Marty Friedman Announces U.S. Headlining Tour in Support of New Album

June 14, 2017

Following last week’s album announcement, Jackson signature artist Marty Friedman is now set to unveil his headlining tour in support of his latest scorcher, Wall Of Sound. The 22-show trek will feature support from Houston’s top progressive outfit, Scale the Summit, along with Madison, Wisc.-based technical progressive three-piece, The Fine Constant. The tour kicks off in Philadelphia on August 2, just two days before Wall Of Sound is released.

“We’re coming to you direct from Tokyo, to make you smile or make you cry, or even drag you up on stage with us,” said Friedman. “What’s for sure is that we will definitely get your blood pumping.”

Friedman will be backed by his ace band featuring drummers  CHARGEEEEEE and Anup Sastry (first week of the US tour only), bassist Kiyoshi Manii and guitarist Jordan Ziff.

“Kiyoshi is the most aggressive bassist on the planet. You will either fall in love with her, admire her skills or both,” said Friedman. “Jordan Ziff is an up-and-coming guitar superstar. The youngest of the select few who have played beside me in the band. Anup Sastry played drums on Inferno as well as Wall Of Sound, and is the most innovative young drummer I’ve ever seen. Chargeeee (on the remainder of the USA tour) has been my touring drummer for 8 years – he steals the show from me every night. He has an inhuman amount of energy.”
