Italian band Giuda are back with their third album, titled Speaks Evil, which is out today (11/20). This one is a little less Oi!-style punk than 2013's Let's Do it Again, and more in pure '70s glam/glitter mode, it's more of their fun brand of rock n' roll. You can check out the video for "Roll the Balls" and stream the whole album via Spotify, below...
Giuda @ Cake Shop - 9/2/2013 (Keith Marlowe)
Italian band Giuda released Racey Roller back in 2010 and though they've toured a lot since -- including two visits to the US -- they have been slow to follow up the record. Now comes news of LP#2 which is titled Let's Do It Again and will be out November 16. Like Racey Roller, it's jam-packed with good time rock n' roll, somewhere between '70s glam and oi-style punk. It also sports cover art that looks like it's straight from a junk sale. (Whoever does their graphic design is terrific.) The first single from the record is "Wild Tiger Woman" and you can stream it (and its b-side) below.
Guida were here over Labor Day Weekend, playing Cake Shop on September 2 with New Bomb Turks-related Livids and Andy Animal's Cannibal Tribe. Belated pics from that wild show are in this post. Let's hope they come back sooner than later.

Hyperactive Italian glam rockers Giuda still haven't given us a follow-up to 2011's awesome Racey Roller but they are coming back to North America later this summer for a tour of the East Coast and Midwest. That tour wraps up in NYC show at Cake Shop on September 2 with Livids (who are fronted by New Bomb Turks' Eric Davidson) and more TBA. Perhaps they'll add another show while here? Let's hope so. All dates are listed below.
Giuda's stop at Cake Shop on last summer's tour was easily one of the most fun shows I went to last year, so if they're playing near you, definitely try to go see 'em. All dates are listed below.
And if you haven't checked out Racey Roller yet you can stream that below too.

Or you could go see Italian glam punks Giuda (pronounced "Judah" if you were wondering) who will be at St. Vitus. The crowd for their show at Cake Shop last week went absolutely nuts, this will be a fun show... and how often do you get to see an Italian glam band?
Or if black metal is more your thing, Minnesota's False are making a rare stop in NYC for a show at Acheron.

Do you own essential junkshop glam comp Velvet Tinmine? Do you have fond memories of early-'00s Swedish rockers The Ark and still like The Hives but wonder what they'd be like if they were Italian? Do you like to have a good time? If you answered yes to any of these questions or are still reading this post, listen up: Italy's Giuda have just landed in the U.S. for a quick tour that will include two stops in NYC: Cake Shop on Friday, August 31 with Games, and then a week later at Saint Vitus on September 8 with Boot Blacks, Livids, and 45 Adaptors. No advance tickets for the Cake Shop show but tickets for Saint Vitus are on sale now. All tour dates are listed at the bottom of this post.
Giuda's debut album, Racey Roller, came out last year and is jam-packed with the kind of high-energy, rifftastic, crazy-catchy powerhouse stomp one associates with the just pre-punk days of The Sweet, Slade, and NY Dolls. It's a whole lot of fun. You can stream a few tracks via YouTube below. I am told on good authority that they are not to be missed live. So dont' miss them!
A list of all tour dates and streams are below.
