Ronni Le Tekrø / TNT guitarist to release first solo album in six years

Ronni Le Tekrø, guitarist with TNT, will release Bigfoot TV, his first solo album in six years. Bigfoot TV finds Le Tekrø musically developing his progressive rock sound last heard on Mein Ampf 1 and 2.

Bigfoot TV is out on 18 March 2022, on TBC Records via Cargo Records. The first single, Life On Long Island, is released on 18 February. Lyrically the album is about Le Tekrø’s life and values, and this first single covers his time in this New York State.

“My Life on Long Island was in Bayshore from 1984 to 1993,” Le Tekrø says. “Since then, I haven’t been [back] there. The song is about the summer of ’85 when everything seemed possible, and hard rock ruled the world. My tribute to my American family.”

Ronni Le Tekrø is considered one of the world’s most influential Metal guitarists, first and foremost with his band TNT, and in collaboration with jazz guitarist Terje Rypdal and as a diligently used studio musician.

Le Tekrø has sold over 4 Million albums with TNT and was named one of the world’s 25 best guitarists in its genre in 2009.
