The Motor City Madman himself, Ted Nugent, returned to action today, April 29, with a brand new studio album titled Detroit Muscle.

A news release states that the record contains “11 tracks of pure rock ‘n’ roll” with 10 of those written by “The Nuge” himself. The other track, naturally, is a new rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner.

Nugent had been flexing some of that Detroit Muscle in recent weeks in the form of a few pre-release singles, such as the thematically aggressive “Come And Take It”:

And “American Campfire,” which has a video featuring an American flag rippling in the wind, meat being grilled on the barbecue and other similar imagery:

“Born in the mighty Motor City in 1948, I was engulfed in authoritative dynamic grinding musicality that imprinted on my very soul, and this record maximizes the accumulation and lifetime celebration of that energy,” said Ted Nugent of the album in a statement. “Propelled by the animal grooves of rhythmgodz Greg Smith and Jason Hartless, my guitar remains fully erect every time I fondle her! I have never had so much fun celebrating Chuck Berry’s vision!”
