BUCKCHERRY were the featured guests on US nationally syndicated radio show Rockline with host Bob Coburn on February 18th. A replay of the show is now available at this location.
Buckcherry's sixth album, Confessions, was released on February 19th via Century Media Records. To celebrate the release, the band will headline three intimate hometown shows at The Viper Room in West Hollywood on March 7th, 8th and 9th. A limited number of tickets are still available at this location.
“The Viper Room is where it all began for us,” says Josh Todd. “At one point when we would hit the stage in that small club, the crowd sounded like an arena. It was so explosive that we landed a record deal and now 15 years later we're coming back to do it all again.”
The Confessions album cover (pictured below) features a very ornate looking book with two clasps to hold it shut. Singer Josh Todd told BraveWords recently, “It’s an old, old bible that we found online actually; we just kind of recreated it. The actual cover (pictured below) is on the inside of that. We had this guy Ewok, who’s a really well-known, graffiti-type artist from New York, who’s never done a rock band before, and he did drawings for all the sins as well as the cover; it’s really good.”
Speaking of sin, Confessions is a thematic record about The Seven Deadly Sins, but not really a pure concept album. “No, it’s still a rock ‘n roll record, it’s still a Buckcherry record. We always wanted to do a record around the sins, a few other bands have done their take on it and we just wanted to do our take on it. As a lyric writer, it was really challenging, fun, and a lot of hard work. I’m so proud of songs like ‘Pride’ and ‘Greed’, and ‘Gluttony’ of course. I just felt like, when I look back at all this, I’m going to be pleased.”
