The album’s release is preceded by the release of the single “West Coast Junkie” on March 26. The video for the track was filmed near Joshua Tree, a stone’s throw from the studio.


Sorum, veteran of Guns ‘N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver and the Cult also serves as Hardware’s drummer and was joined in the album’s core band by guitarist Austin Hanks. The same Gibbons-Sorum-Hanks aggregation recorded The Big Bad Blues, Gibbon’s earlier solo effort for Concord and winner of the Blues Foundation’s Blues Music Award.





Lyrics


Rollin’ my Camino down Route 66

Thinkin’ bout my girl, got get me a fix

Ain’t no one like her, yeah she got some tricks

Baby so fine, built like a ton of bricks

I’m a west coast junkie from a Texas town

And when I get to Cali it’s going down

My baby so tight like no one around

I’m just a west coast junkie from a Texas town

On the Mother Road cookin’ and built for speed.

My baby she waitin’, she know what I need

Gonna bring her Champagne and a ‘lil bit of weed

Girl got me itchin’ like a poppy seed

I’m a west coast junkie from a Texas town

And when I get to Cali it’s gonna go down

My baby so tight like no one around

I’m just a west coast junkie from a Texas town

I’m a west coast junkie from a Texas town

And when I get to Cali it’s gonna go down

My baby so tight like no one around

I’m just a west coast junkie from a lonesome Texas town
