In support of his impending new album Wall of Sound, Marty Friedman (ex-Megadeth) will set out on a U.S. headlining tour this summer, featuring support from Scale the Summit and The Fine Constant.
The 22-market foray jump-starts in Philly at the beginning of August and hits New York City at Highline Ballroom on Aug. 4 [TIX], before making its way to the west for shows in Arizona, California and more. Catch full tour dates below.
We’re coming to you direct from Tokyo, to make you smile or make you cry, or even drag you up on stage with us. What’s for sure is that we will definitely get your blood pumping.
Speaking about his band, Friedman adds:
Kiyoshi is the most aggressive bassist on the planet. You will either fall in love with her, admire her skills or both. Jordan Ziff is an up-and-coming guitar superstar. The youngest of the select few who have played beside me in the band. Anup Sastry (on the first week of the USA tour) played drums on Inferno as well as Wall Of Sound, and is the most innovative young drummer I`ve ever seen. Chargeeee (on the remainder of the USA tour) has been my touring drummer for 8 years – he steals the show from me every night. He has an inhuman amount of energy.
Wall of Sound officially drops on August 4 on Prosthetic Records. Check out the tour announcement clip and a few tunes (including the Friedman‘s new single “Self Pollution”) after the dates.

WALL OF SOUND 2017 USA TOUR ANNOUNCED!
Beyond excited to play the USA again-many new cities for us, some we did on the INFERNO tour that left a big impression on us. Last time you all freaked out over bassist Kiyoshi, guitarist Jordan and animal drummer Chargeee. They are all back this time, PLUS drum superhuman Anup Sastry (who recorded INFERNO & WALL OF SOUND) will appear at several shows!
