Junkyard are all set to release a brand new album on April 21st on Acetate Records.

We maybe could have gone to some of the 1980s revival labels, and I think there was some interest from some of those labels. But we wanted someone who really understood what Junkyard did,” says Tim Mosher. “It just felt like a natural fit. Honestly, how it happened was I sent an email to Rick Ballard and said, ‘Hi, this is Tim from Junkyard, would you be interested in doing a Junkyard record?’ That was the level of pursuing a record deal for us. Junkyard doesn’t do the big, grand plan thing very well––I can say that. We don’t really know what we’re expected to sell or how we sell,” he says. “The requirements are for us to do a certain amount of shows within the year cycle of the record. 2017 will be more shows than we’ve done in the previous eight or 10 years, probably. We’re going to be out there playing and promoting it.”

That’s always been our stigma––that we were lumped in with the long hair bands of that era, but musically we didn’t really have that much in common with them,” says David Roach. “There was another scene going on simultaneously to the West Hollywood, Sunset Strip scene that people think about when they consider that period of rock & roll in L.A. A more alternative, garage rock scene including the Nymphs and Jane’s Addiction, that we were a part of.

Junkyard will be making a welcome visit to the UK as part of the Hair Metal Heaven festival in Hull, which takes place on 25 August–27 August.
