KILLROCKSTAR & SOUNDWORKS PRESENTS BUCKCHERRY Australian & New Zealand Tour 2016
One of rock’s great bands, Buckcherry will return to Australia and New Zealand this March. Led by Josh Todd, a man who personifies rock n roll and anchored by guitarists Keith Nelson and Stevie D, drummer Xavier Muriel and bassist Kelly Lemieux, Buckcherry will deliver a night of straight up good time rock and roll.
It’s going to be loud, it’s going to be sweaty, it’s going to be awesome!
Buckcherry have released seven full length albums of pure, unbridled rock since forming in 1995. Their latest, simply titled Rock N Roll sums up the bands ethos perfectly. Rock and roll should make you want to do a few things, says Keith Nelson, “It should make you want to drive fast, fuck and dance”
And that it does, Buckcherry uphold the unwritten commandments of rock music: Riotous energy, sexy swagger, primal chops and a lifestyle that can’t be switched off. They know no other way.
From their self titled debut album way back in 1999 which delivered unto the world anthems such as Lit Up and Dead Again, to 2006’s 15 which featured Crazy Bitch and Sorry, to the infamous Fuck EP (where each song had everyones favourite F word in its title), and included the live staple Say Fuck It, Buckcherry have the songs to make you move. And on album number seven, opening track Bring It On Back has the riffs and refrain of another Buckcherry classic.
Buckcherry will hit town soon.. oh yeah, you want it.
