Albums Of The Week: Buckcherry | Vol. 10

The L.A. rockers add a dash of Nashville twang to their Sunset Strip sleaze-rock.

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE:Buckcherry’s fitting titled 10th album Vol. 10 features 10 new originals and, as a bonus track, a cover of the Bryan Adams classic Summer Of ’69. The album was produced by Marti Frederiksen (Aerosmith, Ozzy Osbourne, Mötley Crüe) and recorded at Sienna Studios in Nashville.

Vol. 10 positions frontman Josh Todd’s distinctive rock roar as the centrepiece to a tracklisting that features a tantalising sour mash of the album’s Nashville birthplace. From the enticing, bluesy one-two punch of opener This And That and the free-spirit energy of Good Time, right down to the scar-bearing vulnerability of Pain, Vol. 10 is a hefty hunk of heart and soul wrapped up in Buckcherry’s celebrated mastery of raucous riffs, lighter-toting choruses and intoxicating rock ‘n’ roll energy.

Vol. 10 is our tenth record,” Todd notes. “Not too many bands get to hit that mark, and we take it very seriously by pouring our heart and souls into this effort. We laboured over the songwriting to give the listener a profound rock ’n’ roll experience and make this record unforgettable.”

The album’s first single Good Time arrived with a video directed by Tom Flynn and Mike Watts, shot in Los Angeles. Todd expands on the inspiration behind the track: “I really try to live my life one day at a time, stay in gratitude and make sure I’m aware of always focusing on the good in life. Good Time is a song that reflects that and illustrates the exact spirit of what makes Buckcherry so special live.”

The band’s previous album Hellbound was their highest-charting release, landing at No. 30 in the U.K. chart and garnering unprecedented radio support with multiple singles like the title track, 5,4,3,2,1 and Barricade.”
