Buckcherry releases new single, Nine Inch Nails cover 'Head Like A Hole'
The band will perform live in California for a handful of headline dates in January 2019 before they head overseas for their month-long February European tour
American band Buckcherry released their newest music in over three years with the cover of the Nine Inch Nails classic 'Head Like A Hole' November 2. It will be a part of Buckcherry's forthcoming seventh full-length album 'Warpaint', which is set to release in the spring via Century Media/RED Music. Producer Mike Plotnikoff, who previously worked with the band in 2005's platinum-certified (15) record, is helming the sessions.
The lead vocalist of the band, Josh Todd, told Billboard the Nine Inch Nails cover "happened really organically. We were in the studio making the record, just kind of going through some old songs while they were setting up. We jammed it out the first time and it was like, boom, automatically sounded right as if we'd written it, which is what we always want to achieve when we do a cover."
He also added: "Our producer Mike Plotnikoff was recording the whole time and said, 'Hey, why don't you guys come in and hear this?' He put up a little rough mix of it and we were like, 'Wow, this sounds really good. We should do it.'"

In an interview with 105.7 in September, Todd said Buckcherry wrote 30 songs for 2015's 'Rock 'N' Roll' follow-up. "We've been writing songs since November of last year, and we really molded it into something really great," he said.
According to Blabbermouth, Buckcherry's new disc will be the band's first release after the departures of guitarist Keith Nelson and drummer Xavier Muriel and the addition of Kevin Roentgen and Sean Winchester, respectively. The band will perform live in California for a handful of headline dates in January 2019 before they head overseas for their month-long February European tour.
