ZZ Top have announced their ‘Raw Whisky’ tour of North America. The first leg of the tour, starting on May 27 in San Diego, California, will see the band on stage in 50 venues across North America, with more dates to be announced soon. The tour’s title is a hat tip to both the forthcoming album as well as the recent release of ZZ Top Tres Hombres whisky from Balcones Distilling of Waco, Texas, a flavourful 100% proof mash bill of roasted blue corn, malted barley and rye.

In addition, the Texan outfit will release a new album titled Raw that was recorded in connection with their wildly popular and critically lauded 2019 Netflix documentary That Little Ol’ Band From Texas. The Grammy-nominated feature from Banger Films and director Sam Dunn includes an interlude that finds the group’s classic line-up — Billy Gibbons, Frank Beard and the late Dusty Hill — gathering for a very intimate session at Gruene Hall, “the oldest continually run dance hall in Texas.” That performance provided the basis for the Raw album release.

Raw will be released July 22 by Shelter Records/BMG on 180-gram vinyl, CD and through digital platforms and is dedicated “in righteous memory of Dusty Hill.”
