BUCKCHERRY To Release New Music Next SpringSeptember 12, 2022
California rockers BUCKCHERRY are planning to release new music in late spring 2023. The follow-up to last year's "Hellbound" will once again be helmed by producer and songwriter-for-hire Marti Frederiksen, who has previously collaborated with AEROSMITH, DEF LEPPARD, Jonny Lang and Sheryl Crow, among many others.
Earlier today, BUCKCHERRY shared the following message via social media: "Last night's show in Memphis closed out the North America Hellbound tour cycle and, while we are looking forward to The KISS Kruise, New Zealand/Australia with FOZZY and the 4 make up shows, the time has come to focus on Album #10!
"The Hellbound Tour began on June 1, 2021 and, after the AUS/NZ dates, will have encompassed 238 SHOWS!
"We want to thank our fans for their never ending support - You are the ones who make the live experience possible.
"Pre-production for the new album starts on the 20th and we anticipate new music the be released late spring of 2023. Stay tuned for updates and, as always, we look forward to seeing you at the Rock Show!"
Last month, BUCKCHERRY announced that singer Josh Todd and guitarist Stevie Dacanay (a.k.a. Stevie D.) will head to Nashville in late September to finish the writing process for the band's tenth studio album. The band will begin recording the effort on November 4.
Frederiksen previously produced "Hellbound" as well as BUCKCHERRY's fourth album, "Black Butterfly", and co-wrote "Sorry", among other songs, with the band.
"Hellbound" came out in June 2021 via Round Hill Records. The follow-up to 2019's "Warpaint" was recorded in the fall of 2020 in Nashville, Tennessee.
In the summer of 2020, BUCKCHERRY recruited JETBOY's Billy Rowe as its new guitarist. He joined the group as the replacement for Kevin Roentgen, who left BUCKCHERRY in July of that year.
In 2019, BUCKCHERRY enlisted Francis Ruiz as its new drummer. He joined the group as the replacement for Sean Winchester, who exited BUCKCHERRY after laying down the drum tracks on "Warpaint".
Earlier this year, Todd told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he and his bandmates have never had the luxury to slack off on their work habits, even during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
"When you're in a band, it's like it's your business. So if you just sit around and wait for people to tell you what to do, then you're not running a good business," Todd said. "We've always created opportunities within ourselves. We have to make schedules, we have to stick to them. We have to show up and work hard. We're so used to doing that because people have written this band off many times and we have many peaks and valleys in the BUCKCHERRY career. We have come back from a lot of adversity and had a lot of success. And we only did that by believing in ourselves and working hard because no one else is going to do that except us."
BUCKCHERRY burst on to the scene in 1999 with its now-classic self-titled debut album. Hit singles "Lit Up", "For The Movies", "Dead Again" and "Check Your Head" brought the celebration back to the party scene, recalling the gritty glam impact of MÖTLEY CRÜE but with a Gen X-demanded, modern self-awareness . Later albums continued to develop their reputation for volatile, mercurial themes and infectious hooks; such singles as "Crazy Bitch", "Everything", "Too Drunk" and "All Night Long" became screaming choruses for fans across the world. With their irreverent and bawdy lyrics, delivered with Todd's whisky weathered vocals, paired with filthy guitar riffs and high-energy, throbbing bass lines, BUCKCHERRY has sustained a hard-earned reputation as a not-to-be-missed live presence with regular touring schedules alongside such legends as MÖTLEY CRÜE and PAPA ROACH.
