Marty Friedman Joins Axes & Anchors Cruise


Axes & Anchors is the first ever guitar centered cruise. It’s a five day, four night cruise of a lifetime. Whether you want to shred with the best or just come for the legendary shows, Axes & Anchors is set to be a rocking good time.

Axes & Anchors will set sail on February 20th, 2016 from Miami, Florida and sail to Key West and Nassau, Bahamas. The lineup for performances and clinics is already massively impressive including two headline performances from Breaking Benjamin. With so much time before anchors up, the lineup of monumental performers continues to expand.

As of August 20th, Marty Friedman has been confirmed not only for two sets with his band but a guitar clinic as well. Friedman, voted 2014 “Best Shredder” as well as his album Inferno being voted “Best Shred Album” by Guitar World readers, will showcase his awe inspiring techniques. Friedman has been touring around the world since the release of his critically acclaimed album Inferno. His participation in Axes & Anchors is just one stop on Friedman’s first American tour in 12 years. Says Friedman of taking his talents to sea, “Axes & Anchors is not only the first cruise I`ve ever played on, but it`s the first cruise I`ve ever been on so I`m beyond excited to join in this awesome event. Not only am I going to play my ass off, but I`m planning to learn a TON from all the other super players on this trip. How many times do you get to surround yourself with this many amazing guys in one place?! I can`t wait!”
