Hard rockers Buckcherry still have a bit more work to do on their new album, 'All Night Long,' but they've set Aug. 3 for its release date in North America.

A free digital download of the title track and first single was offered on www.buckcherry.com, as well as through Twitter and Facebook, and according to the press release from Hired Gun Media, "The response was so overwhelming that Twitter had to temporarily shut down the free download because the requests overloaded the system. The single received tens of thousands of hits in the first two days it was made available."

As a result of the download, radio stations in Chicago, Detroit, Seattle and Phoenix have already started to play 'All Night Long.' The song will be officially serviced to active rock, mainstream and alternative radio formats on May 17. The video will also premiere that day.

Buckcherry, fronted by Josh Todd, are currently in the studio putting the finishing touches on the album with producers Marti Frederiksen (Aerosmith, Def Leppard, Fuel) and guitarist/songwriter Keith Nelson. The band will hopefully road test some of these new songs when it plays a couple of dates later this month, and a handful a month in June, July and August.

In their more than decade-long career, Buckcherry have sold more than three million albums worldwide and racked up such hits as 'Lit Up,' 'Crazy B----' and 'Sorry.'
