Butch Walker released his highly anticipated seventh full-length album Afraid Of Ghosts via Dangerbird Records in February to a massive response, with the album debuting at #1 on the Top New Artist chart as well as in the Billboard Top 200 and #30 in overall digital albums. Now, Walker has announced a long-awaited headlining tour this spring, in addition to several appearances at SXSW next week, including Willie Nelson’s Heartbreaker Banquet!
In celebration of the tour news and upcoming SXSW shows, Walker unveils a striking and deeply personal look at the creation of Afraid of Ghosts with a behind-the-scenes video directed by Noah Abrams. Produced by Grammy nominee Ryan Adams at his PAX AM Studios, the album also features friends and special guests Bob Mould and Johnny Depp, and the video displays special moments as these collaborators spontaneously create together.

Late last fall Walker wrapped a US tour supporting Ryan Adams, winning fans with his overwhelming talent and incredible stage presence. Fans old and new have been itching for the opportunity to see him play full live sets, and their chance has finally arrived.
