Kicking the door open into 2023, Black Stone Cherry have revealed a brand-new song, "Out of Pocket." The song is out now via Mascot Records/Mascot Label Group and is available on all streaming platforms. You can listen to it here https://youtu.be/OWt6I-J3-lQ
The song drops in time for fans to get pumped up for their upcoming co-headline UK arena tour with British rockers The Darkness, which begins at Cardiff's Motorpoint Arena on 28th January. The tour then roars its way around the country, playing Liverpool's M&S Bank Arena, Glasgow's OVO Arena, Birmingham's Resorts World Arena, Manchester AO Arena, and Leeds First Direct Arena before a major headline show in London at the Wembley OVO Arena on the 4th February. You can get tickets HERE.
"Out of Pocket" is the band's first new song since the release of their 2020 album The Human Condition and is another trademark rocker from their locker. Emotionally rousing with a roof-raising battle cry chorus, it shows the band at their anthemic best. The lifelong friends Chris Robertson, vocals/guitar; Ben Wells, guitar/vocals; and John Fred Young, drums, welcome their new bass player Steve Jewell on his first studio recordings, having slayed the stages with them over the past two years.
Talking about the song Chris Robertson says, "Out of Pocket is a song born out of that exact feeling. The song was what I personally, and I think a lot of us, felt over these very trying last couple of years. Facing your demons, knowing that you have to come out the other side stronger than before."
Over the past two decades, the Kentucky Southern rockers have shaken stages from arenas to festivals across Europe, bringing the good times every time. In 2021 they fulfilled a lifetime ambition of playing London's iconic Royal Albert Hall, bringing an incredibly emotional and powerful performance. Now it's time to blow the roof off those arenas once again.
Black Stone Cherry have 2023 firmly in their sights and are taking it, lock, stock and barrel.
