Members of TESLA will check in with KNAC.COM's Junkman on Monday, June 4 at 4:00 p.m. (Pacific Daylight Time).
You can listen to the program live at www.knac.com.
TESLA will launch a summer U.S. headlining tour June 7 in Santa Rosa, CA at the Wells Fargo Center for the Arts in support of their "Real to Reel" album, which is due out June 5 on the band's Tesla Electric Company Recordings (Ryko Distribution). This marks the 20th consecutive year that TESLA has toured the States.
The first 13 tracks on "Real to Reel" — "Reel 1" — will be available on June 5 at retail outlets, while the second disc — "Reel 2" — containing the remaining 12 songs will be available along the band's tour route with the purchase of a concert ticket. An empty space will exist within "Reel 1"'s packaging for "Reel 2".
Fans wanting bonus material should head to their local Best Buy, where a limited edition package will be sold including "War Pigs" from "Reel 2" as well as a sneak preview of three of the band's first-ever unplugged studio recordings of "Modern Day Cowboy", "Paradise" and "Shine Away" — the last recordings with guitarist Tommy Skeoch in 2005 — which will appear on TESLA's forthcoming 20th anniversary boxed set. Details about the boxed set will be announced soon.
TESLA will be the featured guest on the nationally syndicated radio show "Rockline" on Wednesday, June 6 at 8:30 p.m. PT/11:30 p.m. ET. They'll chat with host Bob Coburn about "Real to Reel", the U.S. tour and everything else happening in their world. The band will also be performing a few songs (some from the new album and some TESLA classics), and fans will have the opportunity to call in with questions for the duo at 800-344-ROCK (7625).
