Yes it's true. Butch Walker will be opening for the band Train, for some reason, on most of their upcoming March dates. The tour is making a stop at the Carolina Theatre in Durham on Wednesday, March 10. Tickets for the show are already on sale here for $35. Check out the full list of tour dates below.
The super-producer and troubadour has a brand new album titled I Liked It Better When You Had No Heart coming out on February 23 performed by him and his latest band called The Black Widows. Two songs from the album, "Trash Day" and "She Likes Hair Bands," are available now on iTunes.
Butch will likely return later in 2010 to play his usual venue of choice in the Triangle, Lincoln Theatre. We'll certainly keep you posted on new developments. Check out photos and a review of his March 2009 show at Lincoln Theatre here.
Butch also produced by favorite album of 2009, The Films' Oh, Scorpio. It's only available digitally, so head over to iTunes and check it out.
