Shane Gaalaas Releases New Solo Album, ‘Bitter Suites from the Red Room’

Pearl Artist, Shane Gaalaas, has released a brilliant new solo album, titled, Bitter Suites from the Red Room, which is now available for download here.  Featuring the previously released single, “Silverstrand Sedation”, along with eight additional modern-rock and progressive rock tracks, this new solo album stands as Shane’s follow-up solo effort to 2013’s Ascend, but his first all-instrumental album, proving the drums, guitar, bass, synths, and also wholly engineered and produced the album.  In regards to his multi-instrumental efforts, Shane states:

"It’s been a dream of mine to do my own instrumental record and take on the task of playing all the instruments. I had an absolute blast writing, playing lead guitar, bass and messing around with soft synths.”

In support of the new album, Shane Gaalaas also released a few killer performance videos of the Bitter Suites from the Red Room tracks, “Wherever Giorgio Dare Roam”, and “El Nino Overture” filmed during a recent sold-out drum clinic in Japan.  Both videos can be viewed below. 
As seen in the play-along videos, Shane once again turned to Pearl’s Crystal Beat drums, the same series he relied upon for this year’s monumental stadium tour with Japanese rock mega-stars, B’z.  More information on Shane Gaalaas, including full specs on his Crystal Beat drums, can be found here
