JASON BIELER Posts Guitar Playthrough Video For "Apology" Featuring ANDEE BLACKSUGAR

Guitarist / vocalist Jason Bieler (Saigon Kick) is preparing to release his new solo album, Songs For The Apocalypse, under the moniker Jason Bieler And The Baron Von Bielski Orchestra, on January 22 on CD/LP/Digital.

The album sees Bieler working with a diverse array of musical friends including Todd LaTorre (Queensrÿche), Dave Ellefson (Megadeth), Devin Townsend, Pat Badger (Extreme), Butch Walker (ex-Marvelous 3), Bumblefoot (Sons of Apollo), Clint Lowery (Sevendust), Benji Webbe (Skindred), Kyle Sanders (Hellyeah) and more. A full list of musical cohorts can be found below.

The first single and video, "Apology" features Todd LaTorre (Queensrÿche) on drums, Kevin Scott on bass, and a guest guitar solo from Andee Blacksugar (KMFDM), with Bieler handling lead vocals and all other instruments. 

Bieler has checked in with the following update: 

"Here we see the wild Andee Blacksugar in his natural environment creating maximum melodic chaos on the tune 'Apology'. He is brilliant and quite frankly I am getting tired of explaining to people that I didn’t play the solos :-). Enjoy and all hail Andee and by hail, I mean follow and support him! He is a national treasure!"

Bieler is a singer, guitarist, songwriter and producer who is also known for playing with hard rock band Saigon Kick, which achieved a platinum single in the US with the timeless hit "Love Is On The Way" from its gold-selling album The Lizard, which Jason also produced. Bieler also played in an early touring version of Talisman with Marcel Jacob and Jeff Scott Soto, as well as Super Transatlantic, with Extreme bassist Pat Badger, earning them a gold record for their work on the soundtrack for the American Pie movie. Recently, Bieler had been touring extensively as a solo artist. The shows featured a wide array of musical styles, absurdists humor, special guests, and more. He also runs, along with his brother, a successful record label, Bieler Bros., which has worked with Skindred, Will Haven, Nonpoint, Karnivool, Sikth, and many more.
