The legendary American rock band TESLA release their new live album, Five Man London Jam worldwide TODAY, March 27, 2020 on UMe. Produced by TESLA, Five Man London Jam, the album is a live performance of some their most iconic songs from their catalog. Five Man London Jam was recorded and filmed in 4K high-definition as an homage to their critically acclaimed and highly influential Top 20 platinum album Five Man Acoustical Jam.
The band is hosting a listening party at 10:00am PST/1:00pm EST and bassist Brian Wheat will be joining to chat with fans in real time.
The recording of this live album took place when TESLA visited the famed iconic recording studio Abbey Road Studios for a one-night musical event capturing the band performing songs from their legendary arsenal including “Love Song” and “What You Give” along with their classic covers of “Signs” and “We Can Work It Out.” Additionally, the band performed live for the first-time-ever their new song “California Summer Song” from their latest album Shockincluding “Tied To The Tracks” and “Forever Loving You.”
Lead vocalist and frontman Jeff Keith exclaims “Five Man London Jam is the greatest thing ever! ‘We came in through the bathroom window!’”
Bassist Brian Wheat gave insight into the band’s inspiration for the album saying, “I got into music because of Paul McCartney and the Beatles to record where they made all their records was one of the highest highs of my career.”
Guitarist Dave Rude shared his thoughts on recording the album stating, “Recording at Abbey Road was a dream come true and I can’t wait for people to hear and see it.”
One of the world’s most celebrated and enduring rock bands with a diehard, loyal fanbase, TESLA has enjoyed international chart, radio, and tour success for nearly 35 years, with multi-platinum albums and global album sales topping 15 million.
That they are still roaring and soaring should be no surprise. That’s just how they are built. TESLA may have been born in the mid ‘80s eruption of excess, but this band has never been about those things. Their bluesy, soulful sound is strongly embedded in the roots of organic, authentic 1970s rock and roll. The same roots that produced bands like the Allman Brothers, Grand Funk Railroad, AC/DC, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Aerosmith. As worn in and comfortable as your favorite pair of jeans, TESLA endures because they are a celebration of the greatest spirits of rock and roll.
