Buckcherry To Begin Recording New Album In November

Buckcherry are planning to begin the recording process for their new album on November 4. The band commented:

“Only NINE CHANCES LEFT to catch us on the 2022 Hellbound Tour!! While we look forward to The KISS Kruise, New Zealand and Australia in December, and a few make up shows before the end of 2022, after this week our focus shifts to the recording of album #10! Josh and Stevie head to Nashville in three weeks to finish the writing process with Marti Frederiksen and then recording begins November 4. But, before that, we we can’t wait to see you all on this final leg that includes two shows supporting Kid Rock as well as a performance at the Blue Ridge Rock Festival! See you at the Rock Show! ⚡🤘⚡”

Buckcherry Cancel/Postpone Several Shows After Josh Todd Tests Positive For COVID-19

Buckcherry frontman Josh Todd has tested positive for COVID-19. As a result, the band have been forced to cancel one show and postpone two others.

The group commented:

“TO THE FANS: Near the beginning of last night’s show in Riverside, Josh began to feel very ill on stage and realized he would be unable to complete the show. He returned to the bus and took a rapid COVID test which came back positive. While he is resting and taking care of himself, we, unfortunately, will not be able to perform with Tesla tonight at Thunder Valley Casino and have to postpone tomorrow’s show at Coach House in San Juan Capistrano and Tuesday’s show at the Rialto Theatre in Tucson.

Rest assured that Josh is doing alright and we’ll be back in action very soon. All Buckcherry VIP purchases for tonight’s canceled performance at Thunder Valley are being refunded. To those who had tickets to last night’s show in Riverside, as well as those in San Juan Capistrano & Tucson, please hold on to all tickets and VIP purchases and stay tuned for more info regarding rescheduled performances in late October.

We apologize for the inconvenience, but we will see you very soon!”

Buckcherry’s Josh Todd Became A Certified Phlebotomist During Lockdown

During a recent appearance on SiriusXM’s “Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk,” Buckcherry’s Josh Todd discussed how he spent his time during the coronavirus lockdown. Interestingly, the frontman revealed that he actually became a certified phlebotomist.

Todd said the following when asked how he spent his downtime:

“I got into action. I’m not one that really sits around for too long. I never get on the pity potty. I just go, ‘Okay, what am I gonna do with this time? I’ve got all this time. How can I utilize it wisely?’ And making the ‘Hellbound’ record [with BUCKCHERRY] was one of them. And as far as recovery, I’m always in it. So I did a lot of Zoom meetings in that time; a lot of recovery went to Zoom meetings. And I did a lot of Zoom meetings; I stayed in action. I did a lot of step work during that time to feel good in my head. And I picked up the game of tennis again; I played a lot of tennis, which was really good for my mental health. And a lot of things. I learned a new trade too. I became a certified phlebotomist during the lockdown, and I served L.A. County for four months out at a COVID clinic. So I did that as well, after the ‘Hellbound’ record was written. A lot of interesting things I did during the lockdown. But that was one of ’em. [It was] very interesting, and [I] learned a lot.”

He continued when asked how one goes about becoming a phlebotomist:

“I went to a two-week program where you stick and you get stuck a lot by students. And then you’ve gotta take a national exam, and I did that as well, and I passed that. And then you get out in the field and do your thing. And that’s what I did for, like I said, four months out in downtown L.A.; I worked at a COVID clinic. And it was interesting.

I’ve always been a worker — I’ve worked since I was 13 — so not working is not good for me. And I always became interested in it. I always go to Quest Diagnostics. I get my bloodwork annually there, because the best phlebotomists are there. I remember this one big, tall tattooed dude came out and drew my blood one time, and I literally didn’t even feel it; he was so good. And we started chatting, and I just became interested in it — a long time ago, way before the pandemic. And then I was just, like, ‘I’m gonna go learn this. I’m gonna learn it.’ And so I did it.”
