Hopefully.

We can all hope for a tour this Summer now !!! Glad to see Glenn rocking again with a REAL band and not one of those compilation mish moshes where we get two songs from each performer.

Relieved

I think it's more a feeling of relief than anything that I'm feeling right now!
Looks like the only scoop here is the name. But I have to say, I love the fact that it's a trio, there are some good power trios out there right now, (Winery Dogs, KXM, and now California Breed)and that makes me a happy bunny. Now let's hear the funkin' music!

Interesting branding and certainly different from the usual imagery associated with s called 'classic rock.' Let's hope this illustrates musical intention.

Most of us guessed this line up which is easier to manage than a five piece. I'd like to see this run and run. We'd all like to get a load of this band in each of our countries. I reckon we should be patient and book early when they do arrive.

From California Jam to California Breed. Here comes the sunshine.

Nice. Hopefully this announcement clears away the frustration that's been felt related to the break-up of BCC and the over-stretched hints & rumours about what might soon follow.

I'm happy that G & J went this way, working with the kid Watt instead of some more established chopmeisters. Cobb's involvement can't be bad. Judging by the trio's comments, the excitement to boost creativity has been there, as it was probably with BCC when they started. Unlike BCC, this might be a genuine win-win situation for all involved. The music might just turn out to be as fresh as the logo.

so the wait is over no great surprise however, the 15 second clip sounds impressive and suggests a heavy funk sound, which I much prefer to the retro BBC sound.
Can't wait to hear the complete album and hope to see the band on tour this spring/summer

Good luck lads

My point precisely David. But two of the the artists are usually associated with the term. The branding doesn't suggest that.

Yesss! When I received CR's newsletter today it put a big grin on my face. Finally! I'm getting really, really excited now about the new album and - hopefully - some great live shows this year!
The short snippet of "The Way" sounds great, it would be fantastic if there will be some songs with Glenn's softer voice on the new album as well (love his timbre). The video of Andrew Watt on Classic Rock reminds me of Prince who I love as well. Wouldn't mind some funky touch in that direction either

I'm just a bit curious about Derek Sherinian because he never gets mentioned anywhere. Was he too busy with other projects like JB or should the new band sound more different to older classic rock, so keyboards become less important?

Can't wait to hear one of the new songs in full length...

California Breed is a new band; a trio, was always going to be, so no keys required!

Yes, thanks David, but when BCC broke up we all thought that they just needed a replacement for Joe to carry on. Now plans have changed and this is a new band which is fine. I was only curious about what happened to Derek. Now I just checked his homepage and he seems to tour with JB now. Well, that has satisfied my curiousity, don't need to know more.

Now I'm just looking forward to April when the first single of California Breed will be released

Hi,
with that name and logo I suppose the US market and the US teens is the main target...that would explain young - unknown for us pensioners - guitar player. So I believe they will start the tour from Los Angeles. As always, I'm probably wrong though...

Here's a short article in the German ROCKS magazine.
Title: "Life after Joe"
Very appropriate...

...the press seem to have a fixation that this is BCC MK II - well, I don't think I'll get into trouble by telling you... it certainly is NOT.

Now I won't comment on it further, as I will get myself into trouble

Nope, not really, I can reassure you. The article very clearly says:

"BCC was yesterday - California Breed is the present."

So far I haven't read anything in the press that could lead to the misunderstanding that California Breed is a remake of BCC. So all is cool

Any idea, David, if Glenn will be doing a press tour this time?
