(New York) Mass Appeal has shared the second single from Juiceboxxx's forthcoming LP, entitled "Go To The Club Alone". When talking about the track Juiceboxxx said, "“Go To The Club Alone” is about being a pathetic loser sleeping on the floor of a basement and taking the bus to some boring DJ night because you don’t have anything better to do with your dumb life. I also just wanted to make a sick punk rap song. It is inspired by everyone from Cypress Hill to The Modern Lovers. You can change your life.” The track, along with the previous single "Freaking Out", will be featured on the new LP 'Freaked Out American Loser', out 7/28 on Dangerbird Records.
Out of my mind but I’m a hell of a guy, I got the PMA, that’s just an FYI / I got a J-O-B and that’s to stay alive, 24/7 not 9 to 5… So begins “Freaking Out” on Freaked Out American Loser, the latest album from Juiceboxxx, the Milwaukee-bred punk rap artist who is quite simply the first and last of his kind all at once. Juiceboxxx grew up in the ‘2000s within the noise, punk rock, and underground rap communities of Wisconsin, and while those banners still fly high independently today, there are very few other artists who not only understand that Venn diagram but who are also actively attempting to merge those sounds cohesively.
Juiceboxxx might be out of his mind, but in all the best ways—he owns it and commits to this unstoppable onslaught of creative ideas and outbursts. Freaked Out American Loser is a punk rap blast that captures the anarchic, aggressive spirit of Juiceboxxx’s live show while also adding a new level of polish, focus, and dare we say, professionalism.
“I’m putting together these pieces in a way I find interesting as a contemporary record, and not conforming to any trends of the moment,” Juiceboxxx says. “I’m looking at Beastie Boys as the Ramones or something, and trying to build on that language; looking at Public Enemy within the lens of punk rock.”
