New York, NY (Top40 Charts) In the midst of a massive US tour, The Marcus King Band have announced a handful of new tour dates including stops at the prestigious Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Gasparilla Music Festival, Lockn' Festival and many more.

Late last year, The Marcus King Band released its critically-acclaimed, self-titled sophomore album produced by his longtime hero Warren Haynes. The album was released via Fantasy Records and met with great acclaim from the likes of Relix, Guitar World and, No Depression. NPR called King "A formidable talent" and The Washington Post said "King is poised to be one of music's next great guitarists — a virtuosic talent capable of playing blues, rock, R&B, country, soul and established as a songwriter, singer and bandleader."

King was recently featured in The Philadelphia Inquirer and said he is "...poised to become a bona fide guitar superstar."

"Marcus is the first player I've heard since Derek Trucks to play with the maturity of a musician well beyond his age," Haynes says. "He's very much influenced by the blues, but also by jazz, rock, soul music, and any timeless genre of music. You can hear the influences, but it all comes through him in his own unique way. He has one of those voices that instantly draws you in, and his guitar playing is an extension of his voice and vice versa."

Written entirely on the road and recorded during a series of sessions at Carriage House Studios in Stamford, CT, the album features Marcus King on lead vocals and guitar, Jack Ryan on drums and percussion, Stephen Campbell on bass, Matt Jennings on keys and organ, Dean Mitchell on saxophone, and Justin Johnson on trumpet, trombone and backing vocals. The album also includes a number of the band's mentors and collaborators, including Derek Trucks (who plays guitar on "Self-Hatred") and Warren Haynes, who in addition to producing the album, adds his trademark slide guitar on "Virginia."
