MARTY FRIEDMAN Featured In New FANTA Commercial

Former MEGADETH guitarist Marty Friedman has joined the cast for the second season of the smash NHK-FM radio drama "Seishun Adventure GO! GO! Chikinzu". The show will broadcast every weeknight from August 2 through August 13 at 10:45 p.m.

The fourth Fanta commercial featuring Friedman in the campaign is currently on the air in Japan. The latest TV commercial features Friedman and the rest of the FANTA band jamming inside the bullet train for some very unsuspecting passengers.

The "rock band FANTA" features other Japanese household names, Takamizawa (The Alfee), Nana Tanimura, Ayanocozey (DJ OZMA) and sumo superstar Akebono.

After completing the majority of the recording Los Angeles' most legendary recording studio, The Village Recorder, Marty Friedman is back in Tokyo, Japan putting the finishing touches on his latest instrumental solo album.

Friedman's ninth album, "Tokyo Jukebox", was released in Europe on February 22, 2010 via Mascot Records. The CD features extensive liner notes (written by Friedman in the "story behind the song" format) which are exclusive to the European release.
