Punk grit at Brighton

Expect punk grit, gutter attitude, honest storytelling and razor-sharp hooks, says promoter Kairen Kemp.

“Buckcherry don’t play by the rules and remain rebellious in every way. Their no-frills approach to making music was solidified from the beginning, when Josh Todd (vocals) and Keith Nelson (guitar) started cutting tracks in Todd’s bedroom, and finally grew into a quintet with Stevie D (guitar), Jimmy Ashhurst (bass) and Xavier Muriel (drums).”

They play Concorde 2, Brighton tonight (Friday, December 7).

“With their second album 15, Buckcherry became an international platinum-selling phenomenon, moving over one million copies in the US alone. The band’s reputation as a force to be reckoned with continues with their sixth album Confession.

“Live, these five musicians can bring any crowd to its feet. Barely ever taking a break, the band relentlessly tours every corner of the world from the US and South America to Germany, Japan, Australia, and the UK.”
