During a recent interview with Rock 108, Buckcherry’s Josh Todd confirmed that the band have been using their coronavirus downtime to work on a new album. According to him, the group will be recording the effort at the end of this month.
Todd said the following:
“We had to do a lot of gear shifting, like everybody. We’ve done already over a handful of shows this year, but it’s not enough when this is your livelihood. So it’s been challenging — I can’t say that it’s been easy — but we shifted gears into making a new record, because, basically, this year was a wash; we were going to be touring a lot this year. The good news is we made a really great new BUCKCHERRY record. After we do these three shows [this month], we go in end of October. We’re flying to Nashville — we’re gonna do it in Nashville. And then we’ll be done with that. And then it all is a waiting game until we figure out, after the elections and what’s going on, what’s gonna happen with live entertainment. But once we figure that all out, we have a great new record, and we’ll be touring all next year, hopefully.”
He also added the following when asked about release plans:
“That’s the big question. It has a lot to do about us getting out there to promote it. We don’t wanna drop a record and not be able to get onstage and start playing. So it all depends. I’m thinking maybe early summer release, possibly. But you never know what’s gonna happen. The good news is that we did our due diligence. We wrote 27 songs for a 10-song record, and, man, we put in the work. And it’s really good. I can’t wait for people to hear it. But it’s all about, ‘Okay, when is the timing gonna be right?’ Because I’m sure every artist out there is gonna be releasing music next year, because everybody’s just been sitting around.”
