In the space of a decade, Black Stone Cherry have established themselves as one of the frontrunners of American rock. Their name might not have infiltrated every nook and cranny like that of Nickelback, but if you wade through the river of shit that can only be represented by ‘Rockstar’ (a song which simultaneously exalted Nickelback to the pop hall of fame and signed the death warrant of hard-rock’s dignity), then you reach a field where decent rock bands frolic like there was no tomorrow. This is firmly where Black Stone Cherry has set up camp.
Black Stone Cherry have announced that their third full-length album ‘Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea’ is due to be released on May 30th 2011 through Roadrunner Records.
Def Leppard are to return to headline Download 2011, after headlining it as early ago as 2009′s festival. Along with this 17 other bands have been added onto the festival line-up: Turisas, All That Remains, Sacred Mother Tongue, Bowling For Soup, The Devil Wears Prada, Bring Me The Horizon, Frank Turner, Cheap Trick, Asking Alexandria, Straight Line Stitch, Disturbed, Black Stone Cherry, The King Blues, Madina Lake, Down, Jameson Raid and Ghost.
More acts are still yet to be announced. For more information on tickets and the festival please visit the official website.
