German heavy metal/hard rock label Pride & Joy Music is happy to announce the signing of the Maltese hard rock group Upper Lip. Hailing from Gozo (the land of the Megalithic Temples in the heart of the Maltese Archipelago Islands), Upper Lip spurs nostalgic, groovy hard rock music with a passion to its genre! Their main influences derive from the splendid nature surrounding the beautiful Island and Rock acts such as Rush, AC/DC, Rory Gallagher to the Smiths, Captain Beyond, and even Waylon Jennings!
Since their inception in 2013, the band has played several gigs and festivals on the Islands to a very warm welcome from the rock music fans which swiftly translate to more gig invitations. Fast-forward to 2019, the band embarked on a massive project to work on their first studio album. The recordings took place at Temple Studios (where the likes of Rammstein, Philip Boa, Mike Hedges, and Siouxsie and the Banshees had previously worked).
Upper Lip recorded 11 original tracks which portrays the groove and live energy that the band is so much noted for the album entitled Deep Within will be released world-wide on May 21st, 2021 via Pride & Joy Music, and a music video has already been released for the track, “Keep Going.”
