Giuda is a five-piece band from Rome, Italy, that play an air-punching mix of anthemic ’70s rock hooks delivered with the brutal force of early UK punk, all interpreted in a contemporary and original way with relevance for today’s discerning listener. Fueled by the sounds of bands like Slade, Glitter Band, Hector, Third World War and Slaughter & The Dogs, Giuda offer fresh, powerful rock and roll with attitude in spades.
Recorded live to ensure the harnessing of the solid power of their on-stage performance, here is the aptly-named new Giuda single: “Rock ‘n’ Roll Music”, which will be released on March 30th. Stronger, tighter, rougher and darker than ever, but still never losing sight of that ultimate killer hook. Those Insistent riffs, loud handclaps and sing-a-long refrains are omnipresent but the band sound has evolved yet again, pushing forever harder against the ever-shifting boundaries of Giuda’s World.
Live Shows Announced: A two-day launch party for the release will take place in London at the Lexington, with gigs on Friday 6th and Saturday 7th April.
Video Coming: A video for “Rock ‘n’ Roll Music” shot on 35mm tape and directed by Nicola Piovesan will accompany the release.
A Little Bit More About Giuda:
Their debut album “Racey Roller”, famously described by Robin Wills (The Barracudas) as, “Cock Sparrer twinned with the Equals”, was graced with iconic cover art courtesy of French designer and glam fanatic Tony CrazeeKid, and quickly became an underground sensation. Highly praised by publications as diverse as Mojo, The Guardian, Uncut, Rolling Stone, Vice (album of the year) and Maximum Rock’n’Roll, the album remains a true cult classic and an inspiration to the numerous hordes of bovver rockers currently following in Giuda’s wake.
From their debut album release up until the present day, the band has completed several European tours and five USA/North American tours, playing around 400 gigs in total, including triumphant appearances at many major festivals such as Rebellion (Blackpool, UK), PunkRock Bowling (Las Vegas, USA) and Hell Fest (France).
Stronger, tighter, rougher and darker than ever, but still never losing sight of that ultimate killer hook.
