Tesla is an American Hard rock and Metal band, which was formed in 1982. The band is originally from Sacramento, California.

After bassist Brian Wheat and guitarist Frank Hannon spent a few years unsuccessfully trying to get their hard rock career off the ground during the pop orientated under the name “City Kidd”, they decided to go in a different direction, when they a hired Grammy award-winning producer, Duane Hitchings.

Whilst recording their debut album, they changed their name to Tesla, in homage to the legendary scientist. Their first release “Mechanical Resonance” came out in 1986, during this time the original members were joined by Jeff Keith on vocals, Tommy Skeoch on guitar and Troy Luccketta on drums. They were often lumped in with the popular glam rock bands at the time, such as Alice Cooper, which they begrudged.

It wasn’t until the release of their second album, 1989’s “The Great Radio Controversy” that the band cemented their fan base and sound. The band went on a national tour following the release of their sophomore project, before returning in 1991 with their very hard rock effort, “Psychotic Supper”.

After 1994’s “Bust A Nut” and subsequent world tour, Tesla went on hiatus, after Skeoch left due to substance abuse. Various members of the band attempted solo careers and worked on other musical projects and bands.

Six years later, they reformed for an intimate one-off show in Sacramento. The success of the concert led to the permanent return of the band, and in 2004 they released their comeback album “Into The Now” which charted at number 30 in the US. They also performed on national TV for “Jimmy Kimmel Live”

Tesla has toured all over the world, and enjoyed incredible popularity and album sales, having collectively sold over 14 million records around the globe.
