    New Orleans superstar-in-the-making Benjamin Booker will tour the West Coast for the first time this August.

    He will release his self-titled debut on August 19. It is advanced by the HAWT lead single "Violent Shiver."

    Booker's KCRW "Morning Becomes Eclectic" session will air on August 26, so make a note!

    His music is a blitz of post-punk, raw rock and the blues. It's so amazing and blood-raw.

    Get a taste of "Violent Shiver" below. It will grab you by the shoulders and shake ya. That's how we like our rawk.
