2016 Preview: Black Stone Cherry
For fifth album Kentucky, their first for new record label Mascot, the southern rockers have gone back to the no-frills style that characterised their debut.
Southern rock revivalists Black Stone Cherry release their fifth album in April, and drummer John Fred Young promises it will be a back-to-basics style.
“That’s why we’re calling it Kentucky, after the state in which we live, because it’s a little more of a personal statement than our last couple of albums,” he explains.
Prior to playing at last summer’s Download festival, rhythm guitarist Ben Wells had told Classic Rock that the material the band were demoing was “very rocking stuff, more like our first album”, adding: “We’ve returned to the naïveté of when we first started out.”
