Black Country Communion unveil new album
Black Country Communion, the new rock supergroup featuring former Deep Purple/Black Sabbath’s GLENN HUGHES (vocals, bass), Led Zeppelin’s JASON BONHAM (drums), guitar player JOE BONAMASSA (guitar, vocals), and Dream Theater’s DEREK SHERINIAN (keyboards), have today revealed the artwork for the debut album for the first time.
Released by Mascot Records in the UK and Europe on Monday September 20th, followed by a North American release via J&R Adventures on September 21st, the hotly tipped debut album is produced and mixed by KEVIN SHIRLEY (Black Crowes, Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin).
“The album’s jam-packed with quality rock songs that collectively showcase each musician,” says Dave Lewis, editor of the Led Zeppelin magazine Tight But Loose. “BCC is no exercise in mere retro rock,” continues Lewis. “The album has a definite contemporary edge. Yes, there’s a real groove to it but, as Glenn says, with a Bonham involved, that’s to be expected. Jason puts in a performance that emphasizes why he was such an integral part of the success of the Led Zeppelin O2 reunion show.”
“This is the real thing and it’s the right thing to do at the right time,” adds Glenn Hughes. “It’s current, not old, or heritage, it’s designed to be a classic modern rock album and I get a chance to sing – really sing rock again, without holding back."
