Rocky's Pride & 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 "Time's 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 "Time's Up" and "Future Self" and months of writing and recording, the band have signed their debut album "All The Colours Of Darkness" to International label, Electric Valley Records, set for release in late 2023. Recorded at Adelaide’s Twin Earth Studio, the band have continued their exploration of the dark side of life on this 8 track LP. Occult rituals, parasites, paranormal encounters and cold hard revenge are just a few themes covered on the album. Through nasty fuzz saturated riffs, heavy pounding drums and window rattling bass, Rocky's Pride & Joy are putting their stamp on doom.
