Frontman Chris Robertson hopes to launch Magic Mountain follow-up shortly after Carnival Of Madness UK tour

Black Stone Cherry aim to have their fifth album out in the spring of next year.

The band headline the 2016 UK Carnival Of Madness tour where they’ll be joined by Shinedown, Halestorm and Highly Suspect in January and February. And frontman Chris Robertson expects a single out before then, with the follow-up to Magic Mountain to follow.

Robertson tells TeamRock Radio: “We’ve got tour dates up until September and we’re gonna start recording in October or November and hopefully have the album ready to be released in the spring next year, after the Carnival Of Madness tour. We hope to have a new song out for radio before we come over for the Carnival tour.”

The band headlined the Encore Stage at Download on Friday and played a new track – and Robertson was thrilled with the crowd’s response.

He says: “We did one new song last night, Roadrunner, and it was awesome. I saw people singing along by the third chorus and that’s how you know you’ve got a song that people can latch on to.

“The new stuff we’re working on is heavy and it’s got an intensity. It’s kind of leaning back to our very first album. The cool thing is we’ve recorded two songs so far and we’re gonna go back later this year and record the new album in the same place we did the self-titled debut.”
