California's hard rock heroes Ugly Kid Joe make a welcome return to the scene.
Founded 1990 in Isla Vista, they gave the world hits like 'Everything About You', 'Neighbor' and 'Cat's In The Cradle'. Their debut EP 'As Ugly As They Wanna Be' became the biggest selling EP ever and 'America's Least Wanted', released in 1992, is still a must-have release for legions of rock fans worldwide.
After releasing two more albums, 'Menace To Sobriety' (1995) and 'Motel California' (1996) the band retired in 1997.

'Stairway To Hell', the band's first studio recordings since 'Motel California' paves the way for the band's triumphant comeback.
The catchy and unmistakable UKJ sound served up with three extraordinary acoustic tracks like the million-seller 'Cat's In The Cradle'.
As a collectable treat for all fans the album will be released together with a special bonus DVD including the 2012 Download Festival gig, two new video clips and a 'making of' segment.
In October and November Ugly Kid Joe will tour, hitting the stage in no less than 13 countries.
