Roadrunner Records group Black Stone Cherry have premiered “Fiesta Del Fuego,” the second taste of new music from their forthcoming album, Magic Mountain, which is due out May 6th. Fans can stream “Fiesta Del Fuego” on the official Roadrunner Records YouTube Page and pre-order copies of Magic Mountain on iTunes. All pre-orders will receive instant downloads of “Me and Mary Jane” and “Fiesta del Fuego.” Fans can also pre-order Magic Mountain from the band’s webstore; the first 50 orders will receive an autographed copy of the album!
Black Stone Cherry says of the new album, which was produced by Joe Barresi, “Not since before our first album have we felt the freedom and confidence that we felt while writing and recording this album. After touring the world behind three previous albums that we are extremely proud of, we feel this album best captures the live energy, honesty and vibe that encompasses our true musicianship.”
In December, guitarist Ben Wells told us in an exclusive interview, “We’re the type of band where we’re open-minded, but we’re also very protective of our songs and the sound of the record. Joe understood—[he’s not] a guy who’s like, ‘Well, I’ve had success doing it this way,’ and makes you sound like every other band out there. So it was awesome to work with Joe—he was such a cool guy. He’s done Tool, he did the last Soundgarden, Queens of the Stone Age…he’s also a really great old school guy, he loves all those classic bands that had great guitar sounds and drum sounds and were about riffs, and everybody standing out on an album versus making a lead singer out of ’em. That’s just not the kind of band we are, so working with him, that’s really the type of stuff we prefer doing. I know every band talks up their newest album, but I really can’t say enough good things about this one.”
