John Frusciante returns to Acid Test with Trickfinger II

The second instalment of the former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist's project is due out in September.

John Frusciante is releasing a new record as Trickfinger.

Like its predecessor, the former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist recorded the music for Trickfinger II back in 2007. Using a fleet of hardware synths and drum machines, the six-track LP was recorded directly to a CD burner via a cheap mixer with no overdubs. The music was never intended for release but Frusciante eventually agreed to publish the recordings on Oliver Bristow's Acid Test, which has been home to the likes of Donato Dozzy, Recondite and Tin Man. Trickfinger II will be available on vinyl and CD and as a digital download.

Acid Test will release Trickfinger II on September 8th, 2017.
