300 FOR ’15’ – BUCKCHERRY SET FOR MILESTONE GIG:
December 6, 2007
Eleven Seven/Atlantic recording group Buckcherry will celebrate a major milestone next week – the 300th live show in support of their triumphant third album, 15.
Set for December 15th at Las Vegas’ House of Blues, the gig represents still another career highlight for the Los Angeles-based hard rock outfit, which has toured nearly non-stop since the album’s April 2006 release, performing virtually anywhere there was electricity!
“15” has proven a huge achievement for Buckcherry, who went from a sales base of less than 150,000 on their previous album to nearing RIAA platinum certification for sales above 1 million units on its current release. The album has remained on the Billboard 200 for a remarkable 85 weeks, and has also proven that Buckcherry are multi-format hit-makers, having reached the upper echelons of the rock, alternative and now the Hot/AC & pop charts. “Sorry,” the fifth and most recent single from the album, is currently ascending the top 20 at Hot AC outlets nationwide, while also climbing up the top 40 at CHR/Top 40. Further, the track’s companion video has just been added into rotation at VH1.
“Crazy Bitch” – the Grammy Award-nominated first single from “15” – caused a radio riot upon its initial release last year, reaching #2 at Mainstream Rock and #3 at Active Rock. A string of further rock and alternative radio hits followed, including “Next 2 You,” “Broken Glass,” and “Everything.” The singles have all blown up online, with cumulative digital sales now approaching 1 million.
In addition, “Crazy Bitch” recently celebrated a full year in the Nielsen Ringscan Top 30 – the only track to do so in the chart’s history. “Crazy Bitch” has been certified as a Gold Master Ringtone by the RIAA, with sales now exceeding 1.2 million.
Buckcherry recently unveiled the MVI edition of “15.” An MVI is a PC/MAC-compatible DVD which contains the full album, along with portable music files, video content and interactive features. The “15” MVI features full album audio, downloadable files for every song, previously unreleased live tracks (including “Everything,” “Next 2 You,” and “Crazy Bitch”), videos, an exclusive photo gallery, complete lyrics, U-Myx (which allows fans to create their own custom remixes of “Crazy Bitch” and “Everything”), plus a variety of digital extras (such as ringtones, screen savers, buddy icons, and wallpapers). In addition, fans who register their “15” MVI can unlock future content as it becomes available.
