October 9, 2018, 9 days ago
Multi-platinum guitar legend Ted Nugent reveals full details for his new full-length album The Music Made Me Do It, out Friday, November 9th via Round Hill Records. The effort is Nugent’s first studio album in four years; please see below for the full tracklisting.
The album features Greg Smith (Billy Joel, Alice Cooper, Ritchie Balckmore’s Rainbow) on bass, Jason Hartless (Joe Lynn Turner, Mitch Ryder) on drums, and the Motor City Madman himself on lead guitar and vocals. Accompanying the CD is a bonus DVD, Live At Freedom Hill, an electrifying full-length concert captured at Freedom Hill Amphitheatre in Sterling Heights, Michigan.
Of the new album, Nugent commented, “The Music Made Me Do It! That's not only the title track my new record, it's my battlecry for more than 60 years to pursue this incredible soundtrack to my happiness, craving for creative adventure, the ultimate guitar tone and overall quality of life!”
In advance of the album’s release, Nugent released the live music video for title track, “The Music Made Me Do It” (watch below). The video was shot at The Canyon Club in Agoura Hills, California during Nugent’s summer tour and showcases the raw energy of his legendary live performances, offering a taste of the new studio material he recorded over the last year for the upcoming album, The Music Made Me Do It.
Ted Nugent has carved a permanent place in rock n’ roll history as the ultimate guitar-shredding showman, selling more than 40 million albums and performing in excess of 6,700 (and counting!) high-octane live shows. As a budding musician, Nugent was strongly influenced by Chuck Berry and Bo Diddly, and knew he wanted to pursue that type of sound and attitude. Early bands, The Royal Highboys, and The Lourds, paved the way for the Amboy Dukes - and their psychedelic Journey To The Center Of The Mind kicked young Ted’s career into hyper drive. The axe maniac soon broke out as a solo artist, where the guitarist’s prodigious talent, ear shattering volume and over-the-top stage antics quickly earned him the moniker of Motor City Madman.
Cranking out hits like "Cat Scratch Fever", "Just What The Doctor Ordered", "Free For All" and the iconic "Stranglehold", Ted Nugent garnered international acclaim and truly hit his stride, becoming one of the top-grossing tour acts in America. His no-holds-barred career now spans six decades of multi-platinum hits. The ultimate Road Warrior, touring and recording continue at Ted’s breakneck pace. Nugent and his inimitable sound have been featured on VH1’s Behind the Music, A & E’s Biography and more. He was recently named Detroit’s Greatest Guitar Player of All Time by readers of MLive.
