Black Country Communion have released a new single and lyric video ahead of their forthcoming fifth album.

The hard rocking supergroup, featuring vocalist/bassist Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple, Black Sabbath), guitarist Joe Bonamassa, drummer Jason Bonham (Led Zeppelin) and keyboardist Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater, Alice Cooper, Billy Idol) describe new track 'Red Sun' as a "lyrical journey through the depths of the soul, echoing the struggles and revelations that come with life's challenges".

The new single comes ahead of the band's highly anticipated and aptly-titled fifth studio album, 'V', due on 14th June.

Bonamassa says of the collective: "This band allows me to embrace all of it. It's funny because the four musicians up here - everybody brings a certain thing to this that's very specific. Every part is irreplaceable. For me, it's about playing old-style rock guitar, loud."

Hughes adds: "We make music for the five of us. We make music that we love and like, hoping it registers with everyone else. We don't make it for record companies, or this guy or that guy."

Speaking about the new album, producer Kevin Shirley said: "For a band that started out as a collection of the best practitioners of their instruments, they very quickly found a unique sound.

"This time around, it has more purpose, the riffs are tougher, and there are hooks! Yes, hooks! It's the most cohesive record, full of soul and grit, and I think this is the one that's going to be the benchmark for Black Country Communion."
