California Breed — Glenn Hughes, Jason Bonham and Andrew Watt — Discuss Debut Album, Part 5

In the exclusive new video below, all three members of California Breed — vocalist/bassist Glenn Hughes, drummer Jason Bonham and guitarist Andrew Watt — discuss their self-titled debut album, which was released today, May 20, via Frontiers Records.

California Breed was produced by Dave Cobb (Jamey Johnson, Rival Sons, Shooter Jennings) — who also appears in the video — and recorded at his Nashville studio. Hughes and Bonham played together for several years in Black Country Communion; Watt — who is 23 — was introduced to Hughes by Julian Lennon in 2013.

This is the fifth in a series of exclusive clips related to the band's new album. Visit GuitarWorld.com next week for the final episode, and look under RELATED CONTENT to the left to see the first four installments.

The album will be available as a CD, digital download and a deluxe CD/DVD featuring the bonus song “Solo,” two video clips and a documentary.

The band will announce U.K., European and U.S. tours in the near future. Stay tuned for updates!
