The first in a series of video clips featuring behind-the-scenes footage from the making of “Here Come The Infidels”, the new album from STUCK MOJO, can be seen below. Due on June 24, the CD was once again produced by Andy Sneap, who has previously worked with MEGADETH, EXODUS, TESTAMENT, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE and ACCEPT, among others.
In addition to STUCK MOJO guitarist and main songwriter Rich Ward and longtime drummer Frank Fontsere, “Here Come The Infidels” features the band’s latest additions, vocalist Robby J and bassist Len Sonnier.
Speaking about why a planned reunion of STUCK MOJO‘s classic lineup — featuring vocalist Bonz and bassist Corey Lowery — fell apart less than a year after playing a well-received show in the band’s hometown of Atlanta, Georgia, Ward said: “The goal was to do a reunion record. And after doing three reunion shows, we just realized it wasn’t gonna work — for the same reasons it didn’t work the first time. But we’d already started the process into making this new album. And I knew that I wanted to work with Andy, because the best records in my career were done partnering with Andy. And Andy is not a producer in the sense that he sits in the back of the room with a cigar and says, ‘Do that again.’ So Andy then takes up part of that responsibility of being another member of the band to bounce ideas off of, help me creatively.”
Containing eleven tracks of unmistakeable Ward riffing, “Here Come The Infidels” is available for pre-orders through Pledge Music. To say thank you, everyone who pre-orders the album will immediately receive a digital download of the track “Verbal Combat”, the lyric video for which can be seen below.
Said Ward: “Robby J is a fucking ninja, the total package vocalist/frontman. Mark my words, this guy is going to set a new standard for what a band with a rapper looks like.”
Hailing from the Texas-Louisiana border, Len is a veteran bass player, best known for his time spent as the touring bassist in KING’S X frontman Doug Pinnick‘s POUNDHOUND project.
