4 New Songs On 12" Vinyl EP!
His First Release In 7 Years!

Billy Idol's first new release in nearly seven years was produced by Butch Walker (Green Day, Weezer) and features 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 lead single "Bitter Taste" features some of Idol's most introspective and confessional lyrics ever, as he confronts death, rebirth, and his personal growth in the thirty-one years since his near-fatal 1990 motorcycle accident. "I think everyone has been feeling more reflective (during the pandemic). So, it seemed quite logical and natural to write something about my motorcycle accident," Idol explains. "Certainly, the motorcycle accident was the catharsis, the wake-up moment. A little bit of me got left on that roadside. But it wasn't necessarily a bad thing in the end; it was a wake-up call. Maybe on that roadside I left behind the irreverent youthful Billy and opened the door for a more attentive father and a more sensitive musician."
