A Joker's Rage to Release New Single 'Shylock' 16th August

A Joker's Rage Have Returned! New Single "Shylock" To Be Released On August 16th

It's time to get your #GAMEFACE on! A Joker's Rage are back with a bang and new music to make a serious impression on the second half of 2019. The first step in that journey is the release of Shylock, the brand new single from A Joker's Rage which will be released on the 16th of August.

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. The band have provided a teaser for Shylock, which can be seen below:

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. For those waiting eagerly to hear Shylock, Ballet To The Masses is either a perfect introduction to A Joker's Rage, or a fantastic reminder of just how good they are. Please enjoy the lyric video for Ballet To The Masses.

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, as well as more news about more new music, so stay tuned!
