Black Stone Cherry releases lyric video from upcoming album The Human Condition

 

BLACK STONE CHERRY are set to release their seventh studio album, The Human Condition on October 30th via Mascot Records/Mascot Label Group.  The collection will be available on Red Transparent Vinyl, Limited Edition CD Boxset and Digitally.

The Human Condition was completed mere days before the COVID-19 lockdown was imposed and as events progressed, it became apparent that the album the Kentucky band were completing featured lyrics that were eerily prescient.

"There was a real urgency and fear of the unknown during those sessions - it was a scary time," recalls drummer, John Fred Young. "Every song on this album tells a story of the experiences we all go through - our happiness, our struggles, and how we have to adapt."  The album's opening lyrics are: "People, people, your attention please, I need to tell you about a new disease" (from ‘Ringin' In My Head). The song was written 4 years ago, but powerfully captures the hysteria around the COVID-19 outbreak. On "Push Down & Turn," BSC masterfully use space to achieve crushing swamp-metal dynamics. The stirring track talks about mental health, boldly advocating getting treatment if you're struggling. "I suffer from manic depression and I have severe anxiety. I want to convey it's okay to go to a doctor and talk about these issues. There is no shame or stigma there," Chris Robertson shares.

The Human Condition was self-produced and tracked in bassist Jon Lawhon's recording facility, Monocle Studios. The guys went in with 4 songs, wrote some new ones and recorded a few beloved, unreleased favourites. For the first time, the band opted to not record basics live and instead meticulously multi tracked. Each member endured grueling sessions to ensure the collective studio mindset of achieving "epic performances." The results are stunning; the grooves feel organic, the riffs are mountainous, the performances are urgent and the hooks shine gloriously.  Sonically, The Human Condition is one of BSC's most visceral and hooky releases.  Guitarist/vocalist Ben Wells explains, "With this one, we cranked up the amps, the drums are in your face, and there are some really heavy riffs. After 19 years and 7 albums, we wanted to prove that we still kick ass. This album feels like a rebirth."
