Description

Rock icon BILLY IDOL will release Kings & Queens Of The Underground, his first new album in almost a decade, on 20th October. The album will be released on Idol's own BFI Records, via Kobalt Label Services.

Kings & Queens Of The Underground was primarily produced by Trevor Horn, with Greg Kurstin also contributing as a producer to two songs, including the anthemic lead single, "Can't Break Me Down." .The album will arrive close to the release of Billy Idol's highly anticipated self-written autobiography, Dancing With Myself, which as previously announced will be released worldwide the week of 7th October.

The artwork for Kings & Queens Of The Underground, above, was designed by street artist and graphic designer Shepard Fairey. Idol and his band, including long-time collaborator and guitarist Steve Stevens, will launch a European Tour in November, the first of several legs of a world tour that will continue into 2015.

From punk pioneer to global superstar, William Michael Albert Broad, aka BILLY IDOL, has left an indelible mark on popular music and remained a household name for over three decades. His style, music, and attitude have transcended time and trend. Born in 1955 in Stanmore, North London, Idol was a central figure of the British punk movement. As part of the infamous Bromley Contingent, Idol fronted the pioneering punk band Generation X from 1976 until the band's split in 1981. Determined to break through in America, Idol hooked up with guitar genius Steve Stevens and a legendary musical partnership was forged. Idol has created some of rock's most enduring anthems including White Wedding, Dancing With Myself, Hot In the City, Eyes Without A Face and Rebel Yell. Billy Idol is the original punk rocker who found a way to take that sneering punk attitude into the pop and rock mainstream, carving out songs that have lasted a lifetime.
