2019 release from the hard rockers. Ask Josh Todd about the inspiration behind Warpaint, Buckcherry's eighth studio album-and indeed, the frontman's goal in making music-and he's got a ready response: "I want to connect with people, host the party, and give people a night they're never going to forget," Todd says. Recorded at West Valley Recording Studios with Mike Plotnikoff. Going into the studio in late 2018 with an arsenal of 30 songs written by Todd and guitarist Stevie D., the band worked around the clock for several weeks to capture the energy of the 11 cuts ultimately chosen for Warpaint. The first single, "Bent," is anthemic but raw, with big drums and even bigger guitars. Warpaint delivers an aural punch, a refreshing boldness even on the ballads, and stellar lead guitar work (check out the fretwork on "Vacuum") and the album closes with an unexpected kick. Then, of course, there's the wild-card on Warpaint: Buckcherry's take on Nine Inch Nails' classic "Head Like A Hole."
