New Black Country Communion album could be the last, Glenn Hughes forms new supergroup Kings Of Chaos

Black Country Communion vocalist and bassist Glenn Hughes has revealed that their brand new album, ‘Afterglow,’ is likely to be their last.

Speaking to ABC News Radio, Hughes revealed that this may be their last album because he needs to be in a band that can tour on a regular basis but due to Joe Bonamassa’s heavy solo touring, it is impossible to do.

“This may be the [band’s] last album,” he declared. “I hate to break it to you, but it just may be, because I need to be in a band that tours on a regular basis.”

“If I had a magic wand,” he added, “I would wave it over everybody’s head and go, ‘Hey, you guys, we’re gonna go and do 200 shows [in 2013] and we’re gonna be a huge rock ‘n’ roll band globally. It’s not gonna happen.”

Hughes had this feeling as he wrote ‘Afterglow’ and had this to say about the songs: “I figured that if this was to be the last album…then I need to come in with some pretty wild and epic tracks,” he noted. “So, I’m really proud of this album.”

Hughes also went on to tell ABC News Radio that he has formed a new band called Kings Of Chaos with members of the Rock N Roll All Stars tour that performed in South America. The band’s line-up includes Joe Elliot (Def Leppard), Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum (Guns N’ Roses) and Steve Stevens (Billy Idol and Michael Jackson).

The group plan to tour mostly, starting in April 2013, but they will be releasing a series of EPs with covers and original songs. “On those EPs there will be three covers and one original song. And…the lineups with the Kings of Chaos, vocally, will change. The core band will be the same. So, it’s gonna be always moving and changing.” Hughes suggested to ABC that each disc may focus on a different genre, such as punk, classic rock and alternative rock.

The band’s debut recordings (minus Hughes who is featured solo) will be featured on a tribute album to Deep Purple’s ‘Machine Head’ titled ‘Re-Machined.’ The album will feature specially recorded tracks from Jimmy Barnes and Joe Bonamassa, Black Label Society, Chickenfoot, former Deep Purple Mk III member Glenn Hughes with Chad Smith of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Carlos Santana and Jacoby Shaddix and Steve Vai.
