Jay Gleeson used to run rampant at the helm of Between The Devil & The Deep, one of the most underrated heavy bands this country has produced in the last 20 years. Having this terrifying fella out front again is such a rush, and it packs the exact kind of punch you'd expect. Really looking forward to seeing what comes next.
