    I hate everything about you! Ugly Kid Joe have come back after a long vacation, and they're ready to rock harder than ever. The California band's new EP, Stairway to Hell, is due on April 16 through MRI, and it contains songs that span the full repertoire of influences that made Ugly Kid Joe the soundtrack for young snowboarders, surfers and keggers worldwide.

    Dude-bro roc returns. Don't be afraid.

    The epicenter of Ugly Kid Joe is lead singer Whitfield Crane-a wonderfully cathartic wrecking ball of rock 'n' roll energy as it used to be served, on the rocks with no need for tonic. He's joined by long-time co-conspirators, Klaus Eichstadt and Dave Fortman (guitars) as well as Cordell Crockett (bass) and Shannon Larkin (drums.) Several members have built pretty substantial resumes during Ugly Kid Joe's break. Fortman produced albums by Evanescence, Slipknot and Mudvayne, while Larkin hit the skins for multi-Platinum sellers Godsmack.

    Track listing:

    Devil's Paradise
    You Make Me Sick
