John Butler Trio continues push behind "Uprising"
Australian roots rockers John Butler Trio will take off on a North American run later this fall, headlining club shows in support of the recently released "April Uprising."
The group will first take on five shows abroad and four support performances for the Dave Matthews Band -- two in Boston (11/9-10) and two in New York City (9/13-14) -- before beginning the headlining trek, which officially gets underway Nov. 14 in Baltimore. Eleven more gigs spread across the continent are also on the books before the tour's conclusion Dec. 3 in Oakland, CA. The full schedule, including international shows, is listed at right.
Ticket pre-sales begin Friday (9/24) via the band's website.
"April Uprising," the John Butler Trio's fifth studio effort, surfaced in March and debuted at No. 36 on the Billboard 200, making it the group's highest-charting debut. The album also marks the band's first release on the ATO Records label.
The trio recently unveiled the documentary "These Are The Days: The Making of April Uprising." The hour-long film, which is available at the band's website includes a behind-the-scenes look at the recording process, as well as interviews with the band.
