Buckcherry Celebrates a "Crazy" Anniversary; "Crazy B*tch" Marks Full Year in Ringscan Top 30; Hard Rock Heroes Light It Up on Tour as "15" Approaches RIAA Platinum Certification

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - August 30, 2007) - Eleven Seven/Atlantic recording group Buckcherry is marking a major milestone this week as their blockbuster hit, "Crazy B*tch," celebrates a full year in the Nielsen Ringscan Top 30 -- the only track to do so in the chart's history. The ringtone was already a smash in Nielsen Ringscan's first-ever reporting week (ending September 3, 2006), and in the year that followed, has yet to drop out of the Top 30. In its 52nd week on the Ringscan chart, the ringtone is currently ranked at #23. "Crazy B*tch" has been certified as a Platinum Master Ringtone by the RIAA.

Released in April 2006, "15," the Los Angeles-based rock outfit's third album, has proven a triumph, spending a remarkable 72 weeks on the Billboard 200 on its way towards RIAA platinum certification for sales exceeding 1 million units.

"Crazy B*tch" -- which earned Buckcherry a 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 number 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. The album's fifth single, "Sorry," is currently set to impact at multi-format radio outlets nationwide on September 10th.

Buckcherry is among the most popular bands on MySpace, currently standing tall in the site's Top 10 Indie Artists ranking with over 18 million streams thus far. The hard-touring band has spent its summer on the road, lighting up amphitheatres and arenas as part of the Bad Boys of Rock megabill. The road show -- which also stars Hinder and Papa Roach -- will continue to travel North America through a September 22th finale at the Oklahoma City Zoo Amphitheatre (see itinerary).

In addition, Buckcherry will be among the co-headliners at the annual FM99 Lunatic Luau, slated for September 15th at Virginia Beach's Verizon Wireless Amphitheater. On September 17th, the band will perform at the Hard Rock Café in New York City for the culmination of the Bike Night series, a five-night series sponsored by the Hard Rock and the Indian Larry Legacy to benefit September's Mission, an organization which supports the development of a memorial park in the former World Trade Center site.

Buckcherry is: Josh Todd - vocals * Keith Nelson - guitar * Jimmy Ashhurst - bass * Stevie D. - guitar * Xavier Muriel - drums.
