September 9, 2013 – Following the quick sell out of his first show in London in a decade at The Borderline on October 3rd, Jonny Lang will return to London for performance at Shepherd’s Bush Empire on April 25th 2014.

Tickets will go on sale this Friday September 12th from the venue box office, select ticket agents and the tour 24hr Ticket hotline 0844 338 0000 and on line at BookingsDirect.com

Lang’s first studio album in seven years, Fight For My Soul, was just released last week via Mascot Label Group.  The album was named BBC Radio 2’s Album Of The Week upon its release.

Over a period of three years, Lang collaborated with producer/songwriter Tommy Sims (who co-wrote Eric Clapton’s GRAMMY-winning “Change the World”) crafting the album’s elegant rock ‘n’ soul tracks from the ground up.

Textured arrangements, gorgeous vocal melodies, and expressive guitar playing are all found in generous abundance on Fight For My Soul, however, the album defies categorization by a single genre.

“This album is something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time,” offers Lang. “Some of these songs may surprise people, but that’s what it’s all about.  It keeps it fresh, and it keeps me growing.  Creatively, I think there is a lot more going on inside of me than I’ve been sharing on record so far.  Much of what I’ve experienced through music and life in general is in these songs.”

Since the release of his 1997 major label debut “Lie To Me”, the then 16 year-old Lang has built a reputation as one of the best live performers and guitarists of his generation.

GUITAR WORLD: Exclusive: Jonny Lang Premieres “Blew Up (The House)” Lyric Video

JL_bUTH_lyricvid_1Today, GuitarWorld.com presents the exclusive premiere of Jonny Lang’s new lyric video for “Blew Up (The House).”

The track is from Lang’s new album, Fight For My Soul, which will be released September 17 by Concord Music Group.

Fight For My Soul is Lang’s first studio album in seven years.

“This particular record has taken quite a long time to finish for a lot of different reasons,” Lang said. “Most of all, I started having kids a few years back. Between being with the family, and being out on the road touring, the last thing you want to do when home is to go make a record. I’m really happy with the body of work we have for this one. It’s kind of hard to be excited and know what the record is going to be like when the process is extended over such a long period of time. Today, sitting here, I’m really proud of the recordings.”

Lang has been working on the album for three years with producer Tommy Sims, who co-wrote Eric Clapton’s “Change the World.” The duo collaborated on the project from the ground up.

“Much of what I’ve experienced through music and life in general is in these songs,” Lang said about the new album. “I really like reaching out and connecting with people. For me, this is what it’s all about. It keeps it fresh with different experiences every day.”

Fight For My Soul is available for pre-order at Amazon.com.

Along with a full North American tour schedule, Lang will embark on an extended European tour in October.

GUITAR WORLD: Jonny Lang to Release New Album, ‘Fight For My Soul,’ September 17

Jonny Lang has announced the upcoming release of Fight For My Soul, his first studio album in seven years.

The album, the followup to 2006’s Turn Around, will be released September 17 via Concord Records. The album’s first single, “Blew Up (The House),” began streaming today at USAToday.com

“This particular record has taken quite a long time to finish for a lot of different reasons,” Lang said. “Most of all, I started a family a few years back. Between family time and being out on the road, I really had to pick my spots to fit in recording.

“This album is something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. Some of these songs may surprise people, but that’s what it’s all about. It keeps it fresh, and it keeps me growing. Creatively, I think there is a lot more going on inside of me than I’ve been sharing on record so far. Much of what I’ve experienced through music and life in general is in these songs.”

SOUND SPIKE: Jonny Lang preps for “Fight For My Soul” tour

Blues singer/guitarist Jonny Lang has mapped out extensive North American and European excursions in support of his long-awaited new album, “Fight For My Soul.”

The Grammy winner will close out the summer with a slew of performances that begin Friday (7/5) in Muskegon, WI, and extend through a Sept. 27 show in Glenside, PA. Two weeks in Europe follow, after which Lang will return stateside for a second leg that includes club and theater shows kicking off Oct. 18 in Houston, TX. That portion boasts 13 performances through a Nov. 24 concert in Atlanta, GA.

Lang is preparing for the Sept. 17 drop of “Fight For My Soul,” his sixth studio album. The collection marks the musician’s first new effort since 2006’s “Turn Around,” which won a Grammy Award for Best Rock or Rap Gospel Album.

“Some of these songs may surprise people, but that’s what it’s all about,” Lang said of the new album in a press release. “It keeps it fresh, and it keeps me growing. Creatively, I think there is a lot more going on inside of me than I’ve been sharing on record so far. Much of what I’ve experienced through music and life in general is in these songs.”
