California Breed call it quits

California Breed – the band formed in 2013 by Glenn Hughes, Jason Bonham and guitarist Andrew Watt – have called it quits.

Watt made the announcement via Facebook, writing, “To the California Breed fans here, I put everything I had into this band. All I can say is I was in it for the long haul.”

“I have a lot of new music for you guys...going to be announcing my plans soon.”

“I cannot tell you how much I appreciate you supporting us, buying our music, coming to our shows,” he adds. “This is not the is truly the beginning...cannot wait to continue the quest to bring rock n roll back to the people that are hungry for it. What an amazing learning experience for me here and introduction to an amazing world of people and fans that share love for the same thing.”

Hughes and Bonham formed California Breed with Watt from the ashes of supergroup Black Country Communion, which fell apart over Joe Bonamassa’s yearly solo touring schedule.

The band released their self-titled debut album last May, but Bonham bailed in August due to scheduling commitments and was replaced by Queens Of The Stone Age/Eagles Of Death Metal drummer Joey Castillo.

California Breed played an extensive fall tour of North America and Europe and performed their final show at Planet Rockstock in Wales on December 5.
