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.”
During a recent interview with Kerrang!, The Ghost Inside’s Jim Riley was asked if fans can expect to hear new music from the band before their two European/UK shows next year. He responded by simply saying “yes.”
Riley also had the following to say about the band’s new album process:
“The biggest difference is the emphasis on collaboration. This is the first record without [former lead guitarist and co-founder] Aaron Brooks, and first with Chris Davis. Aaron was the main guy to put the ideas together before, and we’re doing it much more as a group on this one. There’s also a freedom now to explore the TGI sound in any way we want. We are so far removed – almost six years – from the ‘Dear Youth‘ process, and the band has grown so much as individuals and as a collective that we bring a lot of new things to the table.”
“Will was our first choice producer for this project, and we always wanted to have Jeremy involved as well. We are very lucky that we don’t have a deadline and have been able to work around their schedules. Epitaph have been incredibly supportive on this as well, understanding that making the record was going to be a little non-traditional, but if the results are as good as we are hoping it will all have been worth it.”

Sevendust have been in the studio working on their new album, but it looks like fans will have to wait a little while to hear it. During a recent interview with Wisconsin’s Razor 94.7/104.7, guitarist Clint Lowery revealed that the band are planning to release the effort in summer 2020.
Lowery said the following:
“I’m actually done. I just finished my last thing a few days ago and Lajon has like one more song to sing. And then I’ll be sending a couple things, like last minute things but we’re pretty much wrapped on that thing.
We’re gonna sit on it for a while, we may record a little bit more in the Spring but I think we’re done. And I’m really pumped up about it. I think it’s gonna be killer.
Sevendust will come out summer of 2020 so I’ll have a little bit of a hole to do my thing for a while. Sevendust needs to go away for a little bit; we can’t just stay out. And I think everyone understands that. So it’ll be good to give that a break, so we can come back recharged for that.”
Despite the wait, fans will still get to hear new music from Lowery when he releases his new solo album “God Bless The Renegades” on January 31.
Corey Taylor (Slipknot, Stone Sour) previously said he was “giving serious thought to doing a solo album” in 2021 and now the singer has offered a new update on the project. He said the following during an interview with WhatCulture:
“…It’s been cool to kind of start building the momentum for a potential solo run… It’s definitely going to be rock-based, but it’s going to be rock meets so many different things. There will be harder-edged stuff, but there also will be big, expansive, huge, world-changing guitar songs that you’re going to want to sing along to. That’s just who I am, and I’m not going to fight who I am. I’ve got 26 songs written, and I’m not done yet.”
