Black Country Communion, the Anglo-American rock group comprising vocalist/bassist Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple, Trapeze), drummer Jason Bonham (Led Zeppelin, Foreigner), Derek Sherinian (Black Country Communion) and blues-rock guitarist/vocalist Joe Bonamassa, will release its third album, Afterglow, on October 30 (one day earlier internationally).

During an interview last Thursday with ABC News Radio, Hughes revealed that Afterglow may be Black Country Communion's last CD due to Bonamassa's heavy solo touring commitments. "I hate to break it to you, but it just may be, because I need to be in a band that tours on a regular basis," he said.

"If I had a magic wand," he added, "I would wave it over everybody's head and go, 'Hey, you guys, we're gonna go and do 200 shows [in 2013] and we're gonna be a huge rock 'n' roll band globally. It's not gonna happen."

Hughes explained that the prospect of Afterglow being Black Country Communion's swan song helped inspire him to write what he believes are some of the band's strongest tunes for the new record.

"I figured that if this was to be the last album...then I need to come in with some pretty wild and epic tracks," he noted. "So, I'm really proud of this album."
