tesla640 Sacramento rock band Tesla have announced an all new LP titled, Simplicity, due out June 10th, 2014 via Tesla Electric Company Recording’s arrangement with Entertainment One Music and Distribution.

Simplicity will be the band’s seventh studio full length LP and fifteenth release overall. The new effort will be the followup to Forever More, which was released in October 2008 and featured the single I Wanna Live.

Tela 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.

The first new song off the new album Taste My Pain, was released last summer digitally via iTunes and Amazon and can be streamed here.

Fresh off the Monsters Of Rock Cruise, the band has quite the itinerary of tour dates throughout the rest of 2014.
