Where did the name Glass Animals come from?
People have many ideas about where the band's name came from. Some think that the members came up with it as a reference to the famous Tennessee Williams play, The Glass Menagerie, given the glass animals featured in the play. Others say it is because the band was given some glass animals as a gift early in its formation. Dave Bayley says it is because when the band set out to post its first two songs online, Joe told him he needed to think of a band name, and this is the first one he came up with. He felt it fit the music, so he opted to use it, and it stuck.
