I am looking forward to this album release and hoping to see you all on the great highway in 2024.”

V has already begun to make waves in the music community, receiving a perfect score from Rock N Load, which describes it as “a killer album from start to finish, a true testament of what happens when musicians of this caliber get together in a room and thrash it out.” Critics praise the album for its dynamic and powerful sound, affirming Black Country Communion as “a tornado of a band that sonically devastates everything in their way.”

Blues Rock Review hailed the album in a glowing review, noting, “These guys don’t just write songs for the sake of it, every track takes you on a journey with them, teasing you as they weave their magic, breaking down when you least expect it, building up to a crescendo and pushing you right over the edge, this album has it all and then some.”

“This album exceeds the sum of its parts and has captured possibly the
finest recordings from their collaborative journey together.”

“V may represent their fifth album, but it could equally denote V for Victory.”

V features a collection of tracks that resonate with the band’s signature blend of hard rock and soul-stirring blues, from the powerful lyrics and profound musical composition of Red Sun, to the electrifying single “Enlighten” and the funk-heavy “Stay Free.” Penned by Hughes and Bonamassa, each song takes listeners on a journey, weaving a narrative of power, introspection, and revival.
