  BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION ENTER STUDIO TO BEGIN WORK ON FOURTH ALBUM
4th January 2017



black country communion

Glenn Hughes has confirmed on Facebook that Black Country Communion have entered a Hollywood, California studio to begin recording their fourth album, which Glenn said last year would be released in 2017.

BCC features Hughes alongside drummer Jason Bonham (Foreigner, UFO, Sammy Hagar), keyboardist Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater, Alice Cooper, Billy Idol) and Joe Bonamassa. The new album is the follow-up to 2012s 'Afterglow'.

After the fourth album, the band split up, apparently due to tensions between Bonamassa and Hughes but now, four years later, they are back and ready for action again.

Kevin Shirley is once again the producer. 'The Caveman' is best known for his production work with Iron Maiden and has recently been working on the second Inglorious album, due out around Spring 2017, and has worked closely with Bonamassa on every album that the guitarist has recorded since 2006s 'You & Me'.



Glenn said in a recent interview with Icon Vs. Icon:

"One thing I want to make clear to everybody across air nation is that Joe Bonamassa and I never fell out. It just happened that after 'Afterglow' was recorded and released in the fall of 2012, there was no touring schedule set. Being that there was no touring schedule set, I decided to leave the band simply because I needed to go back to my solo career.

"There was never falling out. Joe was continuing with his solo career and it just never worked out that we could do a lot of touring. Over the course of the years, we have spoken to each other and we had lunch in the spring. We said: 'Wouldn't it be great to make another record? Maybe the time is right to do that?'

"There's certain times when people get back together for reunions and if they have their material, they have a good insight.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.
