The GLENN HUGHES roadshow is getting into gear with his new studio album Resonate due in late October. A promotional video – all arty monochrome – was posted this week on his site for the track ‘Heavy’, and is… just that, although Glenn is filmed separately from the band who are all in the studio, with Chad Smith featured prominently. I quite enjoyed it while it was on, a touch vintage Purpley in some ways. There is a special edition of the CD with a three track promo DVD, and it looks like the Japanese get a bonus track. A vinyl edition is also promised. The tour reaches the UK in November, supported by Living Colour.
Pat Thrall turned up for a couple of Hughes / Thrall numbers at Glenn’s Las Vegas show in August, and if you can’t wait for the tour there is a professionally shot video of Glenn’s gig in Buenos Aires doing the rounds online.
And it also looks as if Black Country Communion will be returning to the scene next year, despite all the brickbats they were throwing at one another not so long ago. Glenn, Jason and Joe are it seems now back on message.
