, so order quickly.

Pre-order Jackleg Devotional to the Heart on CD or LP here.
