Italian glam rockers GIUDA (pronounced JEW-DA) has announced plans for a U.S. invasion with their “Speaks Evil Tour,” in support of their recently released record, Speaks Evil, which is available now from Burning Heart Records (The Hives, Refused, Millencolin, Turbonegro). The tour will kick off in Seattle on May 23rd and will culminate in Brooklyn on June 13th, and will include a performance at Punk Rock Bowling in Las Vegas on May 30th.
Hailing from Rome, Italy, Guida, are taking the world by storm with their unique retro-sounding rock ’n’ roll and junk shop glam. Heavily influenced by the classic 70’s rock ‘n’ roll, the band exudes a high level of legitimacy and authenticity for a fresh and inimitable sound.
The band’s third studio album, Speaks Evil, features the band’s signature sound that fans across Europe have already fallen in love with. It’s a stroke to the heart and a punch to the gut in 10 brand new songs.
Recorded with analog equipment and strictly-70’s era instruments by Danilo Silvestri, the record’s producer along with guitarist Lorenzo Moretti, Speaks Evil continues on the musical path outlined by the band’s previous releases Racey Roller and Let’s Do It Again, while improving the songwriting process with more complex structures and catchier melodies, without losing any of the spontaneity and energy.
Although the band openly admit their influences, including early 70’s rock giants like Slade, The Sweet and T-Rex, semi-obscure junkshop glam acts like Hector and Jook, Vanda & Young’s pre-AC/DC Aussie rock and Slaughter And The Dogs and Eddie and The Hot Rods’ pub rock/punk, the Italian quintet have managed to create a truly original sound, making them one of the most unique bands on the international rock’n’roll scene.
The five-piece, Lorenzo Moretti (guitar/vocals), Ntendarere Damas (lead vocals), Michele Malagnini (guitar), Danilo Valerii (bass) and Daniele Tarea (drums), fully embody the original rock’n’roll spirit.
