Platinum-Certified Hard Rockers Buckcherry Announce New Album, 'Black Butterfly'

July 21st, 2008 8:00pm EDT
BuckcherryEleven Seven Music/Atlantic recording group Buckcherry has announced early details of its hugely anticipated fourth album, Black Butterfly. The album – which follows 2006's RIAA platinum-certified blockbuster, 15 – arrives in stores at all digital retailers on September 16th.

"Too Drunk…," a featured track from Black Butterfly, recently appeared online at a number of BitTorrent sites. Buckcherry has released an official statement regarding the song's unscheduled arrival, declaring, "Honestly, we hate it when this shit happens, because we want our FANS to have any new songs first."

In response to the leak, the band quickly cut "a down and dirty video" for "Too Drunk…" which can be viewed on www.Buckcherry.com. With its sexy, slinky groove, "Too Drunk…" offers a new facet to Buckcherry's trademark hard-rocking sonic approach. "I just wanted something that was funky," notes lead singer Josh Todd, "so we all collaborated on it and turned it into something with a lot of space to breeze along and tell a story."

Black Butterfly is now available for preorder via www.Buckcherry.com. Fans who preorder the Limited Edition Fan Pack will receive the track "Too Drunk…" at the time of their preorder. The ringtone for the track is also available on the band's website. The album – co-produced by longtime Aerosmith collaborator Marti Frederiksen (the co-writer of Buckcherry's top 10 smash, "Sorry") and Buckcherry's own Keith Nelson – will be offered in a standard CD package; a "Limited Fan Club Edition" version, which comes with bonus tracks and a one-year membership to the Buckcherry Fan Club; and a "Limited Fan Club Edition" bundle which adds a Black Butterfly T-shirt to the previous package.

The newly updated www.Buckcherry.com also features the Black Butterfly album art, as well as links and information regarding the band's current role in this summer's "Crüe Fest." The just-underway North American tour sees Buckcherry lighting up stages all summer long as part of a multi-artist bill which also includes Mötley Crüe, Papa Roach, SIXX: A.M., and Trapt.

True road warriors, Buckcherry will follow "Crüe Fest" with a full-scale co-headline tour alongside Avenged Sevenfold, slated to kick off in mid-September, running through the beginning of October.

Buckcherry was featured in a recent Billboard cover story which declared the Los Angeles-based band to be "a platinum-plated redemption story, years in the making." Powered by four enormously successful multi-format hit singles, 15 firmly established Buckcherry's status as America's preeminent hard rock outfit. "Crazy Bitch" – the album's Grammy Award-nominated first single – caused a radio riot upon its 2006 release, reaching #2 at Mainstream Rock and #3 at Active Rock. A string of further rock and alternative radio hits followed, including "Next 2 You,""Everything," and the CHR/Top 40 crossover smash, "Sorry." The singles have all blown up online, with cumulative digital sales now approaching 1 million. In addition, "Crazy Bitch" spent over a year in the Nielsen Ringscan Top 30 – the only track to do so in the chart's history. The track has since been certified as a Platinum Master Ringtone by the RIAA.

What's more, Buckcherry spent nearly two full years on the road, performing more than 300 live shows in support of 15. A full-scale headline tour behind Black Butterfly will be announced shortly.
