In a world of musical compromises, Milwaukee journeyman Juiceboxxx stands alone. After countless
singles, EPs and mixtapes, "I Don't Wanna Go Into The Darkness" is his ﬁrst ofﬁcial full-length, set for
release digitally July 31st on his own Thunder Zone Label (Jeff The Brotherhoodʼs label Inﬁnity Cat is
releasing the vinyl August 14th).
American music re-imagined for a new era, "I Don't Wanna Go Into The Darkness" is the most fully
formed distillation of the Juiceboxxx vision to date. Somewhere between Def Jam and "Jack and Diane",
this is the sound of a lifetime of rap and classic rock radio, punk
shows and raves.
Not since peak-era Beastie Boys has rap and rock made so
much sense together, but on "Darkness" they are just two
elements fully integrated into a complete sound. Juiceboxxx
connects the dots between a continuum of American music
running from soul and garage rock through rap, Miami bass
and Chicago House. This is Mike Skinner if he were American,
or Beck if he worshiped Springsteen instead of Dylan.
Years of unhinged performances and high-impact touring
crossing between rap, punk and dance circles have built up
the legend and Juiceboxxx has the stories to prove it. How
many people have toured with Public Enemy, Big Freedia AND
noise weirdos? How many people play at glossy dance clubs
one night and basement punk houses the next? Juiceboxxx
does this because there is no other option: he is on a mission.
"I Don't Wanna Go Into The Darkness" is the ultimate dispatch
from the front lines of the Thunder Zone. Never Surrender Forever.
