Los Angeles-based rockers Buckcherry took the stage Tuesday night at Dixie Roadhouse in Cape Coral despite the best efforts of local religious group the Holy Family.
In a letter posted on the band's bus door (check it out below), as well as on the venue's door, a spokesperson for the Holy Family in Cape Coral demanded that the show be canceled. "I do apologize for the last minute notice," the letter began, "however I'm afraid the concert is going to definitely have to be canceled."
The author continued, citing Buckcherry's "totally disgusting" lyrics and their "contrived ignorant babble and filth" as the reasons that the show must not go on. In a twist few saw coming, the letter also made a note of pointing out that aside from the explicit lyrics, the "Holy Family very much enjoys Buckcherry's music."
In addition to the letter, Dixie Roadhouse also confirmed two separate bomb scares. The details of the scares are not readily available, nor is it confirmed that the Holy Family is responsible, but the letter's closing paragraph states that "anyone who says this is a hoax is a lying idiot."
Despite the trouble, Buckcherry persevered, and took the stage. Venue security "stepped it up and the show went off without a hitch," according to the band's manager.
"We came here to entertain a large group of people that wanted to have a good time," said guitarist Keith Nelson, "and that's exactly what we did." Lead singer Josh Todd added "Buckcherry has always been about having a good time and we express ourselves the way we want to because we are free. They don't like our lyrics and hide behind religion as an excuse to attack us as a group or treat other people poorly. Well they can just fuck right off." More...
Buckcherry has posted a video for "Wrath," the third music video from current studio release "Confessions." Watch it below.
"They say it's the quiet ones you gotta look out for, you know why? Because they keep all their wrath inside..." says Buckcherry frontman Josh Todd of the song. "This is a fight song - fuck the system or the system fucks you!"
The video was directed by Billy Jayne, who also directed "Gluttony," the first single released from "Confessions." Buckcherry is currently touring overseas in Europe, the United Kingdom, and Australia through December 12th. The band celebrates the new year with a hometown show January 17th, 2014 at The Whisky A GoGo in West Hollywood, CA. More...

Buckcherry has premiered a new video for “Gluttony” - the first single from the "Confessions" album - through AOL's Noisecreep.com. Check out the track right here or in the player below.
The clip was directed by Billy Jayne and features the band performing the song in a church filled with people indulging in all types of vices, while the video’s protagonist struggles to overcome his own gluttony.
The multi-platinum Los Angeles rock band will release "Confessions" February 19th, 2013 via Century Media Records and the “Gluttony” single is available for purchase through iTunes now. Buckcherry vocalist Josh Todd explains the inspiration for the “Gluttony” video: “The concept of the video is excess, consuming everything excessively, and moderation is not even in the equation. I’m very familiar with that, and a lot of guys in the band are familiar with that.”
He continues: “Because the record is called Confessions, we filmed the video in a church, we got Jesus down there--which is killer--and we got a lot of our fans in it, which is amazing. They came out on their own time and really put in a lot of sweat equity, so thank you to them.”
Guitarist Keith Nelson elaborates, “We worked with Billy Jayne, who hasn’t done a lot of music videos. It was really refreshing to see his take on what we’re doing because he totally gets the music, he’s connecting with it, and he’s taking it to a different place than a guy who does videos for a living. We got a guy who actually makes movies and TV shows to put his spin on it and it’s been really positive.” More...
Multi-Platinum Los Angeles rock band Buckcherry will release new CD "Confessions" on February 19th, 2013 via Century Media Records. "Gluttony" - the first single from the album - will be available for purchase through iTunes tomorrow (Tuesday, December 11th).
In the meantime, a free download of "Gluttony" is available today only (Monday, December 10th) through Century Media here. A lyric video for "Gluttony" can also be seen below.
