"With ties to all three of heavy rock's most iconic bands - Black Sabbath, Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin – Black Country Communion
is a modern supergroup to rival Them Crooked Vultures."
BCC features the talents of vocalist/bassist Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple, Trapeze), blues rock guitarist/vocalist Joe Bonamassa, drummer Jason Bonham (Led Zeppelin) and keyboardist Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater).
Black Country Communion's self-titled debut album was originally released during September 2010 to rave reviews. It entered the official UK album chart at #13 and shot straight to #1 in the official UK rock album chart. BCC's debut also hit #3 in Classic Rock magazine's Critics Album of the Year poll, while Planet Rock radio listeners voted them as the Best New Band of 2010.
Black Country Communion are currently mixing their second studio album. The yet untitled album, produced by Kevin Shirley and rumoured to be their most explosive to date, is scheduled for June 2011 release.
