Los Angeles, CA (May 6, 2011) -- Today, the English-American rock supergroup Black Country Communion (BCC) launch the release of their first single “The Outsider,” available for free download at http://bit.ly/bccommunion. BCC, featuring the talents of bassist and vocalist Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple, Trapeze, Black Sabbath), blues-rock guitarist Joe Bonamassa, drummer Jason Bonham (Led Zeppelin), and keyboardist Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater), will release their sophomore album 2 on June 14, 2011 on the J&R Adventures label.

“On 2, you can hear the band own their music, own their sound, and it is an astonishing musical group unlike any other and they are absolutely the kings of their genre,” says producer Kevin Shirley. “I wanted to explore more of the Bonham sound and more importantly each member of the band gets a unique opportunity to shine, but it has the distinct sound that is BCC.”

Track Listing:
1. The Outsider
2. Man In The Middle
3. The Battle For Hadrian’s Wall
4. Save Me
5. Smokestack Woman
6. Faithless
7. An Ordinary Son

9. Little Secret
10. Crossfire
