WALTER TROUT Battle Scars Limited Gatefold 180gram Vinyl 2LP Set + Download

Overview:
Blues guitar virtuoso Walter Trout triumphantly returns with his new studio album. Joyful, energized guitar-and-vocal performances frame the dozen original songs that narrate his hard-won, life-or-death struggle waiting for, and ultimately receiving, a life-saving liver transplant. With bristling energy, unflagging virtuosity and lyrics that cut to the core of human hope and willpower, Battle Scars, chronicles Walter’s horrific battle with liver failure. But the 12-song set also captures the international guitar hero on a new high - playing and singing at the peak of his abilities, infusing even his darkest numbers with creative joy that sweeps like a beacon. Over the decades Trout has accumulated numerous honors. He is a two-time winner of the “Overseas Artist of the Year” title at the British Blues Awards, and is a three-time Blues Music Awards nominee. Trout’s six-string prowess earned the number six slot in BBC Radio 1’s “Top 20 Guitarist” listener’s poll, tying with Queen’s Brian May. Trout is now moving triumphantly forward in his 50th year as a guitarist. He is in the midst of a global tour (UK dates in November) with his band: keyboardist Sammy Avila, drummer Michael Leasure, and new bassist Johnny Griparic, who joined in time to record Battle Scars in Los Angeles’ Kingsize Soundlabs with Trout’s longtime producer Eric Corne.
