ZZ Top Reveal Release Date, Tracklist and Title of New EP


When it comes to great Texas rock n’ roll, ZZ Top is always at the top of anybody’s list. If you’ve ever seen them live, you know they are as good in concert as they are on any of their albums. I was lucky enough to see them way back in the day when Tres Hombres came out in ’73, and the flat out rocked. Many years later when I was living in New Mexico, I caught them again in 1990 on the Recycler tour, and although their sound was a bit more polished, they still had the goods. So, finally they have some new material on the way. You’ll get to hear the full-length version the new single ‘I Gotsta Get Paid‘ next Tuesday (June 5), when they release the four-track digital EP ‘Texicali.’

Along with the single, ‘Texicali’ includes the new songs ‘Chartreuse,’ ‘Over You,’ and ‘Consumption.’ Fans purchasing the EP will get a pro-rated discount on the purchase of the band’s long-gestating full-length album when it is released. There’s still no official title or release date for that project, by the way.

Guitarist Billy Gibbons insists the band is excited with what it has in store for fans. “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,” explained Gibbons in a press release.

“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 this fall.”

In the meantime, ZZ Top is on the road headlining the Gang of Outlaws Tour, along with supporting acts 3 Doors Down and Gretchen Wilson. We’re assuming there will be plenty of Jeremiah Weed at the concession stand.
