BUCKCHERRY Singer And Guitarist Open Up About Band's Challenges, Memories And Future

In the eight-minute video below, BUCKCHERRY members Josh Todd (vocals) and Stevie Dacanay (a.k.a. Stevie D., guitar) open up about the band's challenges, memories and future.

BUCKCHERRY's latest album, "Warpaint", was released in March via Century Media/RED Music. The 12-song disc, featuring 11 new BUCKCHERRY songs along with a cover of the NINE INCH NAILS classic "Head Like A Hole", was produced by Mike Plotnikoff, whose last collaboration with the band was the platinum-certified album "15".

Speaking about BUCKCHERRY's longevity, Todd told the Greenville Journal: "The whole time we've been together, we've never really been a mainstream act. When we dropped our first record, a lot of those rap-rock bands or bands like WEEZER were really popular, and we haven't been mainstream since. And sometimes it's served us and sometimes it hasn't. I think the whole point of it is that you have to be passionate about what you do, and you've got to be relentless in your approach, and that's our philosophy. Plus, we've based our reputation on our live show, and that's something that's never going away."

Josh added in a separate interview with Go Triad: "I'm just grateful to be in the game for 20 years. It's really hard to do. And to have eight records and 20 years in the game, I mean, the first record we had was in 1999. When we dropped our first record, it was rap-rock and what I call nerd rock, the shoe-gazing bands that were around — wearing Buddy Holly glasses and looking down at their shoes. So that's what was out when we came out. So we’ve kind of been on our own little island for 20 years. So that I'm really proud of because it's pretty hard to maintain."
