Black Label Society To Release Unblackened In September

by Jon Bloggin' Rogo

Unblackened, a new live DVD, Blu-ray, and Digital Video from Black Label Society will be released on September 24th, 2013.

Additionally, Zakk’s label home, eOne Music will release the audio version of the Unblackened DVD under the same name. The double disc release will have six additional tracks not found on the DVD including two acoustic versions of Queen Of Sorrow and Won’t Find It Here, and covers of Leon Russell's Song For You and Ain't No Sunshine by Bill Withers.

Filmed and recorded earlier this year in high definition at Los Angeles’ Club Nokia, Unblackened is Black Label Society presenting their songs in a whole new light, with greater use of acoustic instrumentation. Wylde plays both guitar and piano, with Nick Catanase on guitar, John DeServio on bass/vocals, Chad Szeliga on drums, Derek Sherinian on keyboards/piano, and Greg Locascio providing additional vocals. Their stripped-down approach highlights the subtler nuances of the songwriting, without losing any of the fire or intensity. Classic tracks like StillbornThe Blessed HellrideIn This River, Throwin’ It All AwayLosin’ Your Mind, and many others are still punctuated by the stinging, searing solos that fans know and love, while showcasing the versatility of the band.

In addition show, Unblackened is rich in bonus material. A new interview with Zakk, photo gallery, music video for Losin’ Your Mind, and a feature with Wylde visiting HM Prison Stocken in the UK are all included.
