After a 19-year hiatus, rockers UGLY KID JOE are set to return with a new full-length album entitled, “Uglier Than They Used Ta Be.”
The album, which was recorded at JT Studios and Balance Studios in Louisiana under the helm of producer and UKJ guitarist Dave Fortman (Slipknot, Godsmack, Evanescence), is scheduled for release in North America October 16th via Metalville/UKJ Records.
Whitfield Crane (Vocals) and Klaus Eichstadt (Guitars) teamed up with Sonny Mayo (Guitars), Shannon Larkin (Drums), Zac Morris (Drums), Cordell Crockett (Bass) and Dave Fortman (Guitars) to form the now 7-member line up a.k.a. “Seven Headed Monster” and write and record in the studio.
“It's a full circle of sorts,” says Crane. “There was a lot of love and talent in one room and that is exactly what this album sounds like.”
