It seems inevitable that if you haven’t heard of the Scottish band Glasvegas, you probably will soon. Their self-titled debut album was released in January of this year, and had been nominated for the Mercury Prize for best album of 2009, though it lost to Speech DeBelle’s Speech Therapy. Tack on live performances on Carson Daly and Craig Ferguson, playing a set at Lollapalooza and it’s no wonder they found themselves touring with U2 only a handful of months later. To finish up the year, Glasvegas is currently touring with Kings of Leon throughout Canada and some parts of the U.S (dates after the jump).


Yesterday, the band released their second U.S. single, “It’s My Own Cheating Heart That Makes Me Cry”. The single, which Bono declares is “one of the best songs [he’s] ever heard”, comes paired with a video which features a more intimate look into the mind of lead singer James Allan as he contemplates his inner quarrels with love:
