With their new single “Cheaper To Drink Alone” impacting rock radio early next
month, Black Stone Cherry has announced that, in addition to the previously
announced Winter tour dates in the Midwest and Northeast, they are hitting the
road in May for an 19-date US tour in support of their latest album ‘Kentucky,’
out now via Mascot Label Group. Beginning in Houston, Texas before routing up
the West Coast and into the Midwest, the tour will be supported by Citizen
Zero and Letters from the Fire and include festival stops at San Antonio Texas’
River City Rockfest, Pryor, Oklahoma’s Rocklahoma, Sioux City, Iowa’s
Awesome Biker Nights, and Earlville, Iowa's Tri State Speedway.
Black Stone Cherry commented, "After a nice break, we are so excited to get
back on the road and kick some serious ass! It's been a while since we've set out
on a coast-to-coast US headline tour and we expect this to be the best yet! We
are a LIVE band. We are bringing our A Game and promise to leave it all on the
stage every night. You deserve nothing less. Rock music deserves nothing less.
We want you to experience with us what we guarantee will be a rejuvenating
night of music and passion on this tour! Don't miss it!"
Nearly a decade ago, Black Stone Cherry made its attention-grabbing self-titled
debut at Barrick Recording Studio near their hometown of Edmonton, KY. It
proclaimed the arrival of a vibrant and exciting new force in southern rock ‘n’
roll, a group that played with fire, sang with brimstone and had plenty of
cajones. Flash forward nine years, the band's latest album ‘Kentucky’ is very
much a ‘back to their roots’ affair, with the four-piece working with the same
engineer in the same ‘local’ studio, Barrick Recording, where they crafted their
eponymous debut. The band has developed an enormous following, touring six
continents, headlining festivals, topping the charts, and sharing the stage with
Def Leppard, Bad Company, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Alter Bridge, Halestorm,
Shinedown, Theory of a Deadman, and more.
