Kentucky Hard Rock band Black Stone Cherry have released another taster of their eighth studio album, Screamin’ At The Sky with the title track and an accompanying lyric video. The album is set for release on Friday September 29th, 2023 via Mascot Records. It will be available on white solid vinyl, a limited edition deluxe vinyl boxset, CD and digital formats.
BSC frontman/guitarist Chris Robertson explains the new album’s opening song as follows:
Much like most BSC songs, the music was written first and it set the tempo. We envisioned standing around a bonfire and just letting go of everything, throwing your problems into the cosmos and letting them be what they are. It starts the album off exactly how we wanted, right off the bat, in your face.
The Kentucky-based band, features Chris Robertson (lead vox/guitar), Ben Wells (guitar/background vocals), drummer John-Fred Young (drums/background vocals) and ‘new’ bassist, Steve Jewell Jr. (ex-Otis). In recent months, the band has presented two other tracks from Screamin’ At The Sky. You can watch the videos for “Nervous” here and “Out of Pocket” here.
The new album features all-new material written collaboratively while on tour, but when it came time to record, BSC decided to try something it’s always dreamed of doing: tracking an album at The Plaza Theater in Glasgow, Kentucky, a legendary 1020-seat venue built in 1934 that boasts meticulous acoustics.
