Black Country Communion's New AfterglowGet ready for the new Black Country Communion album, Afterglow, coming out October 29. Joe Bonamassa compared the updated sound to a "jet engine when the pieces get in the room. It's a rock band," said Bonamassa, "it's a really powerful rock band."

Glenn Hughes told Planetrock.com that the band's time in the studio helped stretch their collective imaginations. "There are signatures that people will understand of what we are,” explains Hughes, "but there also nuances and a little quirkiness in the songs that are new to us. It’s a deeper album musically, for me, but it does not step away from the genre of which we are.”
