It has been seven years since the last Ted Nugent studio album, and the legendary guitarist is back with 'SHUTUP&JAM!,' set for a July 8 release. To support the album, Uncle Ted will be embarking on a headlining tour beginning a few days before the record release (dates below).

Never at a loss for words, the Motor City Madman describes the new album, which includes a guest appearance from Sammy Hagar, as follows: "'SHUTUP&JAM!' 2014…the unstoppable firestorm of Ted Nugent, all American Motor City, high energy R&B&R&R soul music erupts once again with what many gung ho music lovers are raving to be the best songs and best music and highest energy rockout of my insanely wonderful musical American Dream."

Nugent continues, “Sammy Hagar sings his balls off on ‘She’s Gone’ and Derek St. Holmes proves once again that the Motor City produces not just the greatest guitar grind masterlicks ever but one of the most powerful soul voices of all time on ‘Everything Matters!’ Unleashing early July 2014. Read em & weep! 'SHUTUP&JAM!' you know who I am, you know where I stand, so 'SHUTUP&JAM!' I am!”

Regarding his appearance on the track 'She's Gone,' Hagar says: “When I first heard Ted's demo of this song, I immediately responded with ‘I'm in. Ted's ripping the guitar like the days of old…very inspiring to sing to a track like that—old-school blues riff, hard edged rock 'n roll on fire!!!”

The album is available for pre-order at Amazon.
