Headlining Tour Supports New Album 

“Wall Of Sound”






$20 ADV/$23 DOS - DOS: 7:00/SH: 8:00

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, WI-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. 


Friedman comments, “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. What`s for sure is that we will definitely get your blood pumping.” 



About the band, in Friedman’s own words: “Kiyoshi is the most aggressive bassist on the planet. You will either fall in love with her, admire her skills or both. 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 (on the first week of the USA tour) 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.”

Houston’s Scale The Summit is one of the most well-known and critically acclaimed instrumental progressive bands out there. Having toured with Dream Theater, Periphery, Cynic and many more, they recently released their sixth album, In A World of Fear. Guitarist Chris Letchford commented, “Can’t wait to hit the road this summer playing our new record with such a guitar legend!” 


Madison, WI-based The Fine Constant is led by guitarist/artist Sarah Longfield. The instrumental progressive band has released two full length albums to date. Longfield comments, “Nothing compares to being on the road and playing music every night. You meet so many

incredible musicians and people. It's like cramming a lifetime of experience into a couple weeks/months!” 



About MARTY FRIEDMAN and Wall Of Sound: 

MARTY FRIEDMAN’s 13th solo effort, Wall Of Sound, will be released on August 4, 2017. The album 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). Legendary Queen producer, Mack, came on board to handle the mixing on two tracks, Streetlight and For a Friend, which Friedman proclaimed, “an honor for me, for sure”. 



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 dozens of platinum and gold awards from throughout the globe and continually pushes the boundaries of music as is heard on Wall Of Sound. Fluent in Japanese, Friedman currently resides in Tokyo where he is a fixture on Japanese television (appearing on not only music programs, but also programs featuring topics like cooking, politics, games and history and as the face of campaigns for Fanta, Coca Cola, Sumitomo Bank, etc.), in addition to appearing in major motion pictures. He is also the author of two music books and two best-selling manga-related books. Friedman has not only held top charting positions with his own music in Japan, but has also collaborated on and produced several Top 10 hits. 


MARTY FRIEDMAN was recently appointed a Japanese Heritage Ambassador to promote the country`s upcoming Olympic games. He is currently filming a documentary, and his biography is set to be published soon. You can see Friedman’s popular advice column in Asahi Weekly, as well as his monthly full page feature in OVERTURE Magazine and running feature in Tokyo Magazine.
