MARTY FRIEDMAN wasted no time unleashing his two latest anthems, "Self Pollution" and "Whiteworm", in preparation of the release of his new album, Wall Of Sound, to be released on August 4, 2017 via Prosthetic Records. Today, Marty follows up with another soaring new track, "Miracle", posted alongside an interview with Billboard Magazine.
Marty tells Billboard that "Miracle" is a heartfelt song, and that, "it's supposed to make you feel really good after a big accomplishment, like you ran a marathon, a promotion or you fell in love with somebody."

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). Pre-orders can be found here: http://smarturl.it/MartyFriedman
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.
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
MARTY FRIEDMAN will begin a headlining run on August 2 in Philadelphia, PA. Support comes from Houston's top progressive outfit, Scale the Summit, along with Madison, WI's incendiary power trio, The Fine Constant. See below for all upcoming tour dates:
