Extreme is releasing its first new album in 15 years, Six, and have shared the lead single ‘RISE’, however, today the band have released not one, but two more tracks from the forthcoming new album, ‘Six’, which is due on June 9th. Listen and watch below…

Out June 9th, ‘Six’ is the band’s sixth album and first since ‘Saudades de Rock’ in 2008, and was inspired by the death of guitar great Eddie Van Halen in 2020.

When Eddie Van Halen passed, it really hit me,” said guitarist Nuno Bettencourt in a statement. “I’m not going to be the one who will take the throne, but I felt some responsibility to keep guitar playing alive. So, you hear a lot of fire on the record.”

Following the release of Saudades de Rock, Bettencourt began touring with Rihanna as the lead guitarist on her Last Girl on Earth Tour in November 2009, and has continued playing on her following tours, including Loud (2010), 777 (2012), and Diamonds World (2013).

Check out both new singles/videos below:
