All Night Long -- the fifth album from Buckcherry -- is the vital sound of rock and roll endurance at its very best. It s not just rock, it s rock and roll. More than a decade after first establishing its good name with the popular eponymous 1999 debut effort, Buckcherry has created the band s most eclectic and impressive effort yet. All Night Long is a thoroughly rocking song cycle in the grand tradition of classic albums by the group s forefathers and now friends Aerosmith, AC/DC and Kiss.
'We set out to make a great rock record from beginning to end,' says lead vocalist Josh Todd. 'That s always been our quest. When I listen back to All Night Long, I think that this is definitely one of our strongest efforts to date and has a really definitive overall vibe. Now I can t wait to sing these songs live for people and let everyone hear the results for themselves.'
All Night Long finds the band returning to its roots with original independent label Eleven Seven Music, thus giving Buckcherry the freedom over the creative process that the band has always desired. As Buckcherry cofounder and guitarist Keith Nelson explains, Buckcherry is by design a real rock band that s built to last. 'I think we endure and evolve because we genuinely do this for the love of the music,' says Nelson. 'All the by-products of loving the music -- being rock stars, having nice cars and lots of toys -- are pretty cool too, but that s not the motivating factor for us. The motivating factor for Buckcherry is that we all truly love being in a rock and roll band -- specifically, in this rock and roll band -- and that s the passion that drives everything else that we do.'
