ZZ Top announces new live album “Raw” and more 2022 tour dates

The legendary Blues Rock band ZZ Top announced a new live album called “Raw”, to be released next July 22. The work was recorded back in 2019 when the band was filming the documentary “That Little Ol’ Band From Texas”. In an official statement the band talked about the album, saying it is: “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.”


“The album’s title is derived from the unfettered and straightforward manner in which the tracks were recorded. As seen in the film, the band members played, for the most part, together within sight of each other in the course of one day.”

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
