Milwaukee-bred alternative punk/rap artist Juiceboxxx has signed with Dangerbird Records, the Silver Lake CA-based label that launched Silversun Pickups and Fitz & the Tantrums and is currently home to a diverse roster of artists including Butch Walker, Slothrust, The Frights and others.
With the new album Freaked Out American Loser, to be released late summer 2017, Juiceboxxx has harnessed a timeless American energy, combining rap and hardcore with inexorable emotional honesty and unyielding commitment.
The Juiceboxxx live show, with a drummer and guitar player as his band, is as aggressive as it is entertaining, and was the spark that inspired the partnership with his new label. “5 minutes into his performance, which I stumbled into accidentally, I would have done anything he asked me to. It was utterly captivating, like Crispin Glover fronting Bad Brains,” said Dangerbird President Jenni Sperandeo. “We are all thrilled to be a part of taking Juiceboxxx to the next, next level.”
Over a 15-year career Juiceboxxx has honed both his lyrical flow and a truly singular vision that is always looking forward with infectious positivity cloaked in a disarming shroud of dead-end desperation. A veteran of the underground art, rap and punk scenes, Juiceboxxx has played in over 18 countries, touring with acts as wide-ranging as Public Enemy, Jeff The Brotherhood, Japanther, Big Freedia, MNDR, Fat Tony and more.
Juiceboxxx has announced several New York shows with more tour dates to be announced soon.
