Blues singer Billy Price will make several stops in Western Pennsylvania as he tours in support of his new album, "Dog Eat Dog."

Blues singer and former Pittsburgh resident Billy Price will kick off a year-long tour in support of his new album with a release party Aug. 9 at Club Café.

Price returned to Greaseland Studio in San José, Calif., with producer Kid Andersen, to create a follow-up to his previous album, the Blues Music Award-nominated “Reckoning.”

Featuring 12 tunes and eight originals, “Dog Eat Dog” features collaborations with Price’s keyboard player Jim Britton, French guitarist Fred Chapellier and “Reckoning” writer Bill Troiani.

Price has recorded 17 albums and DVDs in addition to his early work with blues guitarist Roy Buchanan and his 2016 collaboration with late Chicago soul singer Otis Clay, “This Time For Real.”

Below, see Price’s April 2019 performance in Columbia, Md., with the Charm City Rhythm Band.

After the release show at Club Café, Price will make stops Aug. 24 at Club XL Live in Harrisburg, Aug. 25 at the Corks & Kegs Festival in Washington, Aug. 30 at 565 Live in Bellevue, and Aug. 31 at Portogallo Peppers N’at in Braddock. After a quick stop in Virginia, he will play Moondogs in Blawnox on Sept. 13 and Enix Brewing Co. in Homestead on Sept. 14.

“Dog Eat Dog” will be released Aug. 2.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
