More about Idol's Kings & Queens of the Underground:

The artwork for Kings & Queens of the Underground (seen above) was designed by street artist and graphic designer Shepard Fairey.

The album will arrive close to the release of BILLY IDOL’s highly anticipated self-written autobiography, DANCING WITH MYSELF, which as previously announced will be released worldwide the week of October 7.

IDOL and his band, including longtime collaborator and guitarist Steve Stevens, will launch a European Tour in November, the first of several legs of a World Tour that will continue into 2015.
