BUCKCHERRY is currently in the midst of recording its sixth studio album and has posted two video diaries online that allow fans a glimpse into the group’s creative process. According to The Pulse Of Radio, the first video shows the band in the early stages of pre-production as they play the songs over and over in order to fine-tune them. In the second clip, called “Envy”, dissatisfaction over a song with that name leads to visible tension and frustration in the studio as the band tries to make the song work.
Singer Josh Todd tells the camera at one point, “There is always a song during our record making process that is a thorn in our side.”
When the group finally gets “Envy” to where they want it, Todd later says, “We hated this song for a while, now it’s fun.”
Todd and guitarist Keith Nelson are the band’s original members and have been working together for 17 years, but Todd told The Pulse Of Radio they still occasionally butt heads while making a record. “It’s not like what people would think, you know,” he said. “We’re not like, we don’t have to have like a shrink come in and talk to us, or we don’t need a mediator in the studio to get through writing a song. But yeah, you know, occasionally we’ll butt heads on like an issue, but it’s like we work stuff out so quickly. You know, Keith and I and everybody in BUCKCHERRY, we’re all focused on the outcome, which is we’re just trying to make the song the best it can be.”
BUCKCHERRY‘s new album will follow up 2010’s “All Night Long” and is said to possibly be a concept record.
The band will break from the studio later this month to begin a spring run of tour dates that will include both headlining gigs and festival appearances. The tour kicks off on April 21 in San Antonio.
