From Bravewords.com:

 

Frontiers Records has announced the European release of TESLA's brand new studio album, entitled Simplicity, on June 6th.

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 six-year 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!”

Yeah why isnt that song on the album?

 

Looking forward to it though.

That's what I was thinking. Don't want to buy the mp3 if it will end up on the album. Not listed yet though?

There's an early review here. You'll need to register but there's a ton of interesting stuff on there so worth doing.

Tesla have always been one of my absolute favorite bands. Always exciting when they put new stuff out and maybe I finally get to see them live.

I missed out on seeing them live a few years back, here in Australia..totally bumed about that. Great band...one that everyone seems to like.

Not really loving 'Taste my pain,' but of course, like any proper human, I love the band and cannot wait to hear a new disc. Been way too long, but you know it'll be worth the wait and a quality release.

Great live band. They have never disappointed. Always get such a positive vibe from them.

Wow great song. A little 'Into The Now' flavor in the beginning and then cranked up with their classic signature!

I loved Mechanical Resonance back in the day...Was always one of my go to albums....And loved GRC and Psychotic Supper as well...although, not quite as much as their first release.

 

However, Bust A Nut never really got my attention....And neither did Into the Now....Then they sorta disbanded for a few years and I've never really found my way back to them. I remember checking out a few tunes on Forever More but never really heard anything that convinced me to buy it...

 

So Divine doesn't sound too bad to me...Has a more classic Tesla sound that I used to like....Maybe I can get back into them with this album.

 

This is one album I'll be interested in seeing some reviews and seeing how people think it compares to their earlier stuff.

Tesla is always good, but this and the song they played at M3 actually have me excited for their new release.
