Tesla’s new album ‘Simplicity’ due for release in June on Frontiers Records

Sacramento, California's own TESLA are back with a new album "Simplicity," to be released in Europe in June on Frontiers Records.

"Simplicity" will be released on June 6th in Europe, with a U.S. release date still to be announced. The album has 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 (June 5-6, 2013) session at J Street Recorders in Sacramento. The new song is, according to the band, "A heavier song with a hard-driving beat and TESLA trademark blazing guitars."

Guitarist Frank Hannon says about “Simplicity”: “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!”

“Simplicity” in the Frontiers version released across Europe, will include the following songs:
M P 3
Ricochet
Rise and Fall
So Divine...
Cross My Heart
Honestly
Flip Side!
Other than Me
Break of Dawn
Burnout to Fade
Life is a River
Sympathy
Time Bomb
'Til that Day
Burnout to Fade (writing demo version)*
