The John Butler Trio has announced it's new album, Grand National, will be released around the world in March. Right now we know it will be officially on sale in Australia on March 24th and in USA on March 27th; it will be released elsewhere in the same time period.
The band has also announced a series of shows to coincide with the album – they'll be touring the United States in a short while covering both coasts. The shows will be in smaller venues, creating a more intimate atmosphere. That also means tickets will be harder to come by, so starting this Saturday (1/27), those that pre-order the album from the band's web site will be given a shot at advanced concert tickets as well.
