BUCKCHERRY Frontman Interviewed On WRIF 101.1 FM

Meltdown of Detroit, Michigan's WRIF 101.1 FM radio station recently conducted an interview with vocalist Josh Todd of California rockers BUCKCHERRY. You can now listen to the chat using the audio player below.

"All Night Long", the new album from BUCKCHERRY, sold around 28,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 10 on The Billboard 200 chart.

BUCKCHERRY's fourth studio album, titled "Black Butterfly", opened with around 47,000 units back in September 2008 to land at No. 8.

Even though "Black Butterfly" did not sell much compared to the band's 2006's million-selling comeback effort, "15", guitarist Keith Nelson told The Pulse of Radio that he is not giving up on making albums. "I believe in the album as an artform," he said. "I don't think that putting two songs that are gonna be played on the radio and then a bunch of filler stuff — that's not why we do this. But I have lost faith in the number of records sold as an indicator of success, because our audience is growing, our business is growing. Nothing has receded, except the actual number of physical records that are sold. So I don't think that's a true indication of our success."

BUCKCHERRY recently teamed with the Natural Resources Defense Council to send all the proceeds from sales of their new song "Our World" to the NRDC's Gulf Recovery Fund.

A new version of the song, which was taken from "All Night Long", was made available for purchase as an iTunes exclusive. All the proceeds are going directly to Gulf Coast non-profit groups working to help people, wildlife and fragile ecosystems recover from the BP disaster.
