BUCKCHERRY Guitarist: 'I'm Stoked On The New Stuff!'

BUCKCHERRY guitarist Keith Nelson has issued the following update:

"This is the first entry in the studio blog for the upcoming record.

"We came off the road at the end of September and took a few days off, then got right back to work writing and rehearsing new material. Right now things are going well; we've got five songs completed as full demo recordings, another four or five songs that have been written completely, and a boatload of great ideas we're trying to finish.

"I'm stoked on the new stuff! We got off to a slow start for us; I think we're were all so used to being in a tour bus that it took us a while to settle in.

"Oh.. and X and I had to ride our choppers from Florida to L.A. with a few friends to blow out the cobwebs, and get in the right frame of mind for the long studio hours.

"JT's [singer Josh Todd] been spending some quality time in the boxing gym, Stevie's [Stevie D., guitar] been decorating his new pad, and Jimmy [Ashhurst, abss] is impeccably dressed, as usual. But... we are definitely deep in it now, and this past week has produced what may be the most ass-kicking songs we've ever written. I'm really looking forward to playing this stuff live, and I really can't wait for you guys to hear this stuff!!!

"Anyway, I'll have more specifics later on the songs, maybe a few titles, and we'll keep ya posted as to when we actually start the record. More and this and other useless info soon to follow."

BUCKCHERRY has announced its milestone 300th live show in support of its most recent album, "15", slated for December 15 at Las Vegas' House of Blues. The concert marks the end of an amazing year for the band — "15" has proven a triumph, spending a remarkable 82 weeks on the Billboard 200 on its way towards RIAA platinum certification for sales above 1 million units. "Sorry", the fifth and most recent single, is currently ascending the top 25 at Hot AC outlets nationwide, and the album's first blockbuster hit single, "Crazy Bitch", earned the band a 2007 Grammy Awards nomination in the "Best Hard Rock Performance" category. In addition, "Crazy Bitch" recently celebrated a full year in the Nielsen Ringscan Top 30 — the only track to do so in the chart's history. "Crazy Bitch" has been certified as a Platinum Master Ringtone by the RIAA.

On November 20, the band released an MVI edition of "15", a PC/MAC-compatible DVD which features full album audio, downloadable files for every song, previously unreleased live tracks (including "Everything", "Next 2 You", and "Crazy Bitch"), videos, an exclusive photo gallery, complete lyrics, U-Myx (which allows fans to create their own custom remixes of "Crazy Bitch" and "Everything"), plus a variety of digital extras (such as ringtones, screen savers, buddy icons, and wallpapers). In addition, fans who register their "15" MVI can unlock future content as it becomes available.
