It looks like Black Stone Cherry are planning to hit the studio this winter to work on their new album. Guitarist Ben Wells told MisplacedStraws.com the following:

“We got to do a new album so we’ll be in the studio winter time and then probably get back on the road in spring. We’ve hit this album cycle really hard. We’ve done Europe four times on it, we’ve been all over the U.S. and everywhere and got to go to Japan and Hawaii for the first time. It’s been great but it’s time to slow down for a minute and crank out another album.”

“John Fred had the absolute honor to meet Mr. Rush when The Kentucky Headhunters played with him at the Blues Aid Festival in Helena Arkansas. His kindness and larger than life his personality was encouraging and stuck. When we did the BTB2 album, we had the idea to cover “All Your Love”. The arrangement is true to the original but with our special BSC was touch. I think he would be proud to know his music is still inspiring younger generations. Hope ya’ll enjoy!”

To finally be able to go in the studio and actually record it was an incredible experience and we got to extend the live version and have a lot of fun. Son House is without a doubt one of the most haunting artists of all time, Blues or any genre, we can only hope we did the song and him justice!”
