Glenn Hughes and Jason Bonham's California Breed Releasing Album

(Classic Rock) California Breed, the new band featuring former Black Country Communion members Glenn Hughes and Jason Bonham, release their self-titled debut album via Frontiers Records on May 19th in Europe and May 20th in the U.S.

Featuring a dozen all-new songs and produced by Dave Cobb, whose work Hughes fell in love with thanks to Rival Sons' Pressure And Time album, it's edgier, chunkier and heavier than any of the three BCC studio releases.

"I call what we do 'rock swagger' - this is a very sexual album," announces bassist/vocalist Hughes grandly. "I don't want to sound like David [Coverdale] here but this band is a sexual machine."

The introduction of a virtual unknown, 23-year-old New York guitarist called Andrew Watt, helps to propel Hughes and Bonham in a more contemporary though no less hard-rocking direction.

"Andrew is more influenced by Jimmy Page than Ritchie Blackmore," differentiates Hughes, "and he also loves Mick Ronson and John Frusciante [of the Red Hot Chili Peppers]. We speak the same language and we co-wrote the songs together. He's ready for an opportunity like this, but above all Andrew is someone that actually wants to play 120 shows a year." A lot more with Hughes here.
