Ugly Kid Joe are planning to enter the studio in November to work on their new album. Whitfield Crane told Eonmusic the following about that:
“We’re going in the studio. We’re all leaving on our various journeys right now — families, and all this stuff — and then we’ll come back November 1st to the U.K., and then we stuff ourselves in the studio, and we’re making a new record — just now, this next November, November 1st. When would I expect it to be released? I don’t know. When it shows itself.”
