More Buckcherry More Buckcherry

Californian rock vets Buckcherry — probably best known for having kept a straight face for 20 years while being in a band called 'Buckcherry' — are touching up their neck tatts and heading to Australia and New Zealand early next year for a run of shows in support of recent seventh album Rock N Roll, it has been announced.

The Crazy Bitch and Say Fuck It scribes, who are very rock'n'roll, in case that fact has escaped you, will kick off their regional sojourn across the way in Auckland, playing the Powerstation on Sunday 13 March, jumping the ditch to kick off the Aussie leg at Melbourne's 170 Russell on 14 March. Buckcherry will then rock'n'roll their way to Brisbane's Max Watt's on Tuesday 15 March, before Sydney's Metro on Friday 18 March and Perth's Metropolis on Saturday 19 March.

The new album comes two years after the band's sixth LP Confessions, and is pegged as "sum[ming] up the band's ethos perfectly", with the accompanying reinvigorated live show no doubt keeping an eye on Buckcherry's back catalogue, boasting early works such as Lit Up and Dead Again, in addition to unleashing a chunk of their newest slice of sweat-fuelled good times upon the waiting ears of their audience.

"Rock'n'roll should make you want to do a few things," guitarist Keith Nelson said in a statement. "It should make you want to drive fast, fuck and dance."
