Black Country Communion...
...is a devastating head-on collision between American
and British rock influences a true supergroup that
delivers a titanic rock experience greater than the sum of
its supremely talented parts.
The brainchild of producer Kevin Shirley (Black Crowes, Aerosmith,
Led Zeppelin), the band combines the rock lineage and forces of legendary
frontman and bass guitarist Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple, Black Sabbath,
Trapeze), master blues-rock guitarist Joe Bonamassa, powerhouse drummer
Jason Bonham (Led Zeppelin, Foreigner) and keyboardist Derek Sherinian
(Dream Theater, Billy Idol, Alice Cooper). Named after the industrial area in
Britain where both Hughes and Bonham were born and raised,
Black Country Communion began rehearsing and recording tracks written
by both Hughes and Bonamassa at Shangri-La Studios in early 2010.
Their new Self Titled Debut Album will release on September 21, 2010
and the band is planning a tour of select venues in 2011.
