For all you lovers of some good ol classic Rock, this is going to be a good one! Its been over 9 years since the legendary ZZ Top have released a new studio album! The album tittled LA FUTURA is set for release on 10th September 2012 on American Recordings/Mercury Records. Its said that the album ‘harks back to the hallmark raw sound of the band’s formative years’.

Now celebrating their 42nd year with the same line-up, Gibbons along with bassist/vocalist Dusty Hill and drummer Frank Beard have come up with ten tracks that reflect the band’s intuitive take on rock brought to new, sometimes surreal, plateaus.  “We thought long and hard about what this album should be,” commented Gibbons.  “We wanted to recall the directness of our early stuff but not turn our backs on contemporary technology.  The result of this melding of the past and the present is, of course, LA FUTURA.”
