Famed virtuoso guitarist Marty Friedman has a new live recording on the way, and in anticipation of its release, a clip has been released from the recording.
Friedman’s new live recording One Mad M.F. Live!! is scheduled to be released October 19 via Prosthetic Records. Originally recorded April 14, 2018 on the last date of Friedman’s “Wall Of Sound Tour,” the recording will be available on CD, digital and special deluxe 2LP gatefold set with glow-in-the-dark wax as one pressing. Other vinyl pressings will be in black sparkle and clear splatter.
In anticipation of the recording’s release, a from the performance of Friedman performing his song ‘Whiteworm’ has been released at GuitarWorld.com. The song is streaming online at Friedman’s official bandcamp site. Pre-orders for the recording are open now at Friedman’s official store.
Friedman shared his thoughts on his new recording in a recent interview, noting that it gives audiences a lot to anticipate.
“This live album is a tip of the hat to the live albums that blew my mind when I was a kid,” Friedman said. “The musical content itself is modern and atomic-powered, but the presentation is decidedly old-school. The pacing of the show, the audience participation stuff, the special live arrangements of the songs, these are the things that got me all jacked up as a kid. I like to give the audience the feeling that they are really getting something unique, something that only happens at THEIR show, not just a recital of the songs exactly as they know them. There are lots of happy accidents, once in a lifetime ad libs, things that could have only happened because we were high on that particular audience’s energy.”
Friedman added he felt that the performance presented in this recording achieved the goal for which he aimed in the first place.
“I like to lose myself in giving energy to the audience,” Friedman said. “I want everyone to go home feeling like they were injected with a shot of positive vibes. I think we captured that on the record.”
In celebration of his new live recording’s release, Friedman will hold a special performance October 21 at the famed Viper Room in Los Angeles, California. It will be his only live U.S. performance of the year. Tickets for the show are available here.

One Bad M.F. Live!! follows the release of Wall of Sound (2017). The album debuted at #12 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart. Friedman said the album is one of the best that he has ever created.
“I’ve had albums that have charted higher, sold more and got more attention over my career, but Wall of Sound is the album I’ve been striving to make ever since I picked up a guitar,” Friedman said. “I have an almost unhealthy amount of pride toward that album. The thrill I get from playing the Wall of Sound stuff live is something that I wanted documented, and that’s what One Bad M.F. Live!! is.”
