Kim Salmon — the prolific punk/blues/rock auteur and also founding member of The Scientists and Beasts of Bourbon — has announced a new album, My Script, and a corresponding national tour.

The veteran artist has stated that My Script, a candid and autobiographical long-player, is his first true solo album, its 20 tracks coming with an unprecedented organic ease for the songwriter.

"All I have done with this record is just make music and write songs without any criteria other than 'do I like this idea?' and 'does it sound good?'" Salmon said in a statement.

The album's soundscape ranges from full-band productions to bare-essentials minimalist tracks; there's even a collaboration with academic and media commentator Waleed Aly for the track Client JGT683.
