We tend to love combinations of garage rock and glam here at If It's Too Loud..., so we're obviously going to adore the retro rock of Billy Tibbals. Tibbals was born and raised in London before his family moved to Los Angeles when he was eleven. His latest single, "Burn Out!," sounds much more 70's London than 2024 Los Angeles. It's pure glitter and glam. If you told me that Tibbals was recording a lost T. Rex song, I would completely believe you. "Burn Out!" is just pure rock and roll fun and swagger mixed up with the best parts of power pop and glam. Sometimes you just want rock that's fun, and that's what Billy Tibbals provides.
Billy Tibbals says of his new single:
“‘Burn Out!’ is the wild opening track of the new record. It’s a sort of cautionary tale of a jaded rock and roll star. I guess it’s sort of expressing my fears of falling into some of those less appealing clichés of the genre. That’s not gonna happen though!”
You can watch the video for "Burn Out!" below. Nightlight Stories is due out April 26 on Silver Arrow Records. For more on Billy Tibbals, check out the artist's website. Upcoming tour dates opening for The Black Crowes are below the video.
