Black Stone Cherry Won't Let Arena Status Go To Their Heads

(Classic Rock) Black Stone Cherry say they'll never allow their status as an 'arena band' to make them take anything for granted. The band are building up to the release of their fifth album Kentucky.

The follow-up to 2014's Magic Mountain arrives on April 1 via Mascot Label Group and BSC are on the road across North America before dates in Australia and a run on the Carnival Of Madness tour with Shinedown and Halestorm.

They are also lined up to appear at the Ramblin'Man Fair in the UK on July 24. Despite filling bigger and bigger venues, the band insist they still see themselves as a small group.

Guitarist Ben Wells tells TeamRock Radio presenter Pete Bailey's The Playlist podcast: "I don't think it's soaked in yet. I don't think we're officially considering ourselves an arena band yet, and I don't think we ever will. The day that we sit back and go, 'Oh well, we're doing arenas now, we're good,' will be a dangerous day for us.

"We always consider ourselves small. Same old dudes that started out. When we hear ourselves on the radio, we still get super excited about that. We don't ever wanna get comfortable, but are we grateful? Absolutely." Read more here.
