Black Country Communion named Best New Band

Black Country Communion are on a roll.

With two new albums in a year, and a new live DVD on the horizon, the supergroup – comprised of bassist/vocalist Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple, Trapeze, Black Sabbath), blues rock guitarist/vocalist Joe Bonamassa, drummer Jason Bonham (Led Zeppelin), and keyboardist Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater) – has earned a real nod from some hard rock experts.

VH1 Classic's That Metal Show name BCC as the #1 rock/metal band of the last decade.

Each of the show’s three hosts - Eddie Trunk, Jim Florentine and Don Jamieson - made their own Top 5 list of best rock/metal bands, and these were then compiled into a master Top 5 list from the 15 bands.

BCC will release its first concert DVD, "Live Over Europe," on October 24 (Blu-ray to follow November 15).

The 2-DVD live set was filmed with 14 HD cameras and 5.1 surround sound during the band’s debut tour in the summer of 2011. Over three nights, playing to packed venues in the German cities of Hamburg, Munich and Berlin, the 18-song set list (17 originals and 1 cover) hits on both of BCC’s albums – 2010’s debut and 2011’s sophomore release. Bonus features include an exclusive 28-page collector’s booklet and DVD with a 20-minute “behind the scenes” featurette and photo collection.
