MUSIC NEWS - Provogue Records has announce that guitarist Joe Bonamassa will release his 12th full- length solo album, DUST BOWL in the USA on March 22, 2011 (UK release is March 21). The album release will coincide with Bonamassa's upcoming Dust Bowl 2011 World Tour that will take him to cities across America, Canada, Europe, Asia and Australia.
"I think Dust Bowl is the best album we've ever done," said Bonamassa recently. "I'm finding more inspiration in storytelling in my 30s, in writing songs that are about something more profound than my baby left me. I like albums that are made with the right intentions and sound organic and a little rough around the edges, like a great band playing live in the room."

Dust Bowl is Joe Bonamassa's sixth collaboration with producer Kevin "The Caveman" Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Black Crowes, Black Country Communion) and features collaborations with Nashville legends Vince Gill and John Hiatt, vocalist Beth Hart, and Joe's Black Country Communion band-mate, Glenn Hughes.
DUST BOWL is his follow-up to 2010's Black Rock and the self-titled debut album from Black Country Communion, the Bonamassa-helmed, British-American rock supergroup featuring Glenn Hughes, Jason Bonham and Derek Sherinian.
