Big B has been officially added to the The Dirty Heads upcoming Cabin By The Sea Tour with The Expendables, and will serve as support on the tour throughout June and July. Big B will be performing songs from his upcoming studio album Fool's Gold, which is scheduled for a July 9th release through Suburban Noize Records.
"I'm really excited to head out on tour with not only some great bands, but some good friends. This tour has been a long time in the making, and it will be the perfect way to kick off the summer," says Big B. "I hope that the bars are ready because I know the boys in Dirty Heads and Expendables know how to party. It's going to be a great tour and I can't wait for everyone to hear the track I did with Dirty Heads for my new album."
Big B's new album Fool's Gold features musical collaborations with Slightly Stoopid, The Dirty Heads, as well as members of legendary punk outfits NOFX and Pennywise. The end result is a collection of songs that are just as contagious as Big B's thuggish charm. With the entire music industry focused on finding the next huge star on reality television, Big B has taken a back-to-basics approach on "Fool's Gold" and filled it with fun spirited songs that can fit into any music lover's playlist. The album is rich is musical diversity and is cleverly inventive, as Big B seamlessly bridges the gap between rock, hip-hop, and alternative.
Big B has also released a video teaser for his new single "Here Comes The Lightning," which was co-written by P!nk and producer Butch Walker. The full-length video will premiere on VEVO May 16th, 2013.
