California rockers BUCKCHERRY have released “Gluttony” as the official first single from the band’s upcoming sixth studio album, “Confessions”. The disc, due out on February 13, is a loose concept album that revolves around the notion of the seven deadly sins and is inspired by events in singer Josh Todd‘s childhood. The vocalist told The Pulse Of Radio how “Gluttony” fits into this. “Seven of the songs on the record are the seven sins, so ‘Gluttony’, you know, it’s just about over-consuming everything in your life, you know, and just being a glutton,” he said. “And it’s got a great hook and I really love the lyrics and everybody likes the song.”
Todd has helped co-write a short film that will come out around the same time as the album and expand upon the record’s themes. It’s not clear yet how the film will be distributed. BUCKCHERRY did do some sort of video shoot last month in Los Angeles for an unspecified song from the album, putting out an open casting call for fans to appear in the clip.
“Confessions” 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.
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.
