Hot on the heels of his new video for “Here Comes The Lightning”, Las Vegas hooligan Big B has premiered the previously unreleased track “Progress” featuring Chali 2na from Jurassic 5 on Popmatters.com. “Progress” was recorded during the sessions for Big B’s new album, Fool’s Gold, but wound up not making the final cut. Fool’s Gold is scheduled for a July 9th release on Suburban Noize Records and is currently available for pre-order here.

“When we finished recording ‘Fool’s Gold’, I had all these left over tracks that didn’t fit in anywhere on the album, but they were still great songs. I wanted let fans hear the tracks that didn’t make the cut, as a thank you for all their support over the years,” said Big B.“This album is just me growing up a little bit musically. I think I’ve evolved as an artist, and I know every album has been different, but I think people are starting to finally see it.”
Fool’s Gold features collaborations with Slightly Stoopid, The Dirty Heads, and members of legendary punk outfits NOFX and Pennywise. The end result is a collection of songs that are just as contagious as Big B’s thuggish charm. With the entire music industry focused on finding the next huge star on reality television, Big B has taken a back-to-basics approach on Fool’s Gold and filled it with fun, spirited songs that can fit into any music lover’s playlist.

The album is rich is musical diversity and is cleverly inventive, as
Big B seamlessly bridges the gap between rock, hip-hop, and alternative. The video for the track “Here Comes The Lightning”, which was co-written by Pink and producer Butch Walker, is currently racking up the views on YouTube and also is winning fans at radio.
Fans can catch Big B with The Dirty Heads and The Expendables on the Cabin By The Sea Tour throughout June and July.
