In a recent interview, Strung Out frontman Jason Cruz revealed the band’s highly-anticipated upcoming album will be called “Transmission Alpha Delta.” When asked how he came up with the title, Cruz stated:
I found a piece of artwork, an image, from a really great artist and it just really described our music to me. So I hunted down the artist and got the permission to use it.

We’ll keep you posted as more details on the upcoming Strung Out album come to light! The band recently announced their upcoming box set “Volume One,” which contains 4 LPs (or 3 CDs) and a DVD, is set to be released on April 1st through Fat Wreck Chords.
