TED NUGENT PREPS NEW ALBUM, SUMMER TOUR:

May 14, 2007

Iconic guitar-slinger and bow-hunter Ted Nugent will head out into the wilds of America this summer for an extensive summer tour after he finishes up work on a promised new album.

Nugent will launch a 50-city outing June 1 in Ft. Worth, TX. The itinerary spans June, takes a brief break in early July, and then finishes with an action-packed August run that spills into September. The full schedule is listed below.

The guitarist recently released a YouTube video documenting work on his forthcoming album, “Love Grenade.” Produced in the guitarist’s home studio in Waco, TX, by Jack Blades (Nugent’s former bandmate in Damn Yankees), the album is scheduled for a July 2 release, and follows his 2002 studio set, “Craveman.”

Nugent grabbed headlines recently when he slammed Rage Against the Machine frontman Zack de la Rocha on an episode of the Fox News program “Hannity & Colmes.” During the Rage’s reunion performance at last month’s Coachella festival, de la Roacha reportedly proclaimed that the “current [presidential] administration … should be hung and tried and shot,” adding that “we need to treat them like the war criminals they are,” according to various news reports.

“We’ve disagreed with a lot of administrations in the past, but none of our rhetoric included threatening lives,” Nugent said during his appearance on the Fox program. “These guys [Rage Against the Machine] are over the top, but they’re the lunatic fringe that even your average democrat and liberal doesn’t agree with. But, unfortunately, nobody is silencing these guys–or not necessarily silencing, but condemning this outrageous violence that they’re recommending.”
