Californian rockers BUCKCHERRY have set "Warpaint" as the title of their new album, tentatively due in early 2019. Helming the sessions is producer Mike Plotnikoff, who previously worked with the band on 2005's platinum-certified "15" record.
Singer Josh Todd has uploaded a short video message on his Facebook page in which he revealed that he just finished laying down his vocals to the new disc's title cut. "It was so fun. It's such a ripping track," he said. "I had a lot of fun doing it. I always come here super pumped up and I leave here just exhausted. So [I'm] ready to go home and chill for tomorrow's day. And we're gonna get another song called 'Closer'. 'Warpaint' record is gonna be sick."
Earlier this month, Todd told the 105.7 The Point radio station that BUCKCHERRY wrote 30 songs for the follow-up to 2015's "Rock 'N' Roll". "We've been writing songs since November of last year, and we really molded it into something really great," he said.
Asked how they whittle down so many songs to just a 10-track album, BUCKCHERRY guitarist Stevie Dacanay (a.k.a. Stevie D.) said: "You kind of know. When you [are writing] the songs, it kind of takes a life of its own, and you can really kind of feel it if it's working or not. And if it is working, then we pursue it; if not, we kind of put it to the side right away."
On the recent "Gen-X" summer tour with P.O.D., LIT and ALIEN ANT FARM, BUCKCHERRY was playing two new songs, "The Vacuum" and "Chaos Is The Ladder", both of which are expected to appear on the upcoming LP.
BUCKCHERRY's new disc will mark the band's first release since the departures of guitarist Keith Nelson and drummer Xavier Muriel and addition of Kevin Roentgen and Sean Winchester, respectively.
