Author Flavia Andrade - 19.8.2022

Ugly Kid Joe released a new music video off their upcoming album “Rad Wings of Destiny”, which will be released on October 21, 2022.

Long Road” is the third single from this album, and is a sun tinged ear worm: a catchy, upbeat driving track that is set to be a summer anthem.

Guitarist Dave Fortman:

“I wrote it as a giant metaphor about procrastinating. The lyrics say it all. ‘Waiting for the Sky to fall’ is sitting around doing nothing to make life better and ‘the sound of the whistle blow’ is the moment you get up and make a change.”

Ugly Kid Joe are an American rock band formed in Isla Vista California in 1989. They rose to prominence with their debut EP “As Ugly As They Wanna Be” in 1991, which became the first EP to ever go platinum. Their multi platinum debut album “America’s Least Wanted” followed in 1992, which featured hits including “Cats In The Cradle” and “Everything About You“.

After splitting up in 1997, the band reformed in 2010 releasing the “Stairway To Hell” EP in 2012, and the album “Uglier Than They Used Ta Be” in 2015.

October 21, 2022 marks the release of the band’s first new album in seven years. “Rad Wings of Destiny” will see the band once again teaming up with Producer Mark Dodson – who was behind the desk for Ugly Kid Joe’s multiplatinum debut album release “Americas Least Wanted” in 1992. An album which celebrates its 30th Anniversary this year.

The 10 track album includes the singles “That Ain’t Livin’”, “Kill The Pain” and “Long Road“.

It features Whitfield Crane on vocals, Klaus Eichstadt and Dave Fortman on guitar, Cordell Crockett on bass and drumming duties shared between Zac Morris and Shannon Larkin.
