News: Black Label Society Announce 2015 Tour Dates

2 min read

(UK) Following on from their highest ever UK charting album ‘Catacombs of the Black Vatican’ via Mascot Label Group earlier this year, Black Label Society have announced their 2015 tour dates.

Presale tickets will go on sale for O2 customers on Wednesday 8th October at 10am and via Live Nation on Thursday 9th October at 10am with the official on sale date Friday 10th October at 10am.

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.

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.
