Benjamin Booker Announces November UK / European Tour Dates

New Album ‘Witness’ out now on Rough Trade Records

Rough Trade Records are excited to announce that Benjamin Booker will be returning to the UK and Europe this November to play further live dates, following his imminent July shows in Europe.  Benjamin’s new album ‘Witness’ has been heralded as a huge artistic leap – drawing on everything from the writings of James Baldwin to Freddie Gibbs to William Onyeabor’s 70s African psych-rock. The album has earned praise everywhere from Rolling Stone, FADER, Uncut, Line Of Best Fit, NPR Music, Noisey, Classic Rock, the NY Times + many more:

 

“A sensational album that sounds like a rallying cry for black America” – The Guardian

4/5 – MOJO

8/10 – Classic Rock

4/5 – Record Collector

“BB moves up several glorious gears on this sequel…Hot, fresh and thoughtful.” 4/5 – The Mirror

“A vital document… a brilliant work of art.  We couldn’t be more appreciative for this album.  What a record.” – Gigwise
