Tesla are set to release their new studio album, Shock, worldwide on 8 March via UMe. The album will be available in CD, digital, black vinyl and limited edition translucent blue vinyl formats.
Produced and co-written by Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen Shock is Tesla’s eighth studio album and the band will be actively touring across North America, Europe, and elsewhere around the globe throughout 2019 in support.
One of the world’s most celebrated and enduring rock bands with a diehard, loyal fanbase, Tesla have enjoyed international chart, radio, and tour success for nearly 35 years, with a string of platinum-selling albums such as Mechanical Resonance, The Great Radio Controversy and Psychotic Supper under their belt and global album sales topping 15 million.
That they are still roaring and soaring should be no surprise. That’s just how they are built. Tesla may have been born in Sacramento, California, in the mid ‘80s eruption of leather, spandex and big hair, but this band has never been about those things. Led by vocalist Jeff Keith, their bluesy, soulful sound is strongly embedded in the roots of organic, authentic 1970s rock and roll. The same roots that produced bands like the Allman Brothers, Grand Funk Railroad, AC/DC, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Aerosmith.
Tesla’s legacy is alive and well as they continue to record and sellout venues all over the world. As worn in and comfortable as your favorite pair of jeans, as tough and dependable as your coolest leather jacket, Tesla are always ready to rock.
