The former Generation X frontman Billy Idol is set to release The Roadside EP, his first new material in nearly seven years, on the 17th September via Dark Horse Records. Produced by Butch Walker and featuring Idol’s longtime lead guitarist and co-writer Steve Stevens, The Roadside was conceived, recorded and mixed almost entirely under the shadow of the pandemic. The EP’s lead single, Bitter Taste, is now available along with and accompanying video directed by Steven Sebring.

To celebrate the forthcoming release, Idol is planning a run of 2021 tour dates that can be viewed here. The shows include headline performances at New York’s Capitol Theatre and Las Vegas’ Cosmopolitan, as well as an appearance at the Sea.Hear.Now Festival in Asbury Park, NJ.
