Ugly kid Joe is touring in support of his latest studio album, “Wings of Destiny Rad”which was released last October.
“Wings of Destiny Rad” a saw Ugly kid Joe Team remake product Mark Dodson who was behind the desk for the band’s first album, “America’s Least Wanted”Which last year celebrated its 30th anniversary.
He speaks to France Loud TV about the “Wings of Destiny Rad” album title, Ugly kid Joe Frontline commander Whitfield Crane He said, “I love Judas priest. Ugly kid Joe He has a tendency to bring a little humor into the universe – the universe needs a little humor – and also respect for the things we like. So we love Judas priest. We are from California. We say “rad” all day long. So “Wings of Destiny Rad”. “
Regarding how the first one This is not Levine. They met Crane He said, “I wrote the vocals in Greece. We worked on the song as a band in Mallorca, Spain. We tracked the song in El Paso, Texas. And then we couldn’t finish all the vocals in El Paso. I found myself living in Lisbon, Portugal. I flew to London to meet the producer and tracked Singing in London.
Asked if the rest of “Wings of Destiny Rad” Musically similar to This is not Levine.And whitfield Well, he said, it’s hard for me to describe, because I’m so close to it; I’m so close to it. But yeah, track one, This is not Levine… We also love the old school AC/DC; I mean, I love AC/DC. I wrote scum for This is not Levine On an island in Greece and I had a reef. And so we wrote that song. And it really is an homage “Power”[-era] AC/DC. So this that Song. But there are nine other songs, and there are a lot of different frequencies that we embrace.”
As for the lyrical topics covered “Wings of Destiny Rad”And Crane He said: “This is not Levine It’s just — if you feel stuck in a nine-to-five rut, stop. Embrace life…we cover a copy of Contract” “Lola”, which is really cool; We did it great. But I will leave the thematic structure of the album, I will let that remain a mystery for someone to figure out themselves. I think if I show what I think, sometimes it takes away from someone’s sense of who they are.”
After a hiatus of 15 years, Ugly kid Joe It reformed in 2012 and has toured extensively throughout Europe and the rest of the world.
The band released an EP “ladder to hell” in 2012 and full length “uglier than they used” in 2015.
three years ago, Crane Tell Eunmusic Around Ugly kid JoeGreat success on one background “every thing about you” In 1991: “Eye of the Storm” is a good way to put it, because it was happening in a fast, deathly gait. And it was a lot — it was beautiful and it was also very difficult, because there are a lot of people that surround the business of music that is full of shit. But when you are 23 years old [or] 24, you don’t know how to negotiate that, on the one hand, it was so much fun and we did all the things you should do at that age, and on the other hand, it was just too much for me. But we survived, and I can handle all of that now.”
