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.
"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."
Today, Buckcherry -- Todd, Nelson, guitarist Stevie D., bassist Jimmy Ashhurst and drummer Xavier Muriel -- is clearly a band fired up and ready to bring All Night Long alive on a stage near you. "Buckcherry is not a party without the five of us," explains Keith Nelson. "Though the majority of what you hear starts off with Josh and I, the whole thing only takes on a life of its own when the five of us get together and get rolling. Each one of the guys in the band now is vital to our sound. Stevie is incredibly great to play guitar with, and with the rhythm section, Xavier is the rock and Jimmy is the roll. That's just the way it is."
Throughout their already illustrious history, Buckcherry has never been a group to chase trends or fashions. "There's always a void open for a rock band like us to fill," says Josh Todd. "I don't think anyone else does quite what we do. Hey, it's not that we're re-inventing the wheel, but we've been doing this for over a decade now and part of what makes it work is our chemistry as a band. We don't sound like anyone else. We sound like Buckcherry. We also don't put a lot of bells and whistles and samples in our music, and so what you see is what you get."
