Buckcherry stream cover of Nine Inch Nails classic Head Like A Hole

Buckcherry are streaming a cover of the 1989 Nine Inch Nails classic, “Head Like A Hole”, as the first preview to their forthcoming eighth studio album.

The recording "happened really organically,” singer Josh Todd tells Billboard. “We were in the studio making the record, just kind of going through some old songs while they were setting up. We jammed it out the first time and it was like, boom, automatically sounded right as if we'd written it, which is what we always want to achieve when we do a cover.

"Our producer Mike Plotnikoff was recording the whole time and said, 'Hey, why don't you guys come in and hear this?' He put up a little rough mix of it and we were like, 'Wow, this sounds really good. We should do it.'"

“Head Like A Hole” was the second single from Nine Inch Nails debut record, “Pretty Hate Machine.”

The tune is "really in my wheelhouse" as a singer,” adds Todd. “It's hard for me to sing cover songs if I don't really believe in the lyrics or it feels weird as far as where it sits in my range. But this is such a great song, and I love the lyrics. It means a lot to me...To me it's about being a slave to money and doing anything for it and greed and all that stuff. That's how I look at it at least."

Buckcherry will soon release more details about the follow-up to 2015's “Rock 'n' Roll”, which is expected sometime next year.
