About Glasvegas

Glasvegas are a Scottish alternative rock band that formed in Glasgow in 2003. The band consists of James Allan (vocals, rhythm guitar), Rab Allan (lead guitar, backing vocals), Paul Donoghue (bass guitar, backing vocals) and Caroline McKay (drums).

History
Formation and early years (2003-2006)

The band's original line-up came together in late 2003, comprising James Allan on vocals and guitar, his cousin Rab Allan on guitar, Paul Donoghue on bass guitar, and Ryan Ross on drums. They toured intermittently from 2003 to 2005 around Scotland, releasing a limited edition double A-side single, "I'm Gonna Get Stabbed"/"Ina Lvs Rab" on CD in May 2004. Ryan Ross left the group in late 2004 to go to the USA. In December 2005, the band asked Caroline McKay to be their drummer. A notable early supporter of the band was Alan McGee. On 30 October 2006, the band released a self-funded limited edition 7" single, "Go Square Go!."
Glasvegas and A Snowflake Fell (And It Felt Like a Kiss) (2007-present)

Following the release of another limited edition 7" single, "Daddy's Gone" on 5 November 2007, Glasvegas found themselves at the centre of a bidding war from several major record labels. "Daddy's Gone" sold out and was voted the number two single of the year by NME magazine. After releasing their third limited edition 7" single, "It's My Own Cheating Heart That Makes Me Cry" on 14 February 2008, the band opted to sign to Columbia. They then won the prestigious Philip Hall Radar Award at the NME Awards two weeks later. Glasvegas recorded their eponymous debut album, Glasvegas, at Brooklyn Recording Studios in New York. The album was produced by James Allan and Rich Costey. The album was released on 8 September 2008, and included re-recordings of "Daddy's Gone" (the second single from the album), "It's My Own Cheating Heart That Makes Me Cry," and "I'm Gonna Get Stabbed" (retitled "Stabbed," and featuring the backing music of Beethoven's "Moonlight" Sonata), as well as previously unreleased songs "Polmont on My Mind," "Lonesome Swan," "S.A.D. Light," and "Geraldine," which was the first single from the album.
In October 2008, Glasvegas recorded a Christmas-themed mini-album, A Snowflake Fell (And It Felt Like a Kiss), over twelve days--ten of which in a Transylvanian church in Romania--and was released on 1 December 2008. The band are to headline the 2009 NME Awards Tour in January 2009, following their own US and UK tour.

Glasvegas received three nominations for the 2008 Swedish Rockbjörnen awards: Best International Act, Best International Album for Glasvegas and Best International Song for "Geraldine." In Q magazine's list of the Top 50 Albums of 2008, Glasvegas was voted the fifth best album of the year.

Other charted songs

With the A Snowflake Fell (And It Felt Like a Kiss) mini-album being released solely as a bonus CD for the special edition re-release of Glasvegas in the UK, fans who'd already bought the album prior to this release had the option to download the EP, resulting in each track charting on the UK Singles Chart.
