Speaking about the new track, BLACK STONE CHERRY frontman Chris Robertson said: “‘Out Of Pocket’ is a song born out of that exact feeling. The song was what I personally, and I think a lot of us, felt over these very trying last couple of years. Facing your demons, knowing that you have to come out the other side stronger than before.”
Last October, BLACK STONE CHERRY drummer John Fred Young told Loud TV that he and his bandmates started working on the follow-up to 2020’s “The Human Condition” album last summer. “I think there’s about eight songs right now that we had done, and we’re gonna go back in in December and finish up the rest,” he said at the time. “So (it’s) a really, really cool situation.
“We’ve got our own theater back in Glasgow, Kentucky, where Ben (Wells, guitar) lives. We do our home shows there; we do it every two years at Christmas. So we recorded the drums in this big, beautiful theater. And they just sound incredible; even with me playing, they sound incredible. And we’re going to my house to do vocals and guitars. So, (it’s) really cool, man. I think people will really love the songs and the playing.
“We recorded ‘The Human Condition’ in 2020, and when we were doing that, everything with COVID, it was really starting to rise up,” John added. “And we got done with that record two days before our state locked us down. So we were lucky to get that done. But I think probably next year, early next year, we’ll have a new record out.”
Over the past two decades, the Kentucky Southern rockers have shaken stages from arenas to festivals across Europe, bringing the good times every time. In 2021 they fulfilled a lifetime ambition of playing London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall, bringing an incredibly emotional and powerful performance. Now it’s time to blow the roof off those arenas once again.Black Stone Cherry have 2023 firmly in their sights and are taking it, lock, stock and barrel.
