CANTON -- Buckcherry will headline a multi-band concert at SUNY Canton Sunday, Oct. 14 at 6 p.m. at the Dana Hall Gym.

Formed in 1995, Buckcherry is known for hits like "Lit Up" and "Check Your Head." Their 2006 album "15" went platinum and contained their first Billboard Hot 100 top-ten hit, "Sorry." During their career, they have opened for artists like AC/DC and KISS. They are currently on tour in preparation for a release of their sixth album later this year.

The band will be performing following Lit, Charm City Devils and local favorite Tyrade.

Lit is best known for their 1999 No. 1 hit "My Own Worst Enemy." The California-based group has had other hits such as "Miserable," "Zip-Lock," "Over My Head," "Lipstick and Bruises" and "Addicted." They recently released their fifth album, "The View from the Bottom," on June 19, 2012.

Charm City Devils were formed in Baltimore, Md., in 2007. They were named Best New Rock Band by iTunes for 2009, and their sophomore album, "Sins," was released April 10, 2012. The single "Man of Constant Sorrow" from that album reached No. 20 on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.

Tyrade is one of the most popular bands in Northern New York. It consists of Matt Farrell of Saranac Lake, Tim Anson of Canton, Thomas Arquitt of Saranac Lake, and Ronn Simser of Renesselaer Falls. Their style ranges from melodic ballads to metal anthems. Their top hits include "Outburst II" and "Scud Missile," according to the band's MySpace page.
