JANUS STARK PLAY THEIR JOKER!
Melodic punks JANUS STARK are back with a new video – their first ever!
The single ‘Shuffling The Pack’ represents the Peterborough band’s first new material in 21 years!
The band were first former in 1996 by former DESTRUCTORS and ENGLISH DOGS guitarist Gizz Butt. Given a boost in profile thanks to his appearances with THE PRODIGY, the band scored a minor hit with the ‘Every Second Counts’ accompanied by the album Great Adventure Cigar. Since splitting the band in 2002, Butt has performed with Steve Ignorant on his CRASS revival gigs, as well as playing with FIELDS OF THE NEPHILIM and German alternative metal band PYOGENESIS.
Speaking about ‘Shuffling The Pack, Butt explains, “It’s a tale of promises that lead to betrayal. When someone lays down the red carpet to you and promises the earth, yet before you know it, your honeymoon is over, and you’ve been shuffled to the back of the pack.
“Personally, I’ve been at the receiving end of a ‘promisor’ a number of times, fooled by the proverbial dangly carrot. A few friends of mine helped me recognise the signs. The video represents a promise that I am intended to follow. This time I suspect something, so I’m going to confront this villain. This time he’s chosen the wrong card!”
The single is the first fruit from a new album due next year.
