JOANovARC debut album Ride Of Your Life released

14th September 2016 0 By Jon Deaux

On November 11th JOANovARC release their raw, raunchy and powerful debut album ‘Ride Of Your Life’, through Red Vixen Records.

Ride Of Your Life  finds JOANovARC at their full creative tilt delivering hard-hitting, retooled classic rock with a modern twist. Describing themselves as “Puss In Boots”, this four piece force of nature have delivered a statement of intent with their debut album.

Produced by Grammy Award winning Gil Norton (The Pixies, Foo Fighters) Ride Of Your Life has the essence of an old school record. Recorded at the legendary Rockfield Studios, the album encapsulates and distills perfectly JOANovARC’s live energy. “He was completely different to what we expected, he brought the best out of us in the studio and let us breathe as musicians and made us feel like we were free to express everything in the studio”.

Ride Of Your Life is the journey of the band’s life from the beginning to present, the ups and downs on the road. “We are all great friends but have been through everything together, heartache, death, illness, sweat, blood, great times, addiction, narcotics, break ups, celebrations, fights and tears! “

This energetic and diverse album features 11 finely crafted songs full of rock’n’roll attitude and glamour. The opening title track sets the tone for a rocking roller coaster ride, which includes the singles; the epic and empowering White Trash  and the infectious Live Rock’n’Roll.  Plus, a further 8 songs ranging from the vibrant yet vitriolic Dragon In The Sky and feel good joyride Seeds Of Summer, before the spiritually beautiful ballad Peace of Mind closes this sumptuous debut album in the best possible way.

Ride Of Your Life’s striking front cover featuring “an image of our naked bodies is pure and we not be affected by fashion in any way which is refreshing. There was something quite liberating about this photo and the road image tells the story of the album with the band stripped naked showing who we really are. It’s the bare naked truth!”.

“We are role models, we want to inspire young females and empower them” and Ride Of You Life is an inspiring statement.

Thanks to their relentless touring and high energy shows, JOANovARC have earned the title as one of the UK’s most promising rock acts, bristling riffs and jagged, riotous hooks are their poison – exceptional is not too strong a word.

Ride Of Your Life is an unequivocal triumph.

“Their sound is stylish, powerful and certainly has a direct lineage to Girlschool and Rock Goddess. In fact, there’s a strong case for saying that this quartet are the natural successors to those two bands.”
