ZZ Top Coming to Dallas in June + Releasing New Digital EP [VIDEO]
ZZ Top kicked off its Gang of Outlaws tour with 3 Doors Down on Friday, and the trek is going to bring them to Texas on June 24.
But before ‘that little band from Texas’ makes it’s way back to the Lone Star state, the Texas trio are giving fans a sample of their upcoming studio album by releasing a digital EP titled Texicali on June 5.
The recording will include the following four songs from the upcoming album. “Chartreuse,” “Over You,” “Consumption” and “I Gotsta Get Paid,” the latter of which also is being used in a recently launched ad campaign for Jeremiah Weed alcoholic beverages.
Trust me, you’ve never heard, “I Gotsta Get Paid,” done like this before!
And, to make things even better, we’re giving away tickets to the Gang of Outlaws Tour. Find out how you can win tickets, right here!
“We were itching to get some new music out before the full album release; making available these four tracks seems like a good way to accomplish that most expeditiously,” says Billy Gibbons. “Dusty, Frank and I are happy with what’s been accomplished in the studio so we figured we’d provide some hot and tasty ‘hors d’oeuvres’ before the main course is served.”
The as-yet-untitled album, which is being co-produced by Gibbons and Rick Rubin, is due out either in late summer or early fall.
