Pioneer of exotic guitar MARTY FRIEDMAN will release his scorching full-length opus, Wall Of Sound, this Friday via Prosthetic Records. Today, Marty begins his U.S. headline tour with support from Houston's top progressive outfit, SCALE THE SUMMIT, along with Madison, WI's incendiary power trio, THE FINE CONSTANT. VIP packs are available via http://terrificticketing.spacecrafted.com/marty-friedman, and see below for a full listing of tour dates.

In conjunction with the tour kick off and impending album release, MARTY FRIEDMAN is pleased to reveal his new music video for the single "Whiteworm", which through cinematic segments depict the aggressive yet uplifting flow of the track. Watch it now on KNAC.COM HERE.

Marty says: "The "Whiteworm" video has a definite "real world" Japanese look, but not the over the top "exported Japanese look" that many people are familiar with when they see Japan related content. It was directed by top class Japanese music video director Junya Masuyama, who has done hit videos with superstars of every genre of Japanese music.

I chose him to challenge him to put a foreigner (myself) into a very Japanese atmosphere in such a way that was not "Japan overload". It was quite easy for him to do so, as his videos tend to be minimalistic, with the focus on one or two subtle themes. In this case the themes being the very delicate and simple idea of a little boy playing a video game waiting for the rain to stop, and me playing aggressively and calmly. Japan can be known for its wildness, but it also corners the market on subtle things. I went the subtle route on this video to contrast with the wildness of the guitar work in "Whiteworm".

Wall Of Sound expands and destroys any conventional notions of instrumental music. The album was produced by Friedman, engineered by Paul Fig (GHOST, RUSH, ALICE IN CHAINS) and mixed by Jens Bogren (LAMB OF GOD, OPETH). Wall Of Sound will be available on all digital platforms, compact disc and comes in five limited edition LP color variants:

  • White Black Swirl LP - 300 Worldwide
  • Clear Black Smoke LP - 100 Worldwide
  • Glow in The Dark LP - 100 Worldwide
  • Clear Black Swirl LP - European retail exclusive, 100 Europe only
  • White LP - US indie retail exclusive, 200 US only
Pre-orders can be found HERE.

Once again, MARTY FRIEDMAN assembled an incredible and diverse group of musicians to record and guest on Wall Of Sound. His core recording band is made up of Anup Sastry, a modern whiz kid sharing drum duties with uber-veteran Gregg Bissonette, and Japanese musician Kiyoshi - who is undisputedly one of the most aggressive bassists on earth. Guests include Jinxx of BLACK VEIL BRIDES and Shiv Mehra of DEAFHEAVEN, and Jorgen Munkeby of SHINING lends his voice to the only non-instrumental track on the album.

  • "Self Pollution"
  • "Sorrow And Madness" (featuring Jinxx of BLACK VEIL BRIDES)
  • "Streetlight"
  • "Whiteworm"
  • "For A Friend"
