Black Country Communion
Collide riff driven first single from BCCIV
Collide riff driven first single from BCCIV just what is required as Summer fades into Autumn. The news that Black Country Communion are releasing BCCIV on 22nd September via Mascot Label Group fills the world with a rich golden album cover of a fiery Phoenix rising, the album artwork reflecting the coming together of the supergroup four years after the release of Afterglow. The original quartet is back together again, Glenn Hughes, Joe Bonamassa Derek Sherinian and Jason Bonham joining forces to deliver rock that fills the room.
The album BBCIV will definitely cause a stir, welcomed by fans of Glenn Hughes and Joe Bonamassa and the Black Country Communion hard rock driven explosion of sonic delights. As Joe says; “If you’re looking for a folk album, this ain’t the one.”
The album was written over four months, expanding and deepening the sound on the three previous albums. All ten tracks on the album are co-written by Glenn Hughes and Joe Bonamassa. Glenn wrote all the lyrics on the album except for the song ‘The Last Song For My Resting Place’ written by Joe.
We have a taster as the first single Collide is released.
Opening the album, the single lays down the ground the album will travel over, on a collision course of being the song to set the pace of the album. Collide was a collision of the original riff played by Glenn Hughes, written on the first day of working on BCCIV, then Joe came over and by lunch the song was complete. A collision of talents of Glen and Joe have created a riff driven number that swirls with rocking force through the speaker and cascades in tonal shape and force.
Opening with a count we have the opening chords and then Glenn’s vocals power in. With a controlled screech of determination Jason’s drums pick up the groove with a cascade of symbols and the guitar and bass drive Collide on to a point of no return. The throttle is eased and Derek’s keys add a tonal contrast. We have sonic distortion as the lead break pulls you deep into the music with its classic feel with added gritty edginess rock of the twenty-first century. After just over four minutes you are left breathless with anticipation of what the next nine tracks will bring to the speaker. A date for your diary is definitely 22nd September for the big reveal.
I am confident that Collide is a true reflection of the sound tempo and tonal shape of BCCIV. As Glenn explains “I wanted the new album to physically shake your soul. It’s a wake-up call.”
Collide riff driven first single from BCCIV Black Country Communion back together for the 4th studio album. Collide ensures a collision course for a torrent of accolades that will challenge the Autumn fall.
