Neo-fusion instrumental super trio NIACIN recently released their sixth studio album Krush, their first new music in over eight years. The album, described as a “high-octane thrill ride” by Revolver, was recorded at Clear Lake Studios in North Hollywood (No Doubt, Black Veil Brides) with engineer Ara Sariksian (Steel Panther) while being mixed and mastered by Dino Herrmann (Scorpions, Guns N’ Roses, Meat Loaf). You can purchase a copy of the album from the Prosthetic webstore HERE or download a digital version from iTunes or Amazon mp3.
The group’s legendary bassist Billy Sheehan (Mr. Big, David Lee Roth, Steve Vai) has announced a series of free Guitar Center Workshops throughout May which will feature a live performance, Q&A, meet-and-greet and autograph signing. Dates are listed below. In addition to being able to pick up a copy of “Krush” at each stop, attendees can enter to win Sheehan’s Hartke bass amplification rig, which includes an LH1000 Bass Amplifier and AK410/AK115 Bass Cabinets, or an autographed pack of Rotosound Swing Bass 66 strings.

The moniker NIACIN — the common name of the vitamin B3 — refers to the integral musical role played by the Hammond B-3 organ in shaping the band’s sound, a combination of jazz and rock roots mixed with inspiration from B-3 legends such as Blind Faith, Keith Emerson, Jon Lord (Deep Purple), and Ken Hensley (Uriah Heep).
