Black Stone Cherry to Headline 2014 HardDrive Live Summer Tour
The lineup has been set for the sixth annual HardDrive Live Tour. Black Stone Cherry will headline, with We As Human and Kyng also on the bill, and the trek kicks off July 11 in Johnson City, Tenn. The initial dates are below, with more set to be announced soon.
Black Stone Cherry just released their latest album ‘Magic Mountain,’ and frontman Chris Robertson spoke with Loudwire about the album.
“For us, ‘Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea’ was kind of a different record,” Robertson says. “It was a little more commercial than what we had done in the past, and that’s what we were going for. You know there’s a lot of pressure from the label on that record. Trying to break wide open at radio. So we did a lot of co-writing and stuff like that, with outside songwriters, and for the new album, the majority of the songs, you know with the exception, of I think, just three or four songs, they’re all written by the band and only the band, which is awesome for us, because those songs come across, there’s a certain element of honesty in these songs that we’ve never hit before with our songwriting.”
We As Human’s self-titled album was released last year, and Kyng will be touring in support of ‘Burn the Serum,’ which came out last month.
