ATO Records is pleased to announce the release of John Butler Trio’s label debut, April Uprising, available now at iTunes and www.johnbutlertrio.com. Rolling Stone applauded April Uprising as having “melody, subtlety, authenticity, sophistication.” As the follow-up to 2007’s critically acclaimed and globally successful release, Grand National, April Uprising is described as Butler’s most focused, diverse and accessible album to date.

April Uprising has already generated a #1 hit with the single “One Way Road.” The album’s title was inspired by John’s experiences on the hit TV genealogy show, Who Do You Think You Are, which takes well-known artists and traces their family trees. Getting to know his ancestors

John Butler Trio helped him to make better sense of his passions as a writer and musician.

John Butler Trio announces the first run of dates behind the release, including the band’s 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. This will be the band’s first full North American tour with the new line up, consisting of Butler with drummer Nicky Bomba and bassist Byron Luiters. State Radio will be on all concerts. Medeski Martin & Wood will be added to the Red Rocks bill.

“Nicky, Byron and I are really excited about this next North American tour. Hooking up with Chad and the State Radio crew is something we have wanted to do for a long time. And then there's our first headline at Red Rocks with the legendary Medeski Martin & Wood which is gonna be sublime for us and is a total dream come true,” says Butler.

"April Rising" is Available at iTunes and www.johnbutlertrio.com now.
