With a new album titled 15 (after the number of days it took to record) and a slew of new members, Buckcherry singer Josh Todd and guitarist Keith Nelson are ready to talk about the tumultuous past few years, reports ChartAttack's Caitlin Hotchkiss.
"I don't think we ever wanted the band to be over with," says Todd, "but there were a lot of things going on at the time. Three of the members had quit, a lot of things with our record label were miserable, and it was just time to take a hiatus. It was a heartbreak when it happened, but we knew what we had to do.
"Keith and I started this band, and it eventually came up in conversation when we got together and started talking about life. It felt like the time was right to bring it back."
"I think that it's important to remember throughout the whole process how really lucky we are to be able to do this," adds Nelson. "I just think about how lucky we are that we don't have to load garbage into trucks or anything like that, you know what I mean? This is the best job anybody could ever have, so I think we all need a little shot of humility and a little break from the action."
As now the break for their band is over, Buckcherry intend on returning in full form, if their first catchy, profanity-laden single has anything to say about it. "Crazy Bitch" was inspired by the Paris Hilton sex tape, according to Todd.
"That kind of sparked the idea. All the guys that we know have had crazy girls like that in their lives, so we wanted to write a song with an idea that people could latch on to."
Never mind that both the song and the video had to be heavily edited in order to make them commercially friendly. To this, Todd only shrugs.
"This is why I like satellite radio so much. I wish there was no censorship, but some people just can't take it."
