Tesla announce North American release date for new album

California rockers Tesla will release their new album, “Simplicity”, on June 10 in North America.

The news follows the previously announced European release date of June 6.

The group’s seventh all-original studio album was produced by the band with some help from producer Tom Zutaut.

The first new song off the new album, "Taste My Pain", was released last summer digitally via iTunes and Amazon.

"I must say that this new Tesla album is really gonna be awesome,” says guitarist Frank Hannon. “We went in more prepared with the songs and ideas way more than [2008’s] '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 and roll song called 'Ricochet' that talks about Uncle Ted... [I] can't wait to play this stuff live!”
