Concord Records

Released: 04.06.21







With an abundance of snarling, gritty blues rockers, Hardware is exactly the album you should want from Billy F Gibbons. With crunching riffs and wailing solos, Billy sneers his way through 12 dirty anthems.

With an all-star band supporting him, the album launches into the exact mix of old school, nostalgic, American blues rock that Billy has spent years perfecting. The album might not be redefining Gibbons’ musical journey, but it shows a master craftsman swaggering across the fast lane. Simply put, Hardware is unrestrained indulgence and it feels fantastic. Without feeling worn out or tired, Billy revitalises a dying art form and gives blues rock the filthy revival it deserves.
