Buckcherry’s New Album, ‘Confessions,’ Out Today
Buckcherry’s new Confessions CD is available now via Century Media Records. Confessions is also streaming online today at AOL’s Noisecreep.com. Check out the album premiere at: www.noisecreep.com/2013/02/19/buckcherry-confessions-album-premiere/.
To celebrate the release of their new album, multi-platinum Los Angeles rock band Buckcherry — Josh Todd (vocals), Keith Nelson (guitar), Stevie D. (guitar), Jimmy Ashhurst (bass) and Xavier Muriel (drums) — will headline three intimate hometown shows at The Viper Room in West Hollywood on March 7, 8 and 9. A limited number of tickets are still available at http://viperroom.com.
“The Viper Room is where it all began for us,” Todd says. “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.”
Confessions is Buckcherry’s sixth studio album and first US release for Century Media Records. It was produced by Keith Nelson and Marti Frederiksen (Aerosmith, Ozzy Osbourne) and features eclectic CD artwork by graffiti artist Ewok. The songs on Confessions merge punk grit, gutter attitude, honest storytelling, and razor sharp hooks, while the lyrics are tied together by the underlying theme of the Seven Deadly Sins.
In a recent interview with Loudwire.com, Todd elaborated on the album’s subject matter: “There was a point in my life when I was a youth when I lost a family member and I acted out in my grieving process through the deadly sins, so that’s kind of what the story’s about on the record. I think the seven sins are timeless and that everybody struggles with them in their daily lives all the time.”
The album’s first single, “Gluttony,” is impacting Active Rock in the US and Top 5 at Active Rock in Canada. The provocative video for “Gluttony” — directed by Billy Jayne and filmed in a North Hollywood church — can be seen here:
A two-disc deluxe version of Confessions is available and features the bonus tracks “Give ‘Em What They Want” and “When The Fire Starts.” A bonus DVD includes the “Gluttony” music video and lyric video, behind-the-scenes footage and band interviews from the set of the “Gluttony” video shoot, and “The Story Behind Confessions” featurette. Confessions will be released on vinyl in April.
The track listing for Confessions is as follows:
