Marty Friedman announces tour with Scale The Summit and The Fine Constant

Guitar great Marty Friedman has announced a North American headlining tour in support of his forthcoming record Wall Of Sound (Prosthetic). Providing support on the trek will be Scale The Summit and The Fine Constant. Friedman comments:

“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.”

His backing band will feature drummers Anup Sastry and Chargeeee, bassist Kiyoshi, and guitarist Jordan Ziff. Regarding his bandmates, 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.”
