It was only last year that Buckcherry was rocking ‘All Night Long’ — but according to an interview the band recently conducted while in the UK for the 2011 Download Festival, they’re already at work on their next album.

“Things are coming along good, we’re having fun and we’ve got around five demos wrapped up but it’s still very early and we need to get everyone in a room and just jam,” said vocalist Josh Todd.

“I just think the pervasive feeling of the stuff we’re coming up with, we’re just trying to come out of our comfort zone a little bit,” added guitarist Keith Nelson. “Really trying to push the envelope without getting away from the sound that you love of this band, but I think we’re going to try to push the envelope and go for something cool and different.”

That’s an awful lot of envelope pushing, but the resurgent rockers are coming off a pair of top 10 albums, so we think they can probably handle it. Buckcherry’s summer run of American tour dates kicks off July 2 in Winnie, Texas.
