Black Country Communion will enter the studio in June to record the band's third album for release in late 2012. The hard blues-rock group comprises Glenn Hughes, Derek Sherinian, Joe Bonamassa and Jason Bonham.

Since the band's formation in 2010, they have released the acclaimed "Black Country" (2010) and "2" (2011) albums.

In a new interview with Artisan News, singer-bassist Hughes stated that he expects the musical direction of the band to continue in the same vein as the band's second release.

"We just did two albums back to back, both successful records. And our live DVD is out now. We're really, really happy with the progress of where we're going musically. So we're sort of on course now.

"It's kind of a continuation... There's gonna be some darker stuff on there, because the lyrics I'm writing are kind of dark. There may be some moments of drama in there, I like drama in the music. So the songs I have ready are definitely a continuation of [the first and the second albums]."

Thanks for the report to Michael Leonard, Gibson.com

    This band has a great approach to making music. It's just a shame it's not better. BCC is one band where the collective is not greater than the sum of its parts.

    that's some good news. I hope it sounds like the first album, "BCC 2" was kinda average to me.

    2 was alright, but the whole album was worth buying just for Little Secrets. I hope there's more of that kind of blues rock on this album. But then, BCC can't go wrong. It's Glenn Hughes, Joe Bonamassa and Derek Sherinian. That's like rock'n'roll heaven.
