A new trailer for ZZ Top's 'That Little Ol' Band From Texas' documentary has been released.

Watch the trailer below.

The documentary premieres this 13th August at Hollywood's Cinerama Dome with all three bandmates in attendance. ZZ Top will also be kicking off their 50th-anniversary tour three days later with Cheap Trick as their main supporting act.

"ZZ Top: That Little Ol' Band From Texas tells the story of how three oddball teenage bluesmen – Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard – became one of the biggest, most beloved bands on the planet, all while maintaining a surrealist mystique that continues to intrigue fans and entice onlookers 50 years after the band's inception," a statement reads.

"Buoyed by candid band interviews, never-before-seen archive, animation, celebrity fan testimonials (Billy Bob Thornton, Joshua Homme and more), and an intimate performance at the legendary Gruene Hall shot exclusively for this documentary, That Little Ol' Band runs the gamut, from the absurd to the poignant, from squalid Texas bars to MTV heroics, all in celebration of this notoriously private, but larger than life, power trio. In the end, ZZ Top: That Little Ol' Band From Texas unravels the extraordinary tale of a band whose image we know, but whose story we don't."

Billy Gibbons expressed that even their loyal fans will expect surprises about what they'll learn about "those men behind the beards and cheap sunglasses". "There we are, up there on the silver screen and it's something we're delighted to share with fans of all stripes."
