With their new album FAMILY TREE scoring rave reviews from Australia’s rock media, BLACK STONE CHERRY have upped both the ante and the fun factor with the release of the video for BAD HABIT, the second single from their upcoming 6th studio album just ahead of the album release. The clip sees the band transported back in time to 1988 to a local ‘Battle of the Bands’ contest. The result? Check it out below.

FAMILY TREE will be released this Friday, April 20 via Mascot Records/Mascot Label Group. While it doesn’t look like Black Stone Cherry will have time for a repeat visit to Australia in 2018, due largely to a huge run of dates in the US and Europe – including Download UK and Nova Rock Vienna with more to be announced – the band are definitely keen for a return in 2019.
