During the Summer of 2021 Taz took to the studio in San Diego with long time band mates Val Trainor and Barney Firks to record a new album.One notable guest is Graham Bonnet, there had been little communication between the two men since 2008 but once they were back in touch a new song “The Accidental Tourist” was in the can! David Reece contributes vocals to three songs on the album.

Chandler Mogel (previously heard on TTB album Pressure And Time) makes an appearance on the song “Blue” and Taz reached out to long time acquaintances Doogie White and Mark Boals who are also featured prominently on the album, Mark turning in phenomenal performances on 3 songs and Doogie showing a slightly different side to his huge vocal talent on the song “Raw Nerve.”

“Nocturnal” is a throwback in time. An album of classic hard rock, performed by “lifer” musicians who are in it because they have nothing they would rather be doing! On this album, guitarist Taz Taylor, Bassist B.L. Firks and Drummer Val Trainor team up with some of hard rock’s greatest vocalists. Together they have managed to combine the swagger and attitude of 80’s Sunset Strip with the musical virtuosity of the shred guitar boom which also peaked in that decade… whilst simultaneously raising a huge musical middle finger to the 90’s decade that followed.

“Nocturnal” brings back everything you love about the classic 80s era of melodic heavy rock!
