Buckcherry Announce New Album ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll,’ Debut First Single ‘Bring It On Back’
Buckcherry have just announced that they are unleashing their seventh studio album, Rock ‘n’ Roll, on Aug. 21. To get fans hyped up for their upcoming disc, the group has also debuted the first single/video from the effort. It’s called “Bring It On Back” and you can watch it above.
Naming an album after an entire genre of music is pretty ballsy, as it sets the bar high for the group. In a press release, Buckcherry vocalist Josh Todd talks about the title: “There’s been so much talk about how rock ‘n’ roll is dead and all of this bullsh-t. 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.” Rock ‘n’ Roll will consist of 10 tracks, starting with the single and including a song called "Tight Pants." Check out the full track list below.
Todd also discussed his inspiration for their first single, and it might surprise you. “When I’m not on the road, I race Go Karts for my hobby,” he revealed. “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.” Maybe that's why the video is set on the open road and features the musicians driving in hotrod cars and on motorcycles.
