Zakk Wylde’s Black Label Society will be touring this April, it has been announced.
The “Unblackened” tour — inspired by a one-night-only concert at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, captured for a live CD/DVD release two years ago — is coming soon to a town near year.
The dates will feature intimate versions of some of the band’s most popular songs, as well as tracks from Wylde’s solo album Book Of Shadows and his southern rock band Pride & Glory.
“I always wanted to take ‘Unblackened’ on the road, [but] we just didn’t have the time until now,” says Wylde. “You can take a song that you’ve played thousands of times and rearrange it, and all of a sudden it’s something totally fresh. The attitude of the songs doesn’t change when we play them acoustically — the tunes are gritty regardless.”
Support on the tour will come from Wino.
