Ugly Kid Joe – UK Tour and New Single ‘Ace Of Spades’ feat. Phil Campbell

Live: October / November 2016
Single – ‘Ace Of Spades’ feat. Phil Campbell
Album – ‘Uglier Than They Used Ta Be’ Out Now

Ugly Kid Joe return to UK shores this autumn in support of their brand new single ‘Ace Of Spades’ feat Phil Campbell, which is lifted of their 4th studio album ‘Uglier Than They Used To Be’

The extensive UK tour see the guys bring the noise to 15 cities including Glasgow, London, Manchester as well as a headline slot at the annual Hard Rock Hell festival in Wales.

‘Uglier Than They Used To Be’ was recorded at Balance Studios in Covington, Louisiana under the helm of Dave Fortman (Slipknot, Godsmack, Evanescence) and featured a 7-member line up of Ugly Kid Joe – the “Seven Headed Monster”.

The chemistry flows so well throughout this new release, it’s as though they never left. ‘Uglier Than They Used Ta Be’ boasts a collection of well-crafted rock tunes, from the riff driven ‘Let The Record Play’ to the hard-hitting ‘Hell Aint Hard to Find’. It truly is a collection of some of the best songs ever written by the band which is highlighted with tracks such as ‘Under The Bottom’ and the emotionally driven ‘Enemy’.

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 write and record in the studio. The result is the most cohesive sounding Ugly Kid Joe record to date.

Ace of Spades (featuring Motorhead’s Phil Campbell) was recorded by Ugly Kid Joe in the Summer of 2015 as part of the studio sessions for their latest album “Uglier Than They Used Ta Be
