Buckcherry will release their sixth album, Confessions, on February 19th via Century Media Records.
The Confessions album cover (pictured below) features a very ornate looking book with two clasps to hold it shut. Singer Josh Todd told BraveWords recently, “It’s an old, old bible that we found online actually; we just kind of recreated it. The actual cover (pictured below) is on the inside of that. We had this guy Ewok, who’s a really well-known, graffiti-type artist from New York, who’s never done a rock band before, and he did drawings for all the sins as well as the cover; it’s really good.”
Speaking of sin, Confessions is a thematic record about The Seven Deadly Sins, but not really a pure concept album. “No, it’s still a rock ‘n roll record, it’s still a Buckcherry record. We always wanted to do a record around the sins, a few other bands have done their take on it and we just wanted to do our take on it. As a lyric writer, it was really challenging, fun, and a lot of hard work. I’m so proud of songs like ‘Pride’ and ‘Greed’, and ‘Gluttony’ of course. I just felt like, when I look back at all this, I’m going to be pleased.”
