On February 19, Californian rockers BUCKCHERRY performed a special acoustic set for Tampa Bay, Florida radio station 98 Rock at the RP Funding Performance Theater. Check out footage of the song "Bliss", "Sorry", "Everything", "Truth" and "Rose" below.
BUCKCHERRY's sixth studio album, "Confessions", is likely to sell between 12,000 and 15,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to industry web site Hits Daily Double. The estimate was based on one-day sales reports compiled after the record arrived in stores on February 19 via Century Media Records.
BUCKCHERRY's previous CD, "All Night Long", opened with around 28,000 copies in August 2010 to land at position No. 10 on The Billboard 200 chart.
The band's fourth studio effort, titled "Black Butterfly", premiered with around 47,000 copies back in September 2008 to enter the chart at No. 8.
"Confessions" is a loose concept album that revolves around the notion of the seven deadly sins, while the lyrics were inspired by events in singer Josh Todd's childhood. Todd told The Pulse Of Radio why the seven sins made a good framework for the record. "Well, I've struggled with moderation my whole life, you know, so the sins have been prevalent in my life as far back as I can remember," he said. "So it's something that I'm always struggling with, and I think everybody does to some degree at some point. That's why they're unique and timeless and I think a lot of people can relate to them."
Todd has also written the script for a short film that will act as a companion piece to "Confessions", with the band hoping to shoot the movie later this year.
The first single from the album is called "Gluttony".
BUCKCHERRY is currently out as special guest of KID ROCK on his Rebel Soul tour, which stopped on Wednesday (February 20) in Pensacola, Florida.
The band will also play three hometown shows on March 7, March 8 and March 9 at the Viper Room in Los Angeles.
