The new single will be titled G.L.O.W. and is the first studio effort from the band since the American Gothic sessions.

The has been no word on the style or arrangement of the song at this time.

A little Dickie Bird, who may well be -very- wrong, believes this Single actually has three tracks. Each from their as yet unannounced next album (Zeitgeist II with stripes?). :)

I’m hoping the band take a small break after this release, they need one since returning last year, imho.

Another thought is; it brings into line some of the story between Gish and Machina’s release, how they were linked.

This is probably one of my favourite SP traits, Fans/Followers will only ever know small snippets of what’s going on.

Suck up the mystery, I say. \\m/

G.L.O.W., sounds… aggressive. God Leaves Our World.

Well, not being completely serious of course, but there might be some truth in it also. In that German broadcast with Uli, Billy said somewhere that he is torn between a new rock album that will amaze the world (my translation) or an acoustic album as a contrary to that. I’m very curious what it will be too. I’m hoping for a rock track a bit more, as I love to hear Billy split his guitar in two, but an acoustic track will be welcomed warmly also! :D

yeah, i wonder if it will be a rock or acoustic thing too. i would like a bit of both, but with a single you can’t really expect that necessarily.

Something about the song title suggests to me a more spacey guitar track or acoustic rather than rock, but then I’ve been known to be wrong :P
I’m excited to hear anything they release, I just hope that
A : there is a physical release
and
B : It has b-sides that don’t turn out to be on the next album.

Anyone come up for any funny meanings for the acronym yet? :P

For the first time since long I checked ThePumpkins.net, and found member pierowmaniac mentioning "God Loves Our World". I think it’s the opposite, Billy has lost faith in religion, and is aggressively frustrated about the mistake he made about being religious. He woke up, and wrote a song about that.

God Leaves Our World, that’s my guess.

If you spell G.L.O.W. backwards, it’s W.O.L.G. So my guess it that they collaborated with Mark Walberg, formery of the Funky Bunch. Maybe he just produced the track? My guess is that Billy will be shirtless in the video and dancing.

The song will be catchy as shit.
