On January 16, Jason Saulnier of the MusicLegends.ca web site conducted an interview with guitarist Keith Nelson of Californian rockers BUCKCHERRY. You can now listen to the chat in the YouTube clip below.
“Confessions”, the sixth studio album from BUCKCHERRY, is due on February 13. The disc will be BUCKCHERRY‘s first domestic release with new label Century Media Records. The CD will be made available via Eleven Seven Music in other parts of the world.
The “Gluttony” video can be seen below. The clip was shot in November in Los Angeles, with the band putting out an open casting call for fans to appear in the video.
“It’s just about trying to control your behavior,” Todd told Loudwire about “Gluttony”. “They always say that you have to do everything in moderation and that’s never been my experience. One is okay, two is better, three is fantastic and four is the best. I want to consume everything, I want to go big or go home. I’m either on 11 or I’m asleep.”
He continued: “That’s my problem, that’s my struggle, trying to moderate — that’s what ‘Gluttony’ is about. It’s like, ‘I want it, I need it, I love it’ and everything that feels good to me, I want to overdo it. It’s just who I am and I don’t understand why I can’t do it.”
“Confessions” is a loose concept album that revolves around the notion of the seven deadly sins and is inspired by events in Todd‘s childhood.
Todd has helped co-write a short film that will come out later in the year and expand upon the record’s themes. It’s not clear yet how the film will be distributed.
Todd said that “Confessions” is “definitely a heavier, musically, record than we’ve ever had, and more melodic. It’s pretty intense, but everybody’s gonna love it. It’s quintessential BUCKCHERRY at the end of the day.”
The band will join KID ROCK as special guests on his upcoming “Rebel Soul” tour, beginning February 2 in Kansas City, Missouri.
