Fan-filmed video footage of the new lineup of STUCK MOJO performing live on August 13 at the Brutal Assault festival in Josefov, Czech Republic can be seen below.
STUCK MOJO's new album, "Here Come The Infidels", was released on June 24. The CD was once again produced by Andy Sneap, who has previously worked with MEGADETH, EXODUS, TESTAMENT, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE and ACCEPT, among others.
In addition to STUCK MOJO guitarist and main songwriter Rich Ward and longtime drummer Frank Fontsere, "Here Come The Infidels" features STUCK MOJO's latest additions, vocalist Robby J and bassist Len Sonnier.
Ward stated about STUCK MOJO's new singer: "Robby J is a fucking ninja, the total package vocalist/frontman. Mark my words, this guy is going to set a new standard for what a band with a rapper looks like."
Hailing from the Texas-Louisiana border, Len is a veteran bass player, best known for his time spent as the touring bassist in KING'S X frontman Doug Pinnick's POUNDHOUND project.
Speaking about why a planned reunion of STUCK MOJO's classic lineup — featuring vocalist Bonz and bassist Corey Lowery — fell apart less than a year after playing a well-received show in the band's hometown of Atlanta, Georgia, Ward said: "The goal was to do a reunion record. And after doing three reunion shows, we just realized it wasn't gonna work — for the same reasons it didn't work the first time. But we'd already started the process into making this new album."
Regarding the "Here Come The Infidels" album title, Ward told EonMusic: "Being one of the first bands who did the whole rock/rap thing in the late eighties and early nineties, it was a badge of honor to be doing something that was so outside the mainstream at that time. In the States, the whole hair metal thing was king, and we were shunned as this multi-racial hybrid, and it proved difficult to get a foot in the door of the industry because we were so different. Then, as luck would have it, the trend caught up to us, which was great! But very quickly it became such a trend that we had fallen out of favor and we were once again on the outside of the 'most admired' list. It was a cool time with the likes of LIMP BIZKIT and PAPA ROACH having huge success, but when the backlash for those bands started, we got kind of thrown in with those guys."
