In a burst of creative energy, Tesla guitarist Frank Hannon started writing his own batch of songs shortly after Tesla released its latest album, Simplicity, in June. While on the road touring during the summer or 2014, Frank spent all the lonely hours in his hotel rooms recording musical ideas on a little Boss hard disc recording machine, and the ideas started flowing so much that he would literally be recording music in the dressing rooms five minutes prior to TESLA stepping onstage! After returning home, Frank knew he had a batch of strong material, so current Frank Hannon Band members Aaron Leigh (bass) and Kelly Smith (drums) joined him in the studio to help put the album into fruition.
After the majority of songs were recorded, an old original concept came back to Frank Hannon’s mind from the year 2000 when the guitarist wrote an instrumental native American chant song he titled World Peace? which asks the question: “When will it come?” This was long before the Guitarz From Marz album. With that concept in mind, the flames grew hotter and the final group of songs were written and recorded.
Featured songs will include powerful heavy protests such as The Picture, Electric Chair, Born Free and the happier positive melodies of Lucky 13, Down The Road and Break The Silence. Both the title track and the album World Peace not only showcase Hannon as a powerful lead singer and shredding lead guitarist, but also a prolific songwriter. The recognizable sound of Tesla is evident here, but the sound of an unleashed artist is also heard
World Peace is available for pre-order here.
