Tesla will release their new studio album, Shock, worldwide on March 8th via UMe. The album will be available on CD, black vinyl and limited edition translucent blue vinyl formats as well as digital. Its electrifying lead single, “Shock,” is available now for streaming and for immediate download with album pre-orders. Produced and co-written by Phil Collen (Def Leppard), Shock is Tesla’s eighth studio album. Tesla is actively touring across North America, Europe, and elsewhere around the globe throughout 2019.
Album merchandise bundles that feature the CD, black and limited edition LP are available exclusively via the band’s website. T-shirt, mobile charger, keychain and hoodie options are available.
One of the world’s most celebrated and enduring rock bands with a diehard, loyal fanbase, Tesla has enjoyed international chart, radio, and tour success for nearly 35 years, with 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 the mid ‘80s eruption of leather, spandex and big hair, but this band has never been about those things. 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 endures because they are a celebration of the greatest spirits of rock and roll.
