Italy’s Giuda kick off the “Speaks Evil Tour” bringing their retro rockn’roll to the USA/New album Speaks Evil out now‏

Italian band Giuda (pronounced JEW-DA) is set to hit American soil on the Speaks Evil Tour kicking off at Seattle’s Funhouse on May 23. They will be bringing their unique retro-sounding rock ’n’ roll and junk shop glam to the masses in support of their recently released album Speaks Evil, available now on Burning Heart Records.

The band’s third studio album, Speaks Evil, features their stroke to the heart and a punch to the gut signature sound that fans across Europe have already fallen in love with. Heavily influenced by the classic 70’s rock ‘n’ roll, the band exudes a high level of legitimacy and authenticity for a fresh and inimitable sound. Recorded with analog equipment and strictly-70’s era instruments and produced by Danilo Silvestri, along with guitarist Lorenzo Moretti, Speaks Evil continues on the musical path outlined by the band’s previous releases Racey Roller and Let’s Do It Again, while improving the songwriting process with more complex structures and catchier melodies, without losing any of the spontaneity and energy.

Giuda’s history dates back in 2007, when from the smoking ashes of Rome’s punk rock cult band Taxi a new project is born. When Taxi’s career is cut short by the tragic passing of their drummer, the singer Ntendarere “Tenda” Damas and lead guitarist Lorenzo Moretti regroup as Giuda. The current line-up of the band is rounded out by guitarist Michele Malagnini (formerly guitar player of the hardcore band Steaknives ) adding a second layer of boogie sparks to the mix, while bassist Danilo Valeri (reappearing from an early incarnation of Taxi) and drummer Daniele Tarea, who used to play for a punk rock band called Bagbies.

From the very beginning the sound of Giuda was full of early 70’s pre-punk, glitter days when music was all about monstrous riffs, boisterous attitudes, high energy experimentation and fun.
