Black Label Society Plan to Release New Studio Album in April
Over the weekend in Los Angeles, the Bass Player Live! Concert & Awards Show honored Black Sabbath‘s Geezer Butler. Several rockers teamed up to jam, and Butler joined in on the last couple of songs. Among the numerous luminaries in attendance was Black Label Society’s Zakk Wylde. In a red carpet interview, Wylde revealed details about the next BLS studio album.
Wylde says the album should be out in April 2014 and when asked about it, he said, “It’s all going to be all completely the same as the last nine records, except just different song titles,” then laughed.
Loudwire also caught up with Wylde on the red carpet, and he discussed the evening’s performance. “It’s just awesome and great,” said Wylde. “All the guys that are playing are amazing and I’m proud to be a part of it. I love Geezer and whether I had to come down here and shine his shoes or get up there when he jams, I’d do it for him.”
During the concert, Wylde played on several Sabbath songs with the all-star band, including ‘The Wizard,’ ‘War Pigs,’ ‘Fairies Wear Boots’ and the finale ‘N.I.B.’
Black Label Society’s last studio album was ‘Order of the Black’ back in 2010. They released the live DVD/CD ‘Unblackened’ earlier this year. It featured stripped down versions of songs from throughout the band’s history. The CD version has six songs that are not on the DVD, including covers of Bill Withers ‘Ain’t No Sunshine’ and Leon Russell’s ‘A Song for You.’
