Buckcherry Unveils MVI Edition of "15"; Hard Rock Heroes Set for 300th Gig in Support of the Album as New Single, "Sorry," Ascends the Airplay Charts

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - November 9, 2007) - Eleven Seven/Atlantic recording group Buckcherry has announced details for the upcoming MVI edition of its blockbuster third album, "15." The DVD package -- which features a stunning assortment of exclusive material and unprecedented extras -- will arrive in stores on November 20th.

An MVI is a PC/MAC-compatible DVD which contains the full album, along with portable music files, video content and interactive features. The "15" MVI will feature full album audio, downloadable files for every song, previously unreleased live tracks (including "Everything," "Next 2 You," and "Crazy Bitch"), videos, an exclusive photo gallery, complete lyrics, U-Myx (which allows fans to create their own custom remixes of "Crazy Bitch" and "Everything"), plus a variety of digital extras (such as ringtones, screen savers, buddy icons, and wallpapers). In addition, fans who register their "15" MVI can unlock future content as it becomes available.

Originally released in April 2006, "15" has proven a triumph for the Los Angeles-based rock outfit, spending a remarkable 82 weeks on the Billboard 200 on its way towards RIAA platinum certification for sales above 1 million units.

"Sorry," the fifth and most recent single from "15," is currently ascending the top 25 at Hot AC outlets nationwide. The album's first blockbuster hit single, "Crazy Bitch" -- which earned Buckcherry a 2007 Grammy Awards nomination in the "Best Hard Rock Performance" category -- caused a sensation upon its initial release last year, reaching #2 at Mainstream Rock and #3 at Active Rock. A string of further rock radio hits followed, including "Next 2 You," "Broken Glass," and "Everything." The singles have all blown up online, with cumulative digital sales now approaching 1 million.

In addition, "Crazy Bitch," recently celebrated a full year in the Nielsen Ringscan Top 30 -- the only track to do so in the chart's history. "Crazy Bitch" has been certified as a Platinum Master Ringtone by the RIAA.

Buckcherry is among the most popular bands on MySpace, currently standing tall in the site's Top 10 Indie Artists ranking with over 20 million streams thus far. The hard-touring band recently announced its milestone 300th live show in support of "15," slated for December 15th at Las Vegas' House of Blues.

"We've played EVERYWHERE in the past two years. Buckcherry fans always bring the thunder. We can't wait to rock Vegas for our 300th show!" said lead singer Josh Todd.

In addition, the band will finish out the year in Canada on Dec. 28 in Brandon, MB; Dec. 29 in Winnipeg, MB; and Dec. 31 in Saskatoon, SK.

Furthermore, Buckcherry is currently hosting a special contest giving its fans the chance to create their own video for "Sorry." Contestants are invited to upload their videos to www.youtube.com/group/buckcherryyoursorry, with the video receiving the most plays by December 15th winning a Grand Prize of $4,000.
