Kentucky rockers Black Stone Cherry are pleased to announce August 19 as the confirmed release date for Folklore and Superstition, their second effort for Roadrunner Records.

The band, known for crafting blues-infused Southern rawk that sounds as good on the back porch as it does bellowing from Marshall stacks in a packed venue, named their sophomore effort after a distinct tradition from their native region: folklore, story telling and superstitions. "There is a mystique with folklore and superstition," says drummer John Fred Young. "We're intrigued by and interested in history, roots and heritage, and we incorporate that into the band." Bassist Jon Lawhon concurs, "We are taking the Southern tradition and spreading it out to the rest of the world. They say, ‘Write what you know,' so that's what we're doing, writing what we know."

On Folklore and Superstition, Black Stone Cherry incorporates lyrical tales with upbeat riffing and atypical conventions like turkey calls, making it a record that is pleasing as it is unpredictable. The band recorded the album at Black Bird Studios, which is owned and operated by country artist Martina McBride, in Nashville, Tennessee. The album crackles with a down-home, feel good, rock ‘n roll current and was produced and mixed by veteran rock producer Bob Marlette (Ozzy, Saliva, Seether, Shinedown).
