In the past two decades, Black Stone Cherry has set a new standard for southern rock, revitalising the tradition with burly riffs and stirring rock hooks. The four-piece band have blazed their own way in establishing a legacy. 'The Human Condition' was self-produced and tracked in bassist Jon Lawhon's recording facility, Monocle Studios, in March 2020. The guys went in with four songs, wrote new songs, and recorded some beloved unreleased favourites. For the first time, the band opted to not record basics live and instead meticulously multitracked. Each member endured grueling sessions to ensure the collective studio mindset of achieving 'epic performances'. The results are stunning - the grooves feel organic, the riffs are mountainous and the performances are urgent.
