Marty Friedman’s new album, Wall Of Sound, which will be released on August 4th, 2017, expands and destroys any conventional notions of instrumental music. It was produced by Friedman, engineered by Paul Fig (Ghost, Rush, Alice in Chains) and mixed by Jens Bogren (Lamb of God, Opeth).
Once again, Friedman assembled an incredible and diverse group of musicians to record and guests 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 bassist Kiyoshi who is undisputedly the most aggressive female bassist on earth.
Marty Friedman released his first solo album, Dragon’s Kiss, on the influential Shrapnel Records. His tenure with Cacophony and Megadeth have created some of the most memorable music and jaw dropping guitar solos ever heard. He’s received gold and platinum awards from throughout the globe and continually pushes the boundaries of music.
Scale The Summit
At this point in their career, it's almost easier to list the prog acts Scale The Summit haven't toured with than the ones they have. From legends like Dream Theater and Yes, to cult heroes such as Cynic and Devin Townsend, to modern trailblazers such as Periphery and BTBAM, to heavy experimentalists like Intronaut and Mastodon, the band has shared stages with a who's who of the genre's past, present and future.
The Fine Constant
The Fine Constant is an instrumental progressive band from Madison, WI. The band was formed in May of 2012 when Sarah Longfield set out to begin performing her solo material in a live setting. From then on, The Fine Constant thrived as a stand alone project, currently with two full length releases and numerous nationwide tours under their belt.
They are known for a unique and technical sound, presented through a dynamic live performance.
