Black Country Communion, the Anglo-American classic rock group featuring the talents of blues rock guitarist/vocalist Joe Bonamassa, bassist/vocalist Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple, Trapeze, Black Sabbath), drummer Jason Bonham (Led Zeppelin), and keyboardist Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater), has announced the title of their much-anticipated second album. The album will be called "2" and will be released in the UK on June 13th via Mascot Records, followed by a US release on June 14th on the J&R Adventures label.

The album track listing is as follows:

1. The Outsider
2. Man In The Middle
3. I Can See Your Spirit
4. The Battle For Hadrian's Wall
5. Save Me
6. Cold
7. Smokestack Woman
8. Faithless
9. An Ordinary Son
10. Little Secret
11. Crossfire
12. Crawl

On June 9, the band will kick off a US Summer Tour in San Diego, CA. In July, BCC will embark on a European tour that will take in concerts at Llandudno Cymru Arena (Saturday 23rd July), London's High Voltage Festival (Sunday 24th July), Leeds O2 Academy (Tuesday 26th July), Newcastle O2 Academy (Wednesday 27th July), Glasgow 02 Academy (Friday 29th July), and the Manchester Academy (Saturday 30th July).

The Summer 2011 live shows are long overdue and very highly anticipated, as the only live shows the band have performed previously was when they played two sold out concerts in Wolverhampton and London during late December 2010.

When the band performed in the heart of the Black Country at Wolverhmapton's Civic Hall in front of a 3,000 strong crowd on Dec. 29, 2010, the Birmingham Mail newspaper described the band's performance as "rip-roaring" and "breathtaking, while the Express & Star newspaper said, "From the moment Hughes' thunderous bass riff introduced ‘Black Country' it was like a torch had been lit underneath the famous old venue, the ghosts of rock Christmases past roaring into the present!"

Black Country Communion released its self-titled debut album in September 2010 to rave reviews. Mojo magazine gave the album four stars and Classic Rock magazine said it's "Possibly, the best hard rock album of 2010." Music Radar described it as "a potent and stomping collection of riff-heavy rockers that will undoubtedly stun listeners."

During its first week of release in the UK, the album hit the #1 spot in the Official Top 40 Rock Album Chart, and also hit #13 in the Official Top 40 Album Chart and #2 in the UK's Official Top 40 Indie Album Chart. The album was voted #3 in Classic Rock magazine's "Critics Album of the Year" poll, while Planet Rock radio listeners crowned BCC as the Best New Band of 2010.
