Music For Speeding!!
01 February 2003
Out NOW in Japan and Europe!!

Marty is in Japan now continuing a massive promotional tour for `Music For Speeding`. The tour started with 2 weeks of all day live radio interviews and jam sessions, with stations in Tokyo and nationwide. Marty reached an approximate 3 million listeners with the radio portion of the promotion and the promo trip is in the 2nd stage now, with a nationwide promo/seminar tour sponsored by equipment giant Roland/Boss. (See `Worldwide Domination` for more info) Marty spent 2 days at the Roland factory trying out secret new gear updates and advising the staff about ways to make the gear even better. Marty has been getting into the updates of the VG-88 effects unit which contains some truly jaw-dropping sounds.
The initial reviews of the record in Japan have been great, and many non-metal, non-guitar magazines and radio stations are jumping on Marty`s bandwagon for the first time.

At the same time, European promotion is awaiting Marty as the European release is in February. He will hit 6 countries on this trip.

Moria Records in Brazil will release MFS in South America and a promo tour is in the works for that as well. Marty has always maintained a great relationship with his South American fans, and this will be his first trip down there to officially promote his solo music.

In America, Steve Vai`s Favored Nations is moving forward with promoting the spring release of MFS. This is going to be a great campaign, and Marty is doing all he can to tour the US in the summer and get to as much of the US as possible! Get ready!! Stay here for more updates and tons of new pics to come.
Update!!!Marty is now in Europe doing an extensive promo trip, including over 75 interviews, along with live radio performances. Germany and Holland have gone exceptionally well and now the media of Spain, France, Italy and the UK welcome Marty and the release of Music For Speeding. Exclusive promo trip pic will be posted on this site by March.

UPDATE!!
The Europe promo trip is done and after doing no less than 78(!) interviews and live radio broadcasts all around Europe Marty returns to Japan to do 8 seminars for MI Japan.
Thanks and props go to the many DJs, journalists, photogs and everyone from Mascot Records in Europe who welcomed Marty and made the trip such a success and geared the Europeans up for the masterpiece, 'Music For Speeding'!!!!
