Billy & the Boyz are still at it…
The guys in ZZ Top have spent much of the last 45 years on the road, and 2014 will be no different.
The Texas trio have announced a run of tour dates that will keep them busy from March to April, with an extra handful of European shows scheduled to take place during June and July. They represent the latest round of appearances in support of the band’s 15th studio album, ‘La Futura,’ released to general acclaim in Sept. 2012. Nine years in the making, the record is the product of sessions so productive that guitarist Billy Gibbons has suggested the band could release another album without needing to set foot inside the studio.
“The label didn’t really want to release a dual disc in this rather topsy-turvy musical landscape, where promoting new material is so challenging,” explained Gibbons, who expressed hopes of getting the songs out in the near future. “So we’re sitting on 10 more songs … We have that big ball of wax waiting to roll.”
