Tesla's new LP, Simplicity, is available now. It's the band's seventh studio full length LP and fifteenth release overall. Guitarist and long-time Epi player Dave Rude (pictured below with his Masterbilt EF-500RCCE), tells us that the band locked themselves away for weeks writing the new material that would become Simplicity with long time A&R man Tom Zutaut. Fourteen solid tracks later, the band sank their teeth in while recording began at bassist Brian Wheat's very own J Street Recorders. Legendary engineer Michael Wagener (Metallica, Skid Row, Motley Crue), was then tapped to put the final touches in place.
