Tony Fredianelli on Tour with Third Eye Blind Preps Solo Project

Third Eye Blind is on tour in support of its EP Red Star, released December, 2008, online only. The EP includes the track "Non Dairy Creamer," currently airing on 17 Alt-Indie radio stations. "This song is off the EP and we did not push or press and it blew up on its own. That to me is amazing,” explains 3EB guitarist Tony Fredianelli. “We must be doing something right, we have really solid music. The new album coming is some of our best work.” Fredianelli's referring to an album tentatively titled Ursa Major that's set for release later this year.

Fredianelli is a Mike Varney discovery. Varney signed the guitarist to his Shrapnel Records label when Fredianelli was 16 after hearing a demo tape. Fredianelli was a member of the speed metal, neo-classical band Apocrypha with whom he recorded three albums, the first two of which were produced by former Megadeth guitarist Marty Friedman, with Fredianelli producing the third. In 1992, Varney introduced Fredianelli to a then unknown singer, Stephen Jenkins, and he was asked to join the band Third Eye Blind.

Also scheduled for release later this year is a solo project from Fredianelli. “Before I joined 3EB I was a solo artist. I started playing at 14 and really excelled at guitar. I want to go back to my roots and create some of that shredding guitar that started my career,” says Fredianelli.
