Walter Trout's new album 'Battle Scars' will be released on October 23, 2015
Joyful, energized guitar-and-vocal performances frame the dozen original songs that narrate his hard-won, life-or-death struggle waiting for, and ultimately receiving, a life-saving liver transplant.
With bristling energy and lyrics that cut to the core of human hope and willpower, Walter Trout’s new album, Battle Scars, chronicles his horrific battle with liver failure. But the album also captures the international guitar hero playing and singing at the peak of his abilities, infusing even his darkest numbers with creative joy that sweeps like a beacon.
Trout is now moving triumphantly forward in his 50th year as a guitarist. Walter is back again!
