BLACK STONE CHERRY: New Album Details Revealed

Roadrunner Records has set an August 19 release date for "Folklore and Superstition", the new album from Kentucky rockers BLACK STONE CHERRY.

The band, known for crafting blues-infused Southern rawk that sounds as good on the back porch as it does bellowing from Marshall stacks in a packed venue, named its sophomore effort after a distinct tradition from its native region: folklore, story telling and superstitions. "There is a mystique with folklore and superstition," says drummer John Fred Young. "We're intrigued by and interested in history, roots and heritage, and we incorporate that into the band." Bassist Jon Lawhon concurs, "We are taking the Southern tradition and spreading it out to the rest of the world. They say, 'Write what you know,' so that's what we're doing, writing what we know."

On "Folklore and Superstition", BLACK STONE CHERRY incorporates lyrical tales with upbeat riffing and atypical conventions like turkey calls, making it a record that is pleasing as it is unpredictable. The band recorded the album at Black Bird Studios, which is owned and operated by country artist Martina McBride, in Nashville, Tennessee. The album crackles with a down-home, feel good, rock 'n' roll current and was produced and mixed by veteran rock producer Bob Marlette (OZZY OSBOURNE, SALIVA, SEETHER, SHINEDOWN).

The track listing is as follows:

01. Blind Man
02. Please Come In
03. Reverend Wrinkle
04. Soul Creek
05. Things My Father Said
06. The Bitter End
07. Long Sleeves
08. Peace Is Free
09. Devil's Queen
10. The Key
11. You
12. Sunrise
13. Ghost of Floyd Collins

BLACK STONE CHERRY will embark on pre-release touring all summer long.
