Electric Valley Records presents Heavy riffers Rocky’s Pride and Joy’s debut album, “All the Colours of Darkness,” scheduled for 29 September on vinyl (three different variants) and digital.
Rocky’s Pride and Joy began in a cursed railway cottage in the western suburbs of Adelaide, South Australia, in mid-2020. Unexplained appearances of handprints, falling candles, disquieting sounds in the night, and vivid dreams of a tortured previous tenant haunted the residence for 12 months while the band wrote their first collection of songs, including “Crawl” and “Times Up.”
With a friendship formed between vocalist/guitarist Brenton Wilson, drummer Jessi Tilbrook, and bassist Dominic Ventra at Jessi’s rock ‘n roll club night, the trio’s unbridled love for Doom and Fuzz led them to explore their collective vision and bring their first live performance to life at the end of 2020.
Now in 2023, after a slew of live shows, the release of “Times Up” and “Future Self,” and months of writing and recording, Rocky’s Pride and Joy is ready with their debut full-length, “All the Colours of Darkness.” The group from down under continued their exploration of the dark side of life on this eight-track LP, filled with tales of occult rituals, parasites, paranormal encounters, and cold hard revenge. Through nasty, Fuzz-saturated riffs, Heavy pounding drums, and window-rattling bass, Rocky’s Pride and Joy are putting their stamp on Doom.
