Watch Black Country Communion Return in New ‘Collide’ Video

Subscribe to Ultimate Classic Rock on

Black Country Communion have released a video for “Collide,” the first track to appear from their comeback album BCCIV, which is due on Sept. 22. You can watch the video above.

Glenn Hughes, Joe Bonamassa, Derek Sherinian and Jason Bonham confirmed their reunion last year, after resolving the issues that had led to the band’s split following the release of its third album, Afterglow, in 2012. The upcoming LP was once again produced by Kevin Shirley, who helped put the band together in 2009.

“I just felt the time was right,” Bonamassa said. “When I contacted Glenn, Derek and Jason, they immediately agreed to give it a shot.”

Former Black Sabbath and Deep Purple member Hughes recently noted that the band “had around four months to write this album, and I think the results speak for themselves. All four of us wanted to make a record that stood up to the first three albums. However, the new album is more of a progression, as we wanted to be careful not to repeat the previous albums. A lot has happened since we recorded Afterglow. In many ways, the new album shows BCC with a much harder, riffier and bigger and bolder sound. I wanted the new album to physically shake your soul. It’s a wake-up call. If you’re looking for a folk album, this ain’t the one.”

Black Country Communion have also confirmed two U.K. concerts to accompany the release. They’ll play Wolverhampton Civic Hall on Jan. 2 and London’s Hammersmith Apollo on Jan. 4, 2018.
