Here at WithGuitars Towers we prefer to think of ourselves as a positive force with wide musical views, I mean lots more very knowledgeable organs make very strong cases for Free Energy, and WG is more than happy to feature the band, just that at the moment we cannot join the positive chorus, just at present we are hanging back, which, judging their new 2013 tour dates below, is the last thing we would want anyone to do, as we think live, the band will be even more convincing.
album, Love Sign, January 15, 2013 via Free Energy Records. Known for their 70s flecked bangers, epic guitar riffs, and just the right amount of cowbell, the album was produced by John Agnello (Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr., Cyndi Lauper). Starting today, fans can pre-order the new album physically and digitally including an iTunes exclusive with bonus material. As a special thanks from the band, those who pre-order will receive the “Street Survivor” MP3 for free!
An anthemic jam bursting with and playful guitar licks sure to warm up the dance floor this winter, check out the “Street Survivor” stream where it premiered with RCRD LBL today or HERE. Feel free to post & share!
Dominating any room with their energized songs and sincere crowd connection both on and off the stage, Free Energy has toured with everyone from Titus Andronicus to Weezer. With a US tour kicking off in January, don’t miss the band that Rolling
Stone, SPIN, and Alternative Press have declared to be one of the most exciting bands live!

““Free Energy Perfect Their Power-Pop”
– Rolling Stone
” …seem like a shaggy small-town band from 1979–1983 has been whisked into the future, instead of plugging along occasionally opening for Cheap Trick or Loverboy.”
– New York Magazine, Nitsuh Abebe
“ferociously catchy cowbell-smacking”
“a good-time 1970s rock rip of epic proportions… unbridled and, in the spirit of things, totally rad (Best New Music)”
