Ride Of Your Life’s striking front coverfeaturing “an image of our naked bodies is pure and we not be affected by fashion in any way which is refreshing. There was something quite liberating about this photo and the road image tells the story of the album with the band stripped naked showing who we really are. It's the bare naked truth!”.
“We are role models, we want to inspire young females and empower them” and Ride Of You Life is an inspiring statement.
Thanks to their relentless touring and high energy shows, JOANovARC have earned the title as one of the UK’s most promising rock acts, bristling riffs and jagged, riotous hooks are their poison - exceptional is not too strong a word.
Ride Of Your Lifeis an unequivocal triumph.

“Their sound is stylish, powerful and certainly has a direct lineage to Girlschool and Rock Goddess. In fact, there’s a strong case for saying that this quartet are the natural successors to those two bands.”
