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.”

“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.”

“To our amazing fans in Europe: We are incredibly sad to have to reschedule our November tour planned for mainland Europe. Again COVID issues have now made this an impossibility.

Travel issues coupled with capacity restrictions in some territories mean that we can no longer undertake the tour as planned. This will affect all shows between November 1st and 25th inclusive.

On a more positive note though, we have successfully rescheduled the entire tour for September and October next year and all tickets will remain valid for the new dates.

We really appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding as well as your continued support through these difficult times.

We’ll see you soon.”

The group also confirmed that their UK tour is still on:

“The UK tour next month is still happening! We only had to move the mainland Europe tour to 2022 because of more intensive travel restrictions.”
