The legendary American rock band TESLA released their new studio album, SHOCK, worldwide on March 8 2019 via UMe. The album is available on CD, digital, black vinyl, and limited edition translucent blue vinyl formats. Produced and co-written by Phil Collen (Def Leppard), SHOCKis TESLA’s eighth studio album. TESLA is actively touring across North America, Europe, and elsewhere around the globe throughout 2019, including a performance at the UK iconic Download Festival.
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.
TESLA play worldwide throughout 2019. The band have a series of European dates in June 2019. The band have just added a UK headline date to their existing June 2019 tour. Details below
