Buckcherry’s Josh Todd on New Album: ‘It’s Quintessential Buckcherry’

Los Angeles-based hard rock act Buckcherry will release their latest full-length, “Confessions,” in September, and lead vocalist Josh Todd says the album starts a new chapter in the Buckcherry chronicles. “It’s gonna be a little bit different [than our previous albums],” he told Oklahoma rock station Z94. “It’s definitely a heavier, musically, record than we’ve ever had, and more melodic. It’s pretty intense, but everybody’s gonna love it — it’s quintessential Buckcherry at the end of the day. But we have all those peaks and valleys. That’s what we want on all our records — dynamics — and I think people are gonna dig it.”

At the end of the day, Buckcherry are a rock and roll band, and Todd says the guys know that. So, don’t expect anything too crazy-different on the new set. “ …These are the type of records that we wanna listen to, so that’s what we wanna create,” he said. “We don’t wanna make it hard for the listener to figure it all out; that’s just a drag. I hate it when I get records that I’m just like, ‘I don’t get it. I don’t understand what they’re doing here.’ We don’t want that. We want it to be really easy to remember, but have substance and all of that, and it’s tricky. That art of doing that is you have to write a lot of songs.”

Todd also dropped the news that the guys are planning to film a short movie to be released in conjunction with the new CD. “[It’s] really cool [and] that’s something we’re really looking forward to,”” Todd said. “We’re still working on all the details of that, but the plan is, hopefully, to release it at small film festivals and do shows around those film festivals as well, and perform the record in its entirety.

“Because the record is really the soundtrack to the movie. I wrote the screenplay to the movie, and it’s based around the seven sins and true events that happened in my life as well, when I was younger. So I think it’s gonna be a real treat for people who love this band and people who are just discovering Buckcherry for the first time.” (Photo credit: Anne Erickson.)
