A Joker’s Rage Unveil Shylock
New Single Is Out Now!
A Joker’s Rage are back to doing what they do best – entertaining their ever growing fanbase with huge, catchy songs full of hooks. They are aiming to do that in spades with their brand new single Shylock, released this past Friday.
To go with one of the most addictive tracks of the Summer, A Joker’s Rage have released a video which captures both the power of their performances and the fun and excitement the band bring with them. Check out the video for Shylock below:
With big riffs, even bigger vocal hooks and a serious earworm of a chorus, Shylock is the perfect track for A Joker’s Rage to re-announce themselves to the UK music scene and beyond. Shylock follows on from the band’s two previous EP’s and the 2018 single Ballet To The Masses – A Joker’s Rage’s tribute to one of their heroes, Freddie Mercury. Following on from the release of Shylock, news of A Joker’s Rage’s debut album will be forthcoming in the very near future.
Anyone who sees A Joker’s Rage in the live environment will quickly notice the face paint – aka the #GAMEFACE. It’s something that may seem small to some, but those little things can sometimes make a big difference. To lead vocalist Zakk Taylor, guitarist Adam Gauton, bassist Geordie Ginface and drummer / keyboardist Matt Collinge, #GAMEFACE is the mode in which the band choose to escape reality, channel their alter egos and deliver their message.
“It’s our war paint. When the chips are down, life gets tough or you’re simply bored out of your skull, put your #GAMEFACE on and handle it with a stronger attitude”.
Having most recently donned the #GAMEFACE for a show stealing performance in headlining SOS Festival 2019, as well as lighting up the stage at the inaugural Call Of The Wild Festival, A Joker’s Rage have cemented their reputation as one of the UK’s best live unsigned bands.
There will be news of how to see A Joker’s Rage live in the flesh over the next few weeks so stay tuned!
About A Joker’s Rage
A Joker’s Rage is a four-piece genre-disrupting rock band from the North of England that fuses heavy riffs with dance grooves and theatrical influences. Imagine a young Spandau Ballet in facepaint playing Metallica’s instruments, writing songs that not only rock the masses but hypnotically induce any stale audience into a frenzied dance party and you’re a bit closer to understanding the message.
Based in York, A Joker’s Rage became a more serious entity three years ago when called upon to open the independent Rockmantic Weekender in Carlisle and have been gaining ground ever since. A buzz built quickly and now A Joker’s Rage frequently headline the same medium sized festivals that they once opened for, drawing a loyal travelling fan base. With gigs alongside The Darkness, The VirginMarys and The Wildhearts to name a handful under their belt, the band are no strangers to big stages and converting even bigger audiences.
A Joker’s Rage have been compared musically to an unorthodox cocktail of Biffy Clyro, Don Broco, Bring Me The Horizon and even Queen, but it’s impossible to define the group that easily. The band creates from its own impulses and feelings, setting trends rather than following them. The music boils over, the lyrics are passionate and personal and the stage show is intense and theatrical. Making great music is A Joker’s Rage’s ultimate goal, not money and fame; It’s an attitude that can be heard in every track on The Rain Dance. Those looking for new artists that are unique, fearless and compelling need look no further than A Joker’s Rage. With some fantastic new songs and an even better live show, A Joker’s Rage are not only coming to crash the party, they’re here to make it their party, and everyone is invited!
