Jason Bonham and Glenn Hughes have launched a new band, California Breed, from the ashes of supergroup Black Country Communion.
The pair are joined by guitarist Andrew Watt for the new project, which will release its self-titled debut album on May 20.
Hughes was introduced to Watt through his friend Julian Lennon.
"It's proper rock," says Hughes, "but at the same time it's very now. Andrew is as influenced by Mick Ronson as he is Jimmy Page."
"This kid is amazing," adds Bonham. "The first time we met, I thought he looked like the white Jimi Hendrix. And he plays in the studio like he's on stage!"
Produced by Dave Cobb (Jamey Johnson, Rival Sons, Shooter Jennings), California Breed was recorded at Cobb's Nashville studio and features equal co-writing credits among the three-man lineup.
California Breed have just released the video for the lead single, “Sweet Tea.”
