Walter Trout Signs With Provogue Records

Walter Trout has signed a new deal with Provogue Records, an independent label based in The Netherlands specializing in guitar heavy Blues Rock. Other artists on the Provogue label include (Europe only) Joe Bonamassa, Rick Derringer, Leslie West, Pat Travers, Scott McKeon, Julian Sas, and Eric Gales. Walter Trout's first release for Provogue (the label's first U.S. release) is scheduled for late spring/early summer '08.

Walter Trout first signed with Provogue in 1989 where he released five albums: 1989's live CD Face the Music, Life In The Jungle (1990), Prisoner Of A Dream (1990), Transition (1992), and No More Fish Jokes (1992). He left the label briefly to go with Silvertone in 1994. After one release, Trout returned to Provogue in '95 and released three more albums: Breaking The Rules (1995), Positively Beale Street (1997), and Face The Music (2000). Trout signed with German-based Ruf Records in 1999, releasing a half dozen albums for the label. The Provogue label has established itself as one of the strongest brands in Blues Rock in Europe with it's latest success story being Joe Bonamassa.

The Provogue Records label, debuting in the United States in 2008, will be distributed by Megaforce/Sony RED Distribution. They plan approximately four releases a year.
