"Abnormal", the follow-up to Thal's previous offering, "Normal", is a hard rock album flavored with a light-hearted mix of different styles and genres, with catchy hooks and blistering guitar work.

When asked about the new project, Thal had the following to say: "It was October last year, I was about to fly into a fucking rage, went to go crash out at the studio, and all these songs just started flying out of my head. Spent the next few months recording drums, bass, guitars, vocals, opera singers and tuba players. Some people heard it and said it reminds them of the SEX PISTOLS with a little BEATLES/QUEEN vibe to it. Didn't have a plan, just did what I felt, and in the end this is what I got."

With recording completed and finishing touches being added to the tracks and art work, "Abnormal" will be ready for release In early June. Along with CDs being available for purchase, the tracks will be available for download on iTunes, and a very special limited edition Fan Pack will be available for diehard fans that want something a bit different in a limited quantity. The CD will be available at, as well as Bumblefoot's own artist-run partner Bald Freak Music,
