"Bad D.N.A.", the new video from Marty Friedman, can be viewed below. The clip was directed by Visual Trap, which has helmed all of the videos for DIR EN GREY. The song is the title track of Friedman's tenth solo album, which was released in Japan on August 25, 2010 via Avex. The CD was produced by Marty and engineered by Steve Hardy and Shinnosuke Miyazawa (LADY GAGA, GUNS N' ROSES) this April/May at The Village in Los Angeles, California.

According to a posting on Friedman's web site, "Bad D.N.A." is "a natural progression, picking up where 'Loudspeaker' and 'Tokyo Jukebox' left off and adding its own twists and turns."

"Bad D.N.A." track listing:

01. Specimen
02. Bad D.N.A.
03. Weapons Of Ecstacy
04. Hatejoke
05. Glorious Accident
06. Random Star
07. Picture
08. Battle Scars
09. School Spirit Delinquent
10. Exorcism Parade
11. Time To Say Goodbye (bonus track)

Friedman's ninth solo album, "Tokyo Jukebox", was released in Europe on February 22, 2010 via Mascot Records. The CD featured extensive liner notes (written by Friedman in the "story behind the song" format) which are exclusive to the European release.
