The Toadies Have A New EP On The Way.

After a couple Texas gigs later on this month in Tyler and San Antonio, local rock heroes the Toadies will continue their return to prominence, embarking on a month-and-a-half-long tour of the West Coast with Social Distortion.

Then? Oh, just a new EP — the first release of new material from the band since 2008's No Deliverance, which came after a seven-year lull in the wake of the band's turns-out-it-was-only-temporary breakup.

The first of two planned EP releases from the band, the new release called Play.Rock.Music. will feature at least four new songs — and possibly as many as six — from the band, which is currently wrapping up recording for the release this week down in Austin.

A couple of Austinites are helping out on the release, too: One already completed track currently being called “Rattlers Revival” features bouncing horn accompaniment from Black Joe Lewis' backing band, The Honeybears.

It's one hell of a romp, too — perhaps the best song the band has released in over a decade — and a damn fine sign that the band is returning to form now that its members have been reunited for over five years this time around.

The EP will earn its release on May 10. Not long after, on Saturday, June 16, the band will celebrate the new disc with a hometown release show at the Palladium Ballroom.
