Walter Trout will release a live album recorded on his comeback tour following a liver transplant.

A trailer for Alive In Amsterdam can be viewed below. The album will launch on June 17 via Mascot/Provogue.

The album was recorded on November 25 in the Dutch city as he continued his recovery from a liver transplant and toured in support of his 2015 album Battle Scars.

Trout says: “We were rocking. If people are expecting a laid-back show, that’s not what they’ll get. This is potent stuff.

“That whole tour was kinda triumphant for me. Just to be back, after what I went through. But also to be playing with a renewed energy and commitment.”

Alive In Amsterdam will be available in 3LP + MP3, CD and digital formats.

Trout has a number of tour dates lined up for 2016.
