Black Country Communion is an English-American hard rock band based in Los Angeles, California. Formed in 2009, the band is a supergroup composed of bassist and vocalist Glenn Hughes, guitarist and vocalist Joe Bonamassa, drummer and backing vocalist Jason Bonham, and keyboardist Derek Sherinian. Originally formed by Hughes and Bonamassa with the help of producer Kevin Shirley, the group released its self-titled debut album in September 2010.
Black Country Communion (also known as Black Country) is the self-titled debut studio album by English-American hard rock band Black Country Communion. Recorded in early 2010 primarily at Shangri-La Studios in Malibu, California, it was produced by Kevin Shirley and released by Mascot Records in Europe on 20 September 2010, and by J&R Adventures in North America the following day. The album reached number 13 on the UK Albums Chart and number 54 on the US Billboard 200.
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. This is the band’s first studio album since 2013’s ‘Afterglow’. Just like its three predecessors, ‘BCCIV’ was overseen by Kevin Shirley, whose catalogue of hit records for Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden, Aerosmith, Journey, The Black Crowes, has made him the hottest producer that rock music has to offer.
BCCIV is the fourth studio album by English-American hard rock band Black Country Communion. Recorded in early 2017 at EastWest Studios in Hollywood, California, it was produced by Kevin Shirley and released on 22 September 2017 by Mascot Records in Europe and J&R Adventures in North America. The album debuted at number 102 on the US Billboard 200, and was the band's first release to reach the top ten of the UK Albums Chart when it entered at number 7 on the chart.

Black Country Communion - the band featuring Glenn Hughes, Jason Bonham, Derek Sherinian and Joe Bonamassa - have announced a new album that's scheduled for release later this year. BCCIV, the group's fourth LP, will be released on Sept. 22 and follows 2012's Afterglow. Black Country Communion have also announced a pair of . tour dates to support the record. They'll perform at the Wolverhampton Civic Hall on Jan. 2 and at the London Hammersmith Apollo on Jan. 4, 2018.
Supergroups usually have difficulty balancing the egos of all the members and such was the case with Black Country Communion, the quartet featuring Deep Purple's Glenn Hughes, blues hotshot Joe Bonamassa, drummer Jason Bonham, and keyboardist Derek Sherinian. The band fell apart in 2012 after the release of Afterglow, a year that also saw Bonamassa's solo star start to rise. It seemed like the band was history, but Bonamassa reached back out to Hughes in 2016, and the quartet cut the album that became 2017's BCCIV.
