Marty Friedman Teams With Jinxx From BVB On ‘Sorrow And Madness’

Marty Friedman teamed up with Jinxx from Black Veil Brides to record the soaring track “Sorrow and Madness,” available on Marty’s brand new album, Wall Of Sound (Jinxx recorded violin on the track). The album will be released on August 4, 2017 via Prosthetic Records.

Friedman tells AP: “This song is a good barometer for the record. I’m hugely into big contrasts, and there’s nothing subtle in what we’ve done with “Sorrow And Madness.” It expands both of us – it’s something that people won’t expect, and it made us both grow so much. I’m so proud of what we’ve done on this song.”

Jinxx adds: “Let’s just say that Marty took a little violin melody I wrote and moved it to another level… to outer space! One day I sent him my idea, and three days later he replied with his take on it, and it blew my mind! If you’ve ever seen the movie Amadeus, it was like when Mozart sits down at the piano and plays Salieri’s little ditty! It was amazing to listen to!”

Marty Friedman will begin a headlining run in support of Wall Of Sound on August 2 in Philadelphia, PA. Support comes from Houston’s top progressive outfit, Scale the Summit, along with Madison, WI’s incendiary power trio, The Fine Constant.
