Reunited hard rockers UGLY KID JOE filmed a video for the song “Devil’s Paradise” last week in Lake Tahoe, Nevada with Mike and Dave Hatchett of Standard Films. The track is one of six cuts the band recorded last year for a new EP, to be released in the coming months.
Another new song, “Love Ain’t True”, was premiered on the San Francisco, California radio station 107.7 The Bone last September and can be streamed in the YouTube clip below.
In a 2011 interview with the NY Rock Music Examiner, UGLY KID JOE drummer Shannon Larkin (also of GODSMACK and ANOTHER ANIMAL) was asked about the rumors that UGLY KID JOE had reunited and was recording new material. “The rumors are true!” Larkin said. “Whit, Klaus [Eichstadt, guitar], Cordell [Crockett, bass], Dave [Fortman, guitar] and myself got together this year and made six new songs for an EP to put out at some point. We are really stoked at how it came out — pure UGLY KID JOE, dude! We have no label, agent, or management and did the record by ourselves without a real plan other than getting together in a room again after all these years and jamming out!”
UGLY KID JOE released three full-length albums and toured extensively throughout the 1990s before disbanding in 1997.
