Black Stone Cherry will be releasing an EP of blues covers titled “Black to Blues” on September 29.

You can also find a teaser for the release, which also features tracks from Muddy Waters, Freddie King and Albert King, below:

Chris Robertson commented:

“I know it’s crazy for four rock ‘n’ roll dudes to make a blues EP, but it’s us sharing with everyone the music that’s been our DNA from day one. The blues is such honest music. When you hear it, it’s, like, ‘I’m down on my luck, and, damn, that guy gets just how I feel’. I hope by sharing this music we have the beautiful opportunity to expose a new generation to the blues. It was humbling and freeing at the same time. It reignited our passion for this music, and it will definitely have an effect on our next album.”

“Black to Blues” Track Listing:

01. “Built for Comfort”
02. “Champagne & Reefer”
03. “Palace of the King”
04. “Hoochie Coochie Man”
05. “Born Under a Bad Sign”
06. “I Want to Be Loved”

Black Stone Cherry Premiere “Cheaper To Drink Alone” Music Video

Black Stone Cherry have premiered a new video for their song “Cheaper To Drink Alone,” via Loudwire. This song is from the band’s latest album, “Kentucky,” which is available now.

The band commented:

“This video is the first time we have stepped outside of our comfort zone, only to end up further into our comfort zone,” commented Black Stone Cherry. “It’s funny, it’s light hearted, it’s rock ‘n’ roll. It shows a side of the band that exists on a daily basis, and that is our love for ridiculous humor and not taking ourselves too seriously. We hope y’all enjoy it as much as we did creating it! We are also honored to have appearances of our friends from Number JUAN Tequila, Against The Grain Brewery, and Lzzy and Joe from our long time buddies, Halestorm.”

Black Stone Cherry Premiere “The Rambler” Music Video

Black Stone Cherry have premiered a new video for their song “The Rambler.” This song is from the band’s latest album, Kentucky, which is available now.

The band said the following:

“‘The Rambler’ has been an incredibly special song to us from the beginning and we knew the video had to be equally as special, but not too over dramatic. Simple and effective.

“We are honored to have Billy Ray Cyrus as The Rambler in the video, as well as the many amazing actors and team it took to make this story come to life. We hope this special song and video hits a chord with you like it has for us.”

Concert Review: Volbeat, Black Stone Cherry, & Monster Truck In Modesto, CA

Last night (April 18), I attended the Volbeat, Black Stone Cherry, and Monster Truck show in Modesto, CA, and it was one awesome show.

Monster Truck kicked off the show with a cool set. They opened with their track “Don’t Tell Me How to Live,” and just kept on rocking from there. The band got the crowd going right away, and were a solid opening act. A highlight from the set was their performance of “Sweet Mountain River.”

Black Stone Cherry took the stage next with a high energy set, which began with “Me And Mary Jane.” Chris Robertson’s vocals were on point, and Ben Wells was all over the stage with his masterful guitar work. As far as the set goes, it was heavily weighted in new songs like “In Our Dreams,” “Soul Machine,” and “Rescue Me,” from the band’s latest album, “Kentucky,” but the highlights were tracks like “White Trash Millionaire,” and “Blame It On The Boom Boom.” The band wrapped up with “Lonely Train,” followed by “30 Seconds Of Death Metal.”

Then it was time for Volbeat, and they definetly put on one hell of a show. The band started off with “Doc Holiday,” before rocking “Hallelujah Goat,” and “Radio Girl.” Frontman Michael Poulsen’s rockabilly style vocals sounded amazing over Rob Caggiano’s (ex-Anthrax) shredding guitar and Jon Larsen’s thunderous drumming. The crowd was going insane all night, as the band cranked out hit after hit. They played 19 songs in total, including four encore tracks, and a medley, which mixed together “Heaven Nor Hell,” “A Warriors Call,” and “I Only Wanna Be With You.” The highlights from their set were their performances of “Sad Man’s Tongue,” “Pool Of Booze, Booze, Booza,” “Lola Montez,” “16 Dollars,” and their finale “Still Conting.”
