Los Angeles’ notorious,
multi-platinum-selling rock band, Buckcherry,
will release their 7th studio album, Rock ‘n’ Roll, on August
21st via F-Bomb Records/Caroline. In anticipation for the upcoming record,
the band has premiered a new track/video for their first single, “Bring It On
Back,” today at http://vevo.ly/qREEKc.
On their Rock ‘n’ Roll, the Los Angeles quintet—Josh
Todd [vocals], Keith Nelson [guitar], Stevie D. [guitar], Xavier Muriel [drums],
and Kelly LeMieux [bass]—staunchly uphold the commandments of rock music with an
arsenal of new anthems primed to explode on impact and teeming with riotous
energy, sexy swagger, and primal chops intact.
It’s something that the boys
have done since day one, but it’s more necessary now than ever.
“There’s been so much talk about how rock ‘n’ roll is dead and
all of this bullshit,” says Todd. “The funny thing is, that’s been going on
since we put out our first record in 1999. We wanted to call the new album
Rock ‘n’ Roll, because this is what we’ve been doing our whole lives. We
focused on making a record that encompasses all of what we are. You get every
flavor of Buckcherry.”
They rev up Rock ‘n’ Roll with the propulsive first
single and opener “Bring It On Back.” From the jump, a robust guitar groove
struts right alongside an unshakable refrain.
It’s got the band’s signature
hallmarks, but Todd pulled lyrical inspiration from a new source altogether.
“When I’m not on the road, I race Go Karts for my hobby,” he says. “The song is
really about racing. I had a driver named Kurt Busch in mind when I wrote the
lyrics. They call him ‘The Outlaw,’ and he’s a badass. It captures that
intensity of racing and the mentality. I love it.”
“Bring It On Back” is an immediate reminder that rock ‘n’ roll
is alive and thriving in 2015. Buckcherry have added fuel to the genre’s fire
for nearly two decades now.
The Grammy Award-nominated outfit is responsible for
smashes including “Lit Up” off
their gold-certified 1999 self-titled debut as well as “Crazy Bitch”
and “Sorry” from
2006’s platinum 15. Along the way, they’ve shared stages with everybody
from AC/DC and Mötley Crüe to Slipknot and Rob Zombie, among others.
Fans can catch Buckcherry live in concert this summer on their
North American tour. Additional tour dates for July – September will be
announced soon. Follow the band at https://www.facebook.com/buckcherry
