Iconic King’s X guitarist, Ty Tabor (also of The Jelly Jam and Platypus, etc.), will release a new solo effort, ‘Alien Beans’, on January 12th via Rat Pak Records.
The release is a double-disc album that features ten all-new studio tracks and a “best of” compilation disc. The “best of” disc is comprised of 11 remixed and remastered tracks personally selected by Tabor from his previous releases.
“I wanted to do a rock album and put some new, heavier stuff together. Along the way we also decided to remix some of the older stuff and make it a double album. Everything just fits together like it should,” explains Tabor.
The album is available for pre-order now in various configurations. Fans can order the new release on physical CD, vinyl formats, and cassette as well as autographed copies, t-shirts, and an ultimate fan bundle that will include a phone call from Ty Tabor himself.
All fans that pre-order ‘Alien Beans’ will automatically be entered into a grab-bag raffle, where they can win a custom Ty Tabor guitar, handwritten lyrics, an exclusive Select-A-Head wall display, and Ty Tabor’s personal Orange amplifier among other prizes.
Along with this news comes a new official video from ‘Aliens Beans’, one for the song “Freight Train” and it is streaming below. Joining Ty on the song and video both are ex-Galactic Cowboys guitarist Wally Farkas.
