Glenn Hughes reveals Black Country Communion back “on ice” but there will be a fifth album
The Dead Daisies and Black Country Communion lead vocalist and bassist Glenn Hughes was recently interviewed along with guitarist Doug Aldrich by Eamon O’Neill for UK’s eonmusic.
Hughes was asked about the status of the band Black Country Communion. The “supergroup” also includes guitarist Joe Bonamassa, drummer Jason Bonham (Led Zeppelin, Foreigner, Sammy Hagar & The Circle) and keyboardist Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater, Alice Cooper, Billy Idol) with the last studio album BCCIV dating back to September 2017.
Hughes indicated: “It’s on ice, but again, there will be a number five [album]. I speak to Joe [Bonamassa] all the time, and we are talking about a window to do the next album. I don’t know when that will be, but there will be a number five album. We’ve managed to keep our chins up, and there’ll be number five at some point.”
In terms of his future plans with The Dead Daisies, Hughes indicated (with slight edits): “Please understand this, anything with The Dead Daisies, this is a workhorse that likes to travel – in style, of course – and it’s a wonderful opportunity to travel with David Lowy. And so we will be touring extensively, and the only way to do that, of course – for everybody reading this – is we have to do this appropriately; let’s get this pandemic under control. I believe now, I think it’s very obvious that the vaccine will be available, hopefully, so we’re looking forward, and I would say, to be safe, we’re looking at mid-next year  to get this thing going, realistically.”
