Benjamin Booker Announces 2017 US Fall Tour; New Album 'Witness' Out Now

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Benjamin Booker has confirmed a run of headline North American tour dates behind his new album 'Witness,' out now via ATO Records. Tickets will go on sale this Friday, June 9th at 10am local time. Full itinerary below, more info here:

'Witness' is Booker's most powerful artistic statement to date and has been met with some of the best press of Booker's career, earning praise from Rolling Stone ("gritty, genre-bending"), Time ("soulful"), FADER ("packs a punch"), NPR Music ("heart-racing") + more. Entertainment Weekly described it as "Otis Redding covering Ty Segall in an abandoned warehouse." Earlier this Spring NPR Music shared the title track (featuring Mavis Staples), paired with a powerful personal statement from Booker detailing the album's origins in Mexico City:
