George Thorogood & the Destroyers return Tuesday (March 25th) with a new album called Ride 'Til I Die. The title comes from a John Lee Hooker song that Thorogood covers on the album, with him on acoustic guitar, backed by drummer Jeff Simon and guitarist Jim Suhler.

Ride 'Til I Die is the first new set of material from the band since 1999's Half A Boy, Half A Man. Thorogood says that if it wasn't for the first song on the album, "Greedy Man," the set wouldn't have been made: "'Greedy Man' is the reason that CD sits in front of you. I heard it four years ago, and I had no record deal at the time when I heard it--and I did not wish to have a record deal at the time. I said, 'I think we have enough songs now where we can just play live and not have to worry about it.' And then I found that song, and I said, 'This song is so great, it's perfect for us, but now I gotta find 12 other ones, and then we gotta get a record deal, and they're gonna want more than one record,' and all the stuff that goes with it."

Thorogood kicks off an extensive North American tour on April 8th in Bakersfield, California.
