He’ll do a West Hollywood show at the Conga Room July 1, two weeks before the tour kicks off in earnest at Tequila in Calgary, Alberta.
Alt-rocker Buddahead will open on the jaunt, which runs through early August.
White Trash Beautiful is Everlast’s first album since 2000’s Eat At Whitey’s, and finds him further exploring the guitar-based songwriting he first exhibited on the multiplatinum Whitey Ford Sings The Blues.
“A lot of what’s on this album is growing up,” he said. “When I was 19, let’s get drunk and jump around was my emotion, but I’m 34 now.”
Citing influences such as Johnny Cash and Hank Williams, he explains his broadening musical tastes as a natural part of growing up.
“When I was 20, I found rap and it was a form of rebellion. Now I’m reaching back to the things I shunned because it was my parents’ music.”
The album is his third solo effort since House Of Pain broke up, but his fourth overall: He recorded a lesser-known debut, Forever Everlasting, in 1990 when he was a member of Ice-T’s Rhyme Syndicate outfit.
