John Butler Trio’s Fifth Studio Album Finished

The new album “April Uprising” from the John Butler Trio is ready and set for a release in early 2010, and is featuring a new line up with Nicky Bomba on drums and percussion and Byron Luiters on bass.

The first single of the album are called “One Way Road”, John Butler has this to say on the forthcoming new single & album:

“One Way Road is the combination of pretty much most of my musical influences; dancehall, roots & rock. Somehow we found a way to bring all these feels in a way that sounds natural and not too contrived or cerebral .I’m really happy with how we captured the vibe of his song”.

And “The whole rehearsal and recording process so far has been a lot of fun and very gratifying. I feel the sounds and general spirit and energy of this album are best summed up in the words – free, melodic, funky, phat and rocking. There’s definitely a certain attitude that comes across on the album. Perhaps there’s a conviction, in a song writing and production sense, that I haven’t tapped into so much on earlier works that seems to be more prevalent on April Uprising. There’s chemistry and language that Nicky, Byron and I have found that really compliments these songs in all their different facets”.

The John Butler Trio is one of Australia’s biggest artists with sold out performances over the past two years, not only on home turf but also worldwide, and their latest album “Grand National”(which I personally recommend) received rave reviews & 3x Platinum. John Butler Trio will be touring all major cities in Australia next January.
