Elk Grove Village, IL (September 9, 2015) -- Effect pedal manufacturer Function f(x) LLC today announced the launch of The Third Rail, the company's second product and follow-up to the successful Clusterfuzz. Featuring two independent overdrive channels in a single box, The Third Rail offers six knobs and four switches to delight tone tweakers worldwide.

And just like company’s other offerings, there is no pixie dust inside the box; just great tone supported by solid circuit design and manufacturing practices.

Designed for guitarists who need a wide array of overdrive tones from a single pedal, The Third Rail offers players a one-of-a-kind bypass system that allows them to craft the sounds they need with minimal tap-dancing while on stage.

The British songwriter traversed the bleak thoroughfares of his past while writing his autobiographical sophomore album, Seventeen Going Under—a tale of growing up down-and-out, set to an epic chorus of Jazzmasters and soaring sax.

British songwriter Sam Fender hails from North Shields, England, an industrial coastal port town near the North Sea, about eight miles northeast of Newcastle upon Tyne. Fender grew up in this small village, which he calls "a drinking town with a fishing problem." He lived there with his mother on a council estate, a type of British public housing. This is the mise-en-scène for Sam Fender's coming-of-age autobiographical new album, Seventeen Going Under. On the album's cover, a photograph shows Sam sitting on a brick stoop.
