Black Country Communion

Black Country Communion is an earth-shattering combination of American and British rock influences—a bona fide super group that conveys to the world a simple but important message: These four icons prove that Hard rock is alive and well in the 21st century. Their communion together forms something that is greater than the sum of its parts, creating a legacy being cemented within the halls of music history.

Black Country Communion’s inception took place when legendary front man and bass guitarist Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Trapeze) and world-renowned blues-rock guitarist Joe Bonamassa fused their styles on stage in Los Angeles in November 2009 for an explosive performance at Guitar Center’s King of the Blues event. With the help and guidance of producer Kevin Shirley (Black Crowes, Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin), they further added to their rock lineage by recruiting powerhouse drummer Jason Bonham (Led Zeppelin, Foreigner) and virtuoso keyboardist Derek Sherinian (Dream Theatre, Billy Idol, Alice Cooper). Taking their name from the industrial area in Britain, and the birthplace of both Hughes and Bonham, Black Country Communion released their self-titled debut album in 2010, and with that, unleashed their brand of take-no-prisoners hard rock to a world thirsting for music with substance. Following the release of another two studio albums, 2011’s well-received Black Country Communion 2 and 2012’s equally impressive Afterglow, plus a smoldering live CD released in 2011, Live Over Europe, the band has firmly established themselves as one of hard rock’s premier acts. The band took a hiatus in 2013 and focused on their successful solo careers. Recently, BCC recorded a new Studio album and they are excited to perform on stage together again on KTBA IV in February 2018. The reputation they’ve cultivated, not only as amazing songwriters, but as a powerful live act, is only exceeded by their dedication to their craft, and a willingness to challenge and motivate each other to make the best music they can.
