Black Stone Cherry aren’t aliens to huge arena tours after securing an opening slot with rock legends Def Leppard and Whitesnake on their European double headline arena tour. They are released their second studio album ‘Folklore and Superstition’ in August 2008. Vocalist/guitarist Chris Robertson reflects on the process, saying,
“Starting out as a band seven years ago, with high hopes and even bigger dreams, I honestly believe this record shows the experience of our past travels, and gives a hint of the future. It captures all the energy and heart that embody Black Stone Cherry. We took some chances on this album and I believe that our fans will appreciate seeing the other sides of the band that they may or may not have known existed.”
Nickelback vocalist, Chad Kroeger has also commented on his take on Nickelback’s popularity, “I honestly think that with every song you release you have to keep winning your own fans over again,” he explains. “I want every single song to be amazing. That’s what I want to hear, so that’s what we have to try to provide to our fans.”
