Mastered and ready for June release, Black Country Communion's 2nd album, BCC2, is longer, harder and darker, according to singer and bassist Glenn Hughes.

BCC 2 70 mins. Long. A Rock 'n Roll Rollercoaster... organic... darker than "1"... my darkest lyrics since Addiction," said Hughes via Facebook. (Addiction was Hughes 5th solo album. Released in 1996 it is the album that is regarded as his heaviest, both musically and lyrically. Many of the songs focus on Hughes drug addiction that he experienced through the 1980s).

On Thursday, Hughes mentioned he had a mastered CD in hand. This comes after commenting that "BCC has given me a new belief in Rock 'n Roll'" And yesterday (Friday Feb 25), Hughes comments that:

Joe Rocks [sic] harder than ever... and I get to sing some desperate blues... this album has woken the Rock

Hughes is not the only one excited about BCC 2. Kevin Shirley is reported to have said it's the "best album of his career." The Caveman, Kevin Shirley, has himself said on Facebook, "...it's sounding awesome. Anyone ready for some big Bonham drums."

Desperate blues, Joe Bonamassa rocking hard and big Bonham drums. Sounds like BCC2 is an album to look forward too.

Leaving behind recording, Black Country Communion announced their first two North American shows this week. BCC will perform two shows in California before beginning their European tour in June, appearing in San Diego June 9th and Anaheim June 10th. More shows will be announced.
