bsc-folklorerushonrock faves Black Stone Cherry will make a decision in the New Year whether to carry on touring hit record Folklore & Superstition (pictured) or begin writing the follow-up to their hugely successful second album.

The US stars complete a headline tour of the UK later this month before a handful of European shows before November. The boys head home for a couple of charity gigs in the build-up to Christmas – before decision day on their immediate future.

“Come January we need to know whether we’re sitting down to write a new record or whether we’re going to give F&S one last twirl,” singer Chris Robertson told rushonrock.

“We like to write a record every two years and we’ve been on the road with this one for 18 months now. It’s been great and it’s taken the band all over the world but there might be some other folk who still want to hear it.

“We’re keen to get started on the third album and I suppose that’s what we’re thinking right now.

“But in the end it might come down to what the record label wants and what they feel is best. And if they want us back out on the road then that’s where we’ll be!”

And it’s on the road is where BSC are making a name for themselves as the best young classic rock band around with every gig seemingly better than the last.

No doubt label bosses at Roadrunner can see the value in keeping their star names rolling for another six months – but fans are equally keen to hear what Chris and his mates ahve up their sleeves after the superb effort which is F&S.
