Billy Idol, like Ringo Starr, is concentrating on releasing EPs instead of albums.
He will release Cage on September 23rd, the follow-up to last September's Roadside and second in a trilogy.
“The last EP, we were kind of warming up to this," says Idol. "This EP is a lot more coming at you. Loads more guitar. And that’s a lot of fun. We were pretty fired up by the fact that we hadn’t played for a couple of years, and suddenly we were bursting on stage, and it kind of woke us up to what the next EP could be: That it could be a little more strum and drang, a little more coming at you, a little more rock ‘n’ roll, a little more [bleep] you! Well, a tiny bit of [bleep] you, anyhow. The bottom line is we had a lot of fun doing it.”
In making this announcement Idol has released the title track as the first single.
Idol is finally back on the road following a sinus infection that forced him to cancel his tour earlier this year opening for Journey.
He performs in Saratoga, California tonight (Wednesday), Boise, Idaho on Friday and Lincoln, California on Sunday.
