BLACK STONE CHERRY Announces 18-Date U.S. Tour

BLACK STONE CHERRY Announces 18-Date U.S. Tour

With their new single, "Cheaper To Drink Alone", impacting rock radio early next month, Kentucky rockers BLACK STONE CHERRY have announced that, in addition to the previously announced winter tour dates in the Midwest and Northeast, they are hitting the road in May for an 18-date U.S. tour in support of their latest album, "Kentucky", out now via Mascot Label Group. Beginning in Houston, Texas before routing up the West Coast and into the Midwest, the tour will be supported by CITIZEN ZERO and LETTERS FROM THE FIRE and include festival stops at San Antonio, Texas's River City Rockfest, Pryor, Oklahoma's Rocklahoma, Sioux City, Iowa's Awesome Biker Nights, and Earlville, Iowa's Tri State Speedway.

BLACK STONE CHERRY commented: "After a nice break, we are so excited to get back on the road and kick some serious ass! It's been a while since we've set out on a coast-to-coast U.S. headline tour and we expect this to be the best yet!

"We are a live band. We are bringing our A game and promise to leave it all on the stage every night. You deserve nothing less. Rock music deserves nothing less. We want you to experience with us what we guarantee will be a rejuvenating night of music and passion on this tour! Don't miss it!"

Nearly a decade ago, BLACK STONE CHERRY made its attention-grabbing self-titled debut at Barrick Recording Studio near their hometown of Edmonton, Kentucky. It proclaimed the arrival of a vibrant and exciting new force in southern rock 'n' roll, a group that played with fire, sang with brimstone and had plenty of cajones. Flash forward nine years, the band's latest album, "Kentucky", is very much a "back-to-their-roots" affair, with the four-piece working with the same engineer in the same local studio, Barrick Recording, where they crafted their eponymous debut.

The band has developed an enormous following, touring six continents, headlining festivals, topping the charts, and sharing the stage with DEF LEPPARD, BAD COMPANY, LYNYRD SKYNYRD, ALTER BRIDGE, HALESTORM, SHINEDOWN, THEORY OF A DEADMAN, and more.
