Three-time Grammy-nominated guitarist and 25x Billboard chart-topper Joe Bonamassa has announced his new live album – Tales of Time – will be released worldwide on April 14th.

Available to pre-order now, the blues titan’s latest will be released in North America by J&R Adventures and distributed in the UK and Europe by Provogue/Mascot Label Group.

The LP's lead single, "The Loyal Kind," is available to stream now and is accompanied by a beautifully filmed concert video.

Shot last summer at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado, this epic rendition of the Time Clocks track is a small taster of the “sprawling and expansive” live concert film and album that will soon appear in CD/DVD, CD/BR, vinyl and digital formats.

“This live show represents our most progressive and largest production to date focusing on my most ambitious studio album to date, Time Clocks," said Bonamassa.

“The iconic Kevin Shirley [Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden, Journey] once again has produced both wonderful music and a wonderful visual. My band was a force of nature on this show and it truly was a special night.”
