Tesla To Release New Album "Simplicity" Through Frontiers Records

Frontiers Records is excited to announce the release of Tesla's brand new studio album entitled "Simplicity" on June 6th in Europe, and the label comments:

"The Sacramento Rockers are back with 14 new songs offering a ride of energy that doesn't come easy for a band of rookies much less a band whose been doing this for over 20 years. 'Simplicity' is Tesla's seventh all original studio album which follows a 6-years creative break from the release of the previous album 'Forever More.'

"After a string of shows in the USA in 2013, the band went back into the studio in early 2014 and came out with a new album, which goes straight back to the Tesla roots. The band worked and produced it as they did with 'Into the Now,' their successful come-back album from 2004. Helped by the legendary Tom Zutaut who was the man behind the best Tesla albums, this new album rocks from start to finish, showing a variety of emotions where each song has its own twist--not sounding like another."

The first new song off the new album, "Taste My Pain," was released last summer digitally via iTunes and Amazon. The track was recorded during a two-day session at J Street Recorders in Sacramento. The new track is, according to the band, "A heavier song with a hard-driving beat and Tesla trademark blazing guitars."

Guitarist Frank Hannon comments on the album: “I must say that this new Tesla album is really gonna be awesome. We went in more prepared with the songs and ideas way more than Forever More, and the style is pure Tesla back to our roots. I truly believe you guys are gonna love it!”

“The opening track is called MP3”, continues Hannon “and starts off with an opus intro that orchestrates into a heavy slow groove with lyrics about technology and how we miss simplicity, vinyl albums, family values...and has a heavy ass riff! Then we segue into a rock n roll song called Ricochet that talks about uncle Ted...can't wait to play this stuff live!”

The track listing is:

1. MP3
2. Ricochet
3. Rise and Fall
4. So Divine...
5. Cross My Heart
6. Honestly
7. Flip Side!
8. Other than Me
9. Break of Dawn
10. Burnout to Fade
11. Life is a River
12. Sympathy
13. Time Bomb
14. 'Til that Day
15. Burnout to Fade (writing demo version)*

I'VE ALWAYS APPRECIATED TESLA'S WORKING CLASS ROOTSINESS, BUT I DON'T LIKE THE RAPPY LYRICAL CADENCE OF THIS PARTICULAR SONG. THE GUITAR SOLO IS GREAT THOUGH.
