Tesla Announces New Album Release Date

Legendary rockers Tesla has set October 7th as the release date for their brand new studio album, "Forever More", which will be released via their own record label, Tesla Electric Company Recordings. The band will be airing the albums first single, "I Wanna Live" on radio stations across the globe on August 18th and will be kicking off a world tour on October 1st.

Guitarist Frank Hannon says of the writing process: “We started writing new songs for this album the first week of January, while simultaneously planning a mid-West tour of America in February and recording our Comin Atcha Live! 2008 DVD while we were on the road. Coming home in March, we hired Terry to jump back into writing and recording music with us while we edited the DVD and routed a summer tour of Europe. We’re riding a wave of energy that doesn’t come easy for a band of rookies much less a band whose been doing this for over 20 years - and we wouldn’t have it any other way.”

“After returning from Europe,” continues Frank, “we jumped right back into the studio to work on Forever More with Terry while setting up a tour of American festival shows in July and August, playing alongside bands such as Matchbox Twenty, the Wallflowers, Queensrÿche, KISS and Judas Priest. It’s great that we can play with any band, of any music genre, because we’ve never been pigeon-holed into a style or label of music throughout our career.”
