Black Country Communion, the supergroup comprised of Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple), Jason Bonham, Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater) and Joe Bonamassa, have released 'Confessor,' the first single from their upcoming album, 'Afterglow.' The disc will be released on Oct. 30.

'Afterglow,' their third album in as many years, was produced by Kevin Shirley, who also helmed their previous two efforts. The record's 11 tracks were recorded in a whirlwind five-day session. It is also likely to be their last. Earlier in the month, Hughes said that Bonamassa's busy solo career has prevented the band from going on the road.

However, Hughes has already begun another project with some heavy hitters, forming the Kings of Chaos with Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott and two former members of Guns N' Roses, Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum. The band hopes to tour exotic locales and record EPs consisting of both covers and original material.

Fans can download 'Confessor' for free from the band's website in exchange for their e-mail address.
