TESLA “Full Throttle Live” – released on May 26, 2023 – captures this essence from a stop at the Sturgis Bike Rally in the year 2022 at the infamous saloon that hosts many motorcycle rock and roll parties, and this inspired the band to put on even more of a heavy show.
Independently recorded, mixed, and produced by bassist Brian Wheat and guitarist Frank Hannon, this new live album truly captures TESLA in pure honest form and even dives deeper into their roots by recording a live version of the 1974 Aerosmith classic ‘SOS Too Bad’ as a bonus track. The heavier song choices range from ‘Miles Away’ to more recent hard releases like ‘Time To Rock’ and ‘Cold Blue Steel’. But don’t worry there are old TESLA classics captured too like ‘Changes’ and ‘Lazy Days, Crazy Nights’ all recorded as TESLA is best…100% Full Throttle Live!
‘Miles Away‘ is the lead-off single release from TESLA’s new live album “Full Throttle Live!” The guys chose to put this song out first because it represents TESLA and the new live album’s harder heavier sound. ‘Miles Away’ is a fan favorite in concert with its heavy 6/8 rolling groove and blistering guitar solo. This is also an ironic song choice because the song lyrics are written about being a “rock star” on the road away from reality and missing home.
