Black Stone Cherry drummer John Fred Young says the band are “not playing the radio game anymore.”
In a behind-the-scenes video from the studio where the band recorded upcoming fifth album Kentucky, Fred says that, for the first time, BSC are not chasing commercial success.
He says: “We didn’t have a producer that was trying to help us formulate a sound for radio or for a specific direction that an A&R guy wanted.
“I don’t know how many singles we’re gonna get, we’re not playing the radio game anymore. Not because we’re ‘bad boys’ or anything like that. I mean if radio wants to play us, God bless them.
“But we just got away from trying to sound how radio bands are supposed to sound.”
Kentucky – the follow-up to 2014’s Magic Mountain – is out on April 1 via Mascot Label Group. BSC have released a stream of The Way Of The Future, as well as a videos for In Our Dreams and The Rambler.
