A couple of weeks ago it was revealed that ’90s rockers Ugly Kid Joe would be returning with their first new full-length album in nearly two decades. Loudwire is proud to present the world exclusive premiere of the lyric video for “Hell Ain’t Hard To Find” from that album. Uglier Than They Used Ta Be will be released Oct. 16. Watch the video in the player above.
Frontman Whitfield Crane says this about the song: “We walked into the studio in Covington, Louisiana, and let the music flow through us. We tracked 21 days in a row putting in 13 hour days. Everyone wanted it and everyone felt it. The song ’Hell Ain’t Hard To Find’ tells a story of what’s right outside your door — ‘I’m a one man roller coaster ride‘ says it all.”
The track is an energetic mid-tempo rocker that’s more mature in both delivery and lyrics that some of their iconic hits such as “Everything About You.” That makes sense, since it has been almost 20 years since their last album. Uglier Than They Used Ta Be, which also includes a cover version of “Ace of Spades” featuring Motorhead guitarist Phil Campbell, is available for pre-order via Amazon.
The band’s current lineup includes Crane, guitarists Klaus Eichstadt and Dave Fortman, bassist Cordell Crockett and drummer Shannon Larkin (Godsmack), who all appeared on previous Ugly Kid Joe discs. Guitarist Sonny Mayo (Snot) and drummer Zac Morris are also part of Uglier Than They Used Ta Be.
Ugly Kid Joe will be kicking off a U.K. tour Sept. 14 with a sold-out show in Milton Keynes. You can check out all of the concert dates at this location.
