Welcome to the Nothing Shocking Podcast. On this weeks episode Bob talks about his experience with the Chicago Open Air Festival featuring Korn, Kiss, Rob Zombie, Godsmack, Steel Panther etc etc. It was a fantastic festival and I highly recommend everybody check it out next year.

Here's the press release for the first video "Reload"

Coming on the heels of the recently released EPK and album announcement, Projected returns with the video for the debut single “Reload.” The video was produced, directed and edited by Jamie Brown for Smoking Gun Productions and can be seen here: https://youtu.be/Y3dtoi4VZdw. The song comes from the band’s sophomore double-length release, Ignite My Insanity, scheduled for release on July 21st via Rat Pak Records. Thetwo-disc collection is now available for pre-order in various configurations at http://www.ratpakrecords.com/Projected as well as digitally via iTunes at: http://smarturl.it/IMIiTunes. Fans who pre-order the album via iTunes will receive an instant download of “Reload” with two subsequent downloads scheduled prior to the full-album release.
Ignite My Insanity is the long awaited follow-up to the 2012 self-released debut album, Human from the band comprised of Sevendust guitarist John Connolly, Alter Bridge/Creed drummer Scott Phillips, Sevendust bassist Vinnie Hornsby and Tremonti guitarist Eric “E-ROCK” Friedman.

Ignite My Insanity features 21 all new tracks from Projected and continues to build upon the sound the band established with their debut. It is an album designed to resonate with fans from the member’s original projects and guaranteed to garner new fans along the way. From the melodic piano interlude of the opener “Strike” to the raucous ending of closer “Battlestations,” the new album takes the listener on a journey inside the minds of the band. Songs like “Six Feet Below,” “Gomorrah,” “Inhuman” and “Upside Down” are infectious rockers. The first single “Reload” is a frenetic composition that showcases the musicianship of these accomplished performers. Alter Bridge/Tremonti songwriter Mark Tremonti co-wrote “Rectify” and “Call Me The Devil” and Sevendust’s Morgan Rose co-wrote “Concede” with the band.

Projected formed in 2012 when longtime friends John Connolly (Sevendust), Vinnie Horsnby (Sevendust), Scott Phillips (Alter Bridge/Creed) and Eric “E-Rock” Friedman (Tremonti) decided to create some music together. While all members are successful in their mainstay bands, Projected afforded the members a chance to explore some different ideas musically. In September 2012, the band self-released their debut album Human and is currently looking for breaks in their respective schedules to bring the music to their fans in a live setting.

Freddie Nelson

Welcome to the Nothing Shocking Podcast. Our guest this week is Freddie Nelson.
You can listen here:

Guitarist, singer, songwriter, and producer FREDDIE NELSON first came to international attention in 2010 when he collaborated with guitar virtuoso Paul Gilbert (Mr. Big) on their album, UNITED STATES. Together they wrote, performed, and produced the recording that was released on Mascot Records and toured Japan and Europe shortly after.

Flash forward to 2017 and it’s now time for Pittsburgh’s FREDDIE NELSON to SHAKE THE CAGE with his self-produced debut solo album.

We live in an age where reality shows create superstars and the technology that once revolutionized music has become the crutch of the creative process. In an oversaturated industry where anyone can be discovered, we have lost sight of the unseen magic that embodies iconic musicians. The music of FREDDIE NELSON is here to remind us of that magic.


“The record is called SHAKE THE CAGE, because I feel that a lot of music has become one dimensional with tools such as pitch correction and formulated songwriting. There is no substitute for hard work and honing your craft, and it’s time to challenge mediocrity,” NELSON says.

With unprecedented attention to detail, SHAKE THE CAGE is truly a solo effort. All of the writing and producing was done by Nelson as well as all of the musical and vocal performances, with the exception of drums performed by the legendary Thomas Lang (who has played with Peter Gabriel, Kelly Clarkson, John Wetton and countless others). It was mixed by Rob Hill of X Music Studios in Los Angeles, CA and was mastered by Maz Murad at Metropolis in London, England.

SHAKE THE CAGE is a collection of eleven hook driven rock songs displaying NELSON’s impressive four octave vocal range and notoriously ferocious guitar playing. Intertwining elements of punk, pop, and blues, he has the uncanny ability to weave memorable melodies alongside intelligent lyrics to create a body of work that appeals to the masses. “I let my instincts guide me,” NELSON explains, “and this album is the result of living in the moment.”
