Legendary bassist and King’s X frontman dUg Pinnick is gearing up to add another highlight to his storied career, releasing his fifth solo album Joy Bomb on October 15th through Rat Pak Records. The upcoming album is dUg’s first solo album of new material since 2013’s Naked and features thirteen brand new tracks. Joy Bomb is available for pre-order in various configurations on all formats at the link here.
Joy Bomb is a collection of tunes I’ve been writing for the last two years,” dUg says. “The pandemic has made me go deeper into myself and how to deal with everything and everyone in a new way. These songs are all about truth the way I see it, and I’m thankful that at 71 I can still make music that hopefully matters. Joy Bomb is my latest offer.”
From the charging rhythms of album opener Jon Boy all the way through the barnstorming closing track Making Sense Of The Bones, dUg proves that age is nothing to him and provides an album packed with the groove, swagger, and soul that he has honed and perfected over his extensive career. dUg’s ability to combine a multitude of his influences into one seamless offering is on full display, tapping into everyone from Rage Against The Machine to Sly Stone to Black Sabbath. A Long Way From Home, Like A Wolf, and The Poison show why dUg is still one of the best in metal and rock, while I Can’t Fight This Feeling, Social Distancing, and Long Live Love exemplify his ability to think outside the box and expand his range

    Spelling his name with a capital U is asinine,
    Not buying the album now……

    • Dana on


  • Real Paul Stanley on

    This is great and all but how is this coming out so quickly and we still have no new King’s X album? Last I heard they were mixing it. That was a couple months ago. I love dUg, met him multiple times and he’s such a nice guy. But let’s get this King’s X album out before the end of 2021!
