John Butler Trio New AlbumStream For Free on JamBase

Album Released April 6, 2010 on ATO Records, Fans Listen For Free On JamBase

John Butler Trio returns with their first studio album in three years, April Uprising. Released on April 6, 2010 through ATO Records, the album is streaming exclusively on JamBase for free. You can check out the JamBase review of April Uprising here.

The album finds the multi-platinum Australian artist with a new lineup and a new label in the States, ATO Records. As with all of Butler's projects, this is an album that combines the personal, the political and the musically memorable with skill and passion. Recorded at The Compound, Butler's self-built studio in the heart of his hometown of Fremantle, Western Australia, and mixed in Melbourne, Australia at Sing Sing Studios, April Uprising is the follow-up to 2007's critically acclaimed and globally successful release, Grand National. April Uprising has already yielded a #1 single in Australia with "One Way Road;" which is currently the "most added" track on Triple A radio in the States.

Butler unveiled his new band mates in June 2009: Melbourne musician Nicky Bomba (drums and percussion) and Byron Luiters (bass) from Sydney outfit Ray Mann Three. The newly revitalized JBT recorded at The Compound with long-time engineer Robin Mai and found themselves with whole new musical palette in the can: playful and explosive, rhythmically complex and melodically immediate, charged with new purpose but more committed than ever to the principles of classic song craft.

JBT has also built a reputation as a live band not to be missed. This will be the band's first full North American tour with the new lineup and includes a return to Red Rocks, this time as a headliner, as well as first-time stops at Central Park's Summerstage and Philadelphia's Penn's Landing. State Radio will be on all concerts, with Medeski Martin & Wood added to the Red Rocks bill. Check out our recent review of the new JBT here.
