CD/DVD Releases: New Supergroup Settles On Name, Releases Artwork For Debut

Posted on Thursday, July 08 @ 23:05:00 UTC by nightowl

The new supergroup featuring former Deep Purple bassist/singer Glenn Hughes alongside Led Zeppelin reunion drummer Jason Bonham, Dream Theater's former keyboardist Derek Sherinian and guitarist Joe Bonamassa has settled on a new name: Black Country Communion.

And today the band revealed the artwork for their debut album, as seen above. 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."
