Buckcherry to Join Alice In Chains at The Chip
With their first new album in four years, Fifteen, debuting on the Billboard Top 200 charts at 43, Buckcherry is ready for their return to the live rock scene. They will play at the Legendary Buffalo Chip on Friday, Aug. 11, 2006 with Alice In Chains.
Guitarist Keith Nelson says the new music "fills a void for classic rock with a modern edge."
The raucous "Crazy Bitch" is catching commercial radio by storm. The single is the #1 most-added song at both the Active and Mainstream radio formats," according to Jive Magazine.
The L.A.-based band broke onto the national scene in 1999 with their critically acclaimed self-titled debut album, produced by Terry Date and Sex Pistol Steve Jones for DreamWorks Records.
They scored with such hit Modern Rock singles as "Lit Up," "Check Your Head" and "For The Movies", and quickly ignited a following of passionate fans craving a return of true rock and roll. "Coming on like the Black Crowes by way of AC/DC," Entertainment Weekly raved, "this L.A.-based band is at its best blasting its way through hard-hitting riff rockers."
Also booked for this year's Sturgis Motorcycle Rally at the Legendary Buffalo Chip are: Alice Cooper, Montgomery Gentry, George Thorogood, Gretchen Wilson, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Kid Rock, Blue Oyster Cult, The James Gang with Joe Walsh, Ted Nugent and Alice in Chains. Campground owner Rod Woodruff said more announcements are forthcoming.
