DAVY KNOWLES & BACKDOOR SLAM set for Lollapalooza
New studio album produced by Peter Frampton out this summer
Live From Bonnaroo out now
21-year-old British guitar whiz Davy Knowles & his band Back Door Slam have a busy 2009 ahead of them: their second studio album COMING UP FOR AIR - produced by singer-songwriter-guitarist Peter Frampton and mixed by legendary producer/mixer Bob Clearmountain (Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney, The Who) - will be released digitally May 19 and in stores June 16. The band will also be on the road throughout the summer with a number of major summer U.S. festival appearances scheduled including Lollapalooza, Rothbury Festival and Mile High Music Festival. They recently released their live album LIVE FROM BONNAROO (Blix Street Records) - recorded during their performance at Bonnaroo 2008 - and Davy just wrapped a three-week solo-acoustic tour with Jeff Beck.

[Davy Knowles] is talented like very few bluesmen these days. He shreds like a young Robert Cray and wails like the love of his life was just hit by a truck. Live, Back Door Slam reminds me of the Black Keys... Highly recommended.
