The Los Angeles-based hard rock act Buckcherry formed in mid-1995, after singer Joshua Todd and guitarist Keith Nelson were introduced through their tattoo artist. After cutting several demos, the duo recruited bassist Jonathan “J.B.” Brightman and drummer Devon Glenn and began performing live, quickly earning a local following for their swaggering, grunge-flavored music. Following the subsequent addition of second guitarist Yogi, Buckcherry signed with DreamWorks Records and issued their self-titled debut LP in 1999. Singles such as “Check Your Head” and “For the Movies” were modern rock hits, allowing Buckcherry to raise their profile by summer 2000.
The following year, they released their second album, Time Bomb. Although it wasn’t widely noticed by critics, AC/DC recruited the band as an opening act for a series of shows, and Buckcherry’s audience grew accordingly. In July 2002, founding member Joshua Todd unexpectedly left the group, and the band took a multi-year hiatus to recoup. They eventually regrouped in 2005 with original members Todd and Nelson, as well as newcomers Xavier Muriel (drums), bassist Jimmy Ashhurst, and guitarist Stevie D. The revised lineup hit the studio later that year to record 15, which was released in early 2006 and yielded the band’s first Top Ten pop single, “Sorry.” 15 went platinum on the strength of its crossover appeal, and Buckcherry quickly returned in 2008 with a fourth album, Black Butterfly. The concert album Live & Loud 2009 was released the following year, as the band prepared to hit the road as KISS’ opening act. The band released its fifth full-length album, All Night Long, in August 2010, debuting at number 10 on the Billboard Top 200.
The band later parted ways with Atlantic and signed to Century Media, and released the heavy, melodic Confessions in February 2013. As part of their promotion for Confessions, they assembled several short films to accompany it. See Buckcherry live in Bismarck on January 24th at the Bismarck Civic Center!
