JUICEBOXXX announces ‘Never Surrender Forever’ EP
Set for release 14 Sept via Dangerbird Records
JUICEBOXXX has announced a brand new EP ‘Never Surrender Forever’, which will be released via Dangerbird Records on 14 September, prior to his tour of the UK & Europe (see full dates below). The title track to the EP has also been released, showcasing a move towards transcendental power pop and punked-up indie rock. Juiceboxxx’ music always aims to blur genre lines and his bombastic live performances make the ideal argument for the continued importance and significance of peak-energy American music.
After unleashing his no apologies punk rap statement ‘Freaked Out American Loser’ last year, Juiceboxxx moves forward with this new EP, recorded with his live backing band and co-produced by Juiceboxxx and Aaron Espinoza (Earlimart, Elliott Smith, The Breeders). It’s guitar music born in the underground but ready for the main stage.
With a new recording partner in Espinoza, Juiceboxxx has shed the art-damaged feel of his past recordings in favor of a big, high fidelity sound that the songs deserve. “In some ways, the recordings and the live show have intersected, but never been on the exact same page,” Juiceboxxx says. “My new music aims to more thoroughly communicate what I feel is the most special thing about the show and the band and put that to record.”
In his one of a kind career—how many people can say they have had a book written about them (The Next Next Level by Leon Neyfakh) before the age of 30—Juiceboxxx has touched on a variety of American music forms (everything from noisy rap to freaked out hardcore), but the past few years of live shows have zoned in on a one of a kind synthesis that combines the fury of punk with a cathartic, hook-happy approach.
