Ugly Kid Joe are back after a 15-year absence with their brand new video for the song ‘Devil’s Paradise.’ The boys from Isla Vista will release a new 6-song EP, ‘Stairway To Hell,’ digitally on June 5th and on CD July 9th.
‘Stairway To Hell’ heralds Ugly Kid Joe’s return, containing songs spanning the full repertoire of influences which made Ugly Kid Joe one of the prime soundtracks for young snowboarders, surfers, keggers and characters worldwide. Whether it’s ‘Devil’s Paradise’, with it’s hypnotic riffery and hook line, grooving and grinding it’s hips seductively, the melodic power-fueled darkness of ‘No One Survives’ or the irrepressibly memorable chug-n-chorus of ‘I’m Alright’ it’s clear that Ugly Kid Joe have everything they started with plus fatter chops and a (frankly) superior curve on songwriting.
UKJ will be touring Europe this June and July.
