Black Stone Cherry have launched a video for The Chain, the latest single to be released from last year's The Human Condition album.

"The Chain is one of those straight ahead, 'riff city', throwdown BSC songs!," says
Guitarist Ben Wells. "Not only is the music totally in your face, it also grooves and features a totally metal bridge, which was fun to record! There's also something to be said for the lyrical message behind this tune. We hope you enjoy! Turn it up!”

Last month Black Stone Cherry released a live version of another Human Condition track, Again. It was taken from band’s Live From The Sky streaming event which was held on October 30 last year at the SKyPAC, a performing arts centre in Bowling Green, Kentucky – and was broadcast on the same day the album hit store shelves.

Black Stone Cherry will head out on tour across the UK in September 2021 with special guests The Kris Barras Band after they were forced to postpone their 2020 touring plans. Full dates below.
