BCC has cultivated a reputation not only as amazing songwriters, but as a powerful live act which is only exceeded by their dedication to their craft, and a willingness to challenge and motivate each other to make the best music they can.

Now, seven years on from its inception, Bonamassa feels the time is right to bring the original BCC lineup back for album #4.

“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 last recorded the Afterglow album in 2013, so, in many ways, the new album shows BCC with a much harder, riffier and bigger and bolder sound.

If you’re looking for a folk album, this ain’t the one.”

In terms of content, “BCCIV” expands upon the progression that took place between the first three albums.

With an abundance of heavy riffs, undeniable hooks, melodic flair and infectious choruses, “BCCIV” is a spectacular album that gets bigger and bolder with repeated spins.

“I wanted the new album to physically shake your soul. It’s a wake-up call,” explains Hughes.

All songs on the new album were co-written by Glenn Hughes and Joe Bonamassa.

Glenn wrote all the lyrics on the album except for the song ‘The Last Song For My Resting Place’ which was written by Joe.
