Ugly Kid Joe

Ugly Kid Joe

A fun-loving hard rock/funk/alt-metal group from Southern California, Ugly Kid Joe found mainstream success in the early ’90s with the double-platinum selling efforts As Ugly as They Wanna Be and America’s Least Wanted. The band ceased operations in 1997 but re-formed in 2010 and released Uglier Than They Used ta Be in 2015. Seven years would pass before the arrival of the group’s fifth full-length effort, 2022’s raucous Rad Wings of Destiny.

Ugly Kid Joe (a spoof on glam-metal outfit Pretty Boy Floyd) formed in 1989 around vocalist Whitfield Crane, guitarists Klaus Eichstadt and Dave Fortman, bassist Cordell Crockett, and drummer Mark Davis. The group’s knack for crafting infectious pop-metal with touches of funk and a bratty, parodic sense of humor was evident on their debut single, “Everything About You,” which went Top Ten and helped their EP As Ugly as They Wanna Be become the first short-form LP ever to be certified multi-platinum. They went Top Ten again with a straightforward cover of Harry Chapin’s “Cats in the Cradle,” which appeared on 1992’s platinum-selling full-length effort, America’s Least Wanted. The band released its second full-length album, Menace to Sobriety, in 1995, followed by Motel California the following year.

Motel California turned out to be Ugly Kid Joe’s last album for a major label. They split in 1997, a year after its release, and over the next decade the bandmembers played in various post-alt metal bands. As the first decade of the new millennium came to a close, there were rumblings of new Ugly Kid Joe activity, rumors that came true in 2010 when the group reconvened for a tour. Recording soon followed and the fruits of UKJ’s labor was Stairway to Hell, an EP that appeared in the summer of 2012 and was later expanded to a full-length with various oddities; the longer Stairway to Hell showed up in 2013. In 2015 the band released its long-awaited fourth studio album of all new material (the group’s first in 19 years), the crowd-funded Uglier Than They Used ta Be. A seven year gap preceded the arrival of the band’s fifth long-player, 2022’s Rad Wings of Destiny, which saw UKJ teaming back up with America’s Least Wanted producer Mark Dodson.

 

Fozzy

After touring the world and building a loyal fanbase for the better part of twenty years, Fozzy is the epitome of what a killer rock n roll band should be: catchy, groovy, hooky, sweaty and most importantly, a GREAT EFFEN TIME!

With five consecutive TOP 20 singles, Fozzy is steadily becoming one of the most successful bands on Modern Rock Radio, with their breakthrough massive smash song “Judas” achieving Gold Record status of 500,000 units sold in February of 2022!

Rich Ward is one of the most versatile, talented riff machines & songwriters in rock n roll today. Chris Jericho’s skills as a frontman are second to none and his vocal style & range are both powerful and instantly recognizable. The spirited drumming of Grant Brooks compliments the blazing solos of Billy Grey and the rock star energy of bassist PJ Farley. These are five seasoned pros, whose electricity and charisma light up every stage they play on and every crowd they perform for. As a result, it’s no surprise that Fozzy has skyrocketed into one of the hottest rock acts in the world today.

The band inched up the ladder after releasing four progressively popular studio albums in the 2000s. However, it was 2012’s “Sin And Bones”, which featured the hit single “Sandpaper” (over 4.5 MILLION views on YouTube) that found the band reaching a level of legitimacy that drew a mass audience to drink in their trademark heavy melodic groove. The album eventually reached #143 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart, but it was their next album, “Do You Wanna Start A War” (produced by Ward), released in the summer of 2014, that really blew the door open, debuting at #54 on Billboard and giving the band their first top 30 single in “Lights Go Out” which was blared in sports arenas nationwide.

But as much success as the band had enjoyed, nothing compared to the juggernaut of 2017’s “Judas” album. Released in May 2017, the aforementioned title track spent 5 weeks at NUMBER ONE on the highly influential ‘Big Uns Countdown’ on Sirius/XM’s Octane channel, amassed over 55 MILLION views for its video on YouTube, cracked the TOP 5 on the US Rock Radio Charts and is still heard by millions of fans worldwide weekly on TBS Network’s hugely popular “AEW Dynamite” program. The follow-up singles “Painless” hit Number 9 on the charts (almost 10 MILLION views on YouTube), “Burn Me Out” peaked at Number 18, “Nowhere To Run” cracked the Top Ten again and their most recent single “Sane”, (with its roller coaster themed video- one of the most thrilling & heart stopping ever made) landing at Number 8!

 

Pistols at Dawn

The world is ever changing but rock music is constant and unassailable. Few bands epitomize the intensity, energy, power, and vintage creativity right out of the gate like Pistols At Dawn. Simply put, Pistols At Dawn is one of the best new rock bands in America, and the best new rock band from Atlanta, Georgia since Mastodon and Sevendust. Pistols At Dawn is an American professional rock band formed in 2015 by drummer Adam Jaffe, guitarist Devin White, guitarist Mike Buffa, and bassist Billy Sullivan. Virtuoso guitarist Buffa died tragically in 2018, and the band reunited with incendiary guitarist Tommy Richardson in 2019 with its first worldwide releases in early 2020. Vocals are led by elite Frontman and former VH1 Rockstar Supernova finalist Chris Pierson. Pistols at Dawn released 3 new singles and videos in 2020, “Cold” “Gauntlet” and “All You Offer”. The singles were recorded/engineered by famed producer Jeff Tomei (Smashing Pumpkins/ Matchbox 20) at Cock the Walk Studio in Atlanta, GA. Pistols At Dawn entered the studio again in mid 2020 and wrapped up its new EP “Nocturnal Youth” with Producer Jeff Tomei and “Faith No More” Mastering Guru Maor Appelbaum. The first single and video from the EP, “Voices”, will be released in early 2021. Pistols At Dawn is a high energy, heavy hitting, heart pumping, radio ready hard rock band with lyrics and visuals of the times pushing the listener not to accept the status quo.
