Ugly Kid Joe to begin working on new studio album in November
Great news for Ugly Kid Joe fans as the group is set to begin working on a new studio album starting on November 1, 2019.
In an interview with UK’s eonmusic, Ugly Kid Joe lead vocalist Whitfield Crane revealed when we can expect a new record from the band as he indicated: “We’re going in the studio. We’re all leaving on our various journeys right now – families, and all this stuff – and then we’ll come back, November 1st to the U.K., and then we stuff ourselves in the studio, and we’re making a new record, just now, this next November, November 1st. When would I expect it to be released? I don’t know. When it shows itself.”
In terms of Ugly Kid Joe‘s initial impact when the group “blew up” in popularity in 1991, Crane opined: “You know, we were so young that when that song [‘Everything About You’] hit, we didn’t know it hit. We were on tour with a group called Scatterbrain, and all of a sudden the rooms started filling up, and we didn’t know why, because we had no clue. And then we got the Ozzy / Motörhead tour, and we were like; “hooray”, but really, it just kind of all… ‘Eye of the storm’ is a good way to put it, because, it just was all happening, and it was happening at a deadly fast gait. And it was a lot, it was beautiful, and also, very challenging, because you ended up in a political stripe, with labels. There’s a lot of people that surround the business of music that are full of shit – which is okay, that’s part of it – but when you’re 23 / 24, you don’t know how to negotiate that, so on one hand it was super fun and we did all the things you should do at that age, and on the other hand, it was too much for me. But we survived it, and I can deal with it all now, so no worries.”
