TESLA: 2017 Recap Video

California rockers TESLA have uploaded a 2017 recap video. The six-and-a-half-minute clip, which was shot by Oliver Halfin and edited by Rob Neilson, can be seen below.

TESLA is continuing to work on a new studio album, tentatively due in 2018. The disc is being produced by DEF LEPPARD guitarist Phil Collen, who encouraged the Sacramento-based band to adopt a slightly different recording approach.

"With Phil, we'd come in on a given day, work on maybe the bridge on a particular song, work on the chorus on this song, and then work on a verse — all in one day, all on different songs," TESLA singer Jeff Keith explained to The Salt Lake Tribune earlier in the year. "That was really fun and exciting, 'cause you could put the ideas down, take 'em home, chew on 'em for a couple days… It was really fun doing it in that way, and it's the first time we've ever really done it like that."

TESLA's most recent release, "Mechanical Resonance, Live!", was made available last year via Tesla Electric Company Recordings/Mailboat. The effort celebrated the 30th birthday of the original multi-platinum album and featured classic hits as well as a new single, "Save That Goodness", written by Collen.
