Black Label Society: 2015 Tour!

bls1BLACK LABEL SOCIETY ANNOUNCE 2015 UK TOUR

Following on from their highest ever UK charting album ‘Catacombs of the Black Vatican’ via Mascot Label Group (home to Joe Bonamassa, Volbeat, Gov’t Mule, Beth Hart, Vandenberg’s MoonKings) earlier this year, Black Label Society have announced their 2015 tour dates. Tickets on sale priced £20 regionally and £25 in London (subject to per-ticket charge plus order processing fee) and are available from http://www.livenation.co.uk or http://www.ticketmaster.co.uk

Bringing his guitar wizardry and guttural blues to the road; Zakk Wylde along with Dario Lorina (Guitar), John DeServio (Bass) and Jeff Fabb (Drums) will play 8 dates for the UK faithful; giving them the opportunity to see the brooding intensity, swampy nihilism and explosive swagger of ‘Catacombs..’ for the first time since their formidable main stage performance at this years’ Download Festival. Speaking of the new album experience Wylde explains “Every time you’re going to make a new record, it’s exciting. When you’re in the studio you can approach it like Salvador Dali where you’ve got a blank canvas in front of you. You can paint a little bit, sit back and look at it and go, ‘Oh man, let’s add a little more red over here, let’s make this darker over there.’ Because live? It’s a free-for-all. People are bleeding. There’s fire going on. You’re getting attacked by grizzly bears…”

If 2013s ‘Unblackened’ live album found Black Label Society in a mellower mood then ‘Catacombs of the Black Vatican’, their 10th studio album sees them throw down the gauntlet as the runaway beast that they really are in which Metal Hammer described the album as “a metal warrior returning to former glories”. From his 20 years with Ozzy Osbourne and his inception of Black Label Society in 1998 Wylde has widely been considered as one of modern rocks’ true guitar heroes with his taste for metal, blues, doom and southern rock. He recently won the accolade of ‘Metal Guru’ from Classic Rock as well as a ‘Golden God’ from Metal Hammer and ‘Best Guitarist’ from Revolver to cement this status. His collaborations have led to a string of multi-platinum albums, including Osbourne’s biggest selling ‘No More Tears’ for which Wylde wrote all the music.

“Pummels and delights…super-heavy” Classic Rock

“The living definition of a guitar god” Metal Hammer
