XM's Boneyard host Eddie Trunk, who has a long-running radio show, "Friday Night Rocks", on New York's Q104.3 FM, conducted an interview with California hard rockers TESLA at this year's Rocklahoma festival, which was held July 9-13, 2008 in Pryor, Oklahoma. Watch the seven-minute clip below.
TESLA's third DVD, "Comin' Atcha Live! 2008", was released on July 15 on the band's Tesla Electric Company Recordings label (in partnership with Ryko Distribution). It's TESLA's first DVD in 17 years (since 1991's "Five Man Video Band") and is filled with over two hours of live music, over an hour of special behind-the-scenes footage and never-before-seen material, including footage of TESLA interacting with fans, giving viewers a personal tour of Seattle, and an up-close look at their touring equipment and guitars.
"Comin' Atcha Live! 2008" also marks the world premiere of "Dear Pvt. Ledbetter", a new song written in honor of the troops from the band's forthcoming album, which is currently being recorded at bassist Brian Wheat's studio, J Street Recorders with producer Terry Thomas (who was behind the boards on the band's 1994 "Bust A Nut" album) and will be released this September. More details to be announced in the coming weeks.
The DVD was filmed at the Myth nightclub in Maplewood, Minnesota on February 22. At the sold-out show, TESLA treated fans to numerous classics such as "What You Give", "Signs", "Modern Day Cowboy", "Love Song" and "Little Suzi".
