BLACK LABEL SOCIETY – Working On New Album

BLACK LABEL SOCIETY madman Zakk Wylde chatted with Meltdown of Detroit’s WRIF radio station and they discussed the development of the band’s next studio album, which will be the follow-up to “Grimmest Hits”, released in January 2018 through Entertainment One (eOne).

“We’re in [my home studio] Black Vatican right now,” Zakk said.

“We’re just working on the new record — new BLACK LABEL flavored country donuts for the next album.

“During the COVID, obviously, we worked on the recently released ‘None More Black’ box set, and then we also tracked about 30 songs,” he continued. “So we’ve got that. We’re just putting the finishing touches on some stuff right now. We’re gonna be mastering that in a little bit. So it’ll probably come out in November.”

Wylde also talked about BLACK LABEL SOCIETY‘s touring plans for the coming months, saying: “I guess we’re doing [the] Sturgis [motorcycle rally] with BLACK LABEL. That’s in August. And then in all of October and November, we’re gonna be going around the States. And then we’re doing a BLACK LABEL Christmas-new Year’s Eve, and we end up with the Arizona chapter. That’s what’s on the agenda for now. Hopefully everybody has the shot and then we can all have everything back to normal again, and we can start doing tours again.”

Asked if he is “jonesing” to hit the stage again after being off the road for so long, Wylde said: “Put it this way: for the last 20-plus years, the longest I’ve been home was probably maybe two weeks. So the COVID break, I’ve been enjoying spending time with the kids. And I wouldn’t trade my situation for anything. I love touring. I love rolling out and seeing our BLACK LABEL family everywhere, rolling with Ozz, then my ‘Gen Axe’ brothers, and then when we do the ‘Experience Hendrix’ thing. I’m always touring — whether it’s with OzzBLACK LABELZAKK SABBATH‘Generation Axe’‘Experience Hendrix’. I’m usually home about less than two weeks [before] I’m back out on the road with something else. I love it. Every night I get up on stage, I look forward to it. This is the longest I’ve been home in 20-plus years.
