It was recently announced that US southern rockers Black Stone Cherry had inked a record deal with the Mascot Label Group and there is now information available on what will be Black Stone Cherry's first album for their new musical home.
Named Kentucky, after the band's home state, the new Black Stone Cherry album will be released on the 1st of April 2016. The band have very much taken things back to their roots for this album, as singer and guitarist Chris Robertson explains:
“We are beyond excited to bring ‘Kentucky’ to you! Since the release of our debut we have wanted to go back to the studio where it all began and it finally happened! The original studio owner/engineer, all of the great equipment and Black Stone Cherry have been reunited for what I feel has been the most unique album we've ever made. We took it back to where it started and something magical happened! These new songs are the heart and soul of who we were in 2006 and who we've become. There is something very special about these songs and I cannot wait for y'all to feel them!”
The first song from Kentucky, titled The Way Of The Future, has already been released and is available for your listening pleasure at the bottom of this news item. BSC have also released an"in the studio" video clip, looking at their time creating Kentucky:
