Here’s to the next two decades!”

Black Stone Cherry’s John Fred Young: “I Think Probably Next Year, Early Next Year, We’ll Have A New Record Out”

During a recent interview with Loud TV, Black Stone Cherry drummer John Fred Young offered an update on the band’s new album. According to him, the effort will likely surface “early next year.”

Young said the following:

“We started working on the new record this summer. And we’ve got about… I think there’s about eight songs right now that we had done, and we’re gonna go back in in December and finish up the rest. So [it’s] a really, really cool situation.

We’ve got our own theater back in Glasgow, Kentucky, where Ben [Wells] lives. We do our home shows there; we do it every two years at Christmas. So we recorded the drums in this big, beautiful theater. And they just sound incredible; even with me playing, they sound incredible. And we’re going to my house to do vocals and guitars. So, [it’s] really cool, man. I think people will really love the songs and the playing.

We recorded ‘The Human Condition’ in 2020, and when we were doing that, everything with COVID, it was really starting to rise up. And we got done with that record two days before our state locked us down. So we were lucky to get that done. It’s wild because we’re just now playing that record here in Paris and throughout Europe. But I think probably next year, early next year, we’ll have a new record out.”

He also added the following about the effort’s musical direction:

“The first seven or eight [songs] we had done are really… The lyrics on them are very heartfelt and great. The music is really heavy, but also there’s the BLACK STONE CHERRY ballad or two, so… I can’t give away too much [laughs], ’cause I don’t even know what the other ones sound like yet, ’cause we haven’t really finished those.”

Black Stone Cherry Have “Nine Songs Completely Written” For Their Next Album

During a recent appearance on “Rock Of Nations With Dave Kinchen & Shane McEachern,” Black Stone Cherry’s Chris Robertson offered an update on the band’s new album. According to him, the group already have “nine songs completely written” for the effort.

Robertson said the following

“We’ve got nine songs completely written and about seven more that we’ve gotta write lyrics and stuff to. But we’ve been at it, man. And it’s good. It’s heavy. It’s melodic. I think it’s gonna be a great record.”

“It’s crazy because the songs we write… Obviously we write songs that are fun — like ‘Blame It On The Boom Boom’ and ‘White Trash Millionaire’ — a lot of fun stuff, but we also write some more serious songs.

“It’s different, man. We’ve been writing and stuff. And it’s crazy. For me right now, the stuff that’s kind of coming out is a lot related to my dad passing, a lot of understanding how to deal with this loss and grief and just learning to live through it.”

“The serious songs we write are stuff that we’ve either witnessed or we’ve lived or whatever. Other than a song like ‘Rain Wizard’ or some of the stuff we wrote that was more folklory, everything we’ve written is something we’ve lived. So there’s a hell of a lot in the well now. I went a really long way of saying that, but the well is very deep now of things to write about.”

He also added the following about release plans:

“We [will be on the road in] Europe for all of September, and then we come back home. I think it’s the middle or end of October — somewhere around there — we go to Canada for about a month with Steel Panther, which will be awesome… [After that] we’re gonna try to finish up recording. Then hopefully sometime next year we can put out some new music.”

Drummer John-Fred Young also commented on the show:

“To be honest, I was terrified. It was heavy walking in there. You think about how many great acts have played this place. The prestige behind it. We’ve wanted to play the Royal Albert Hall since the first U.K. tour in 2007. Dudes from the middle of the country in Kentucky to go out here and have built an amazing group of people that we care about and come to our shows and support us. To know that with all that hard work and dedication we have put into Black Stone Cherry, we’ve accomplished something here. Walking in that place, it’s just breath-taking. You walk on that stage, and you say, we did it, and it’s a feeling that I will cherish for the rest of my life.”

Robertson added:

“We’ve headlined Wembley Arena, we’ve headlined festivals, but you walk into this place, and it’s different. I remember watching footage of Zeppelin here, and now we’re here.”

Black Stone Cherry Premiere “Ringin’ In My Head” Music Video

Black Stone Cherry have premiered a new video for their song “Ringin’ In My Head.” This track is from the band’s latest album “The Human Condition.” Frontman Chris Robertson commented:

“In 2020, when the world seemed to be falling apart, an older song we had started a few years earlier struck a nerve with us. Lyrically it seemed too close to the times not to try and make the song something special. The result is guaranteed to give you a ringin’ in your head.”
