Watch the official “Red Sun” lyric video:

“Red Sun” is a lyrical journey through the depths of the soul, echoing the struggles and revelations that come with life’s challenges. The song’s rich narrative and compelling melody are enhanced by the band’s signature blend of hard rock and blues, marking yet another milestone in their storied career. “This band allows me to embrace all of it,” comments Bonamassa. “It’s funny because the four musicians up here – everybody brings a certain thing to this that’s very specific. Every part is irreplaceable. For me, it’s about playing old-style rock guitar, loud.”

Hughes adds, “We make music for the five of us. We make music that we love and like, hoping it registers with everyone else. We don’t make it for record companies, or this guy or that guy.” Sherinian credits producer Kevin Shirley for keeping the band’s creative energies focused, adding, “We got to give Kevin Shirley massive credit because he controls. He keeps it all flowing.”

“Red Sun” is a profound piece in Black Country Communion’s discography, showcasing the band’s growth and mutual respect. It stands as a beacon of their shared philosophy — to create music that is authentic, heartfelt, and a reflection of their collective experiences and musical prowess.
