BUCKCHERRY's smash hit single "Crazy Bitch" has earned a Grammy nomination from the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences in the category of "Best Hard Rock Performance". The lead single from the gold certified release "15" (Eleven Seven Music/Atlantic Records), "Crazy Bitch" is currently the most played song at Mainstream Rock radio along with the RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS' "Dani California" for the year. "15" is the band's first studio album in four years, released in the U.S. in April 2006 with a debut at No. 2 on the Independent Album Chart. The out-of-the-box success of "15" gained the attention of Atlantic Records who immediately brought them up in the ranks adding them to the roster.
BUCKCHERRY lead singer and co-founder Josh Todd reacted to the news, "Who would have thought you could record an album in fifteen days, release it independently, have it go gold and get nominated for a Grammy in less than a year? When we started this project, no one believed in it except us and our management company. It's exciting and shows that if you're passionate and work hard anything can happen."
BUCKCHERRY just announced a national co-headlining tour with 3 DAYS GRACE kicking off in January. Details are available at www.buckcherry.com.
Formed in Los Angeles in 1995, BUCKCHERRY broke onto the national scene in 1999 with the release of their self-titled debut album. The critically acclaimed set scored such Modern Rock hits as "Lit Up", "Check Your Head", and "For The Movies", while fans and industry insiders alike celebrated the band's refreshingly direct, no-holds-barred return to pure rock 'n' roll. In the summer of 2001, BUCKCHERRY released "Time Bomb", which was followed by a stint opening for one of their long time heroes, AC/DC.
