BLACK LABEL SOCIETY’S NEW VIDEO “OVERLORD”

MAKES ITS WORLD PREMIERE ON VEVO TODAY 

BLS’ FIRST-EVER CHRISTMAS TUNE “THE FIRST NOEL” AVAILABLE ON

 iTUNES NOW; PROCEEDS FROM TRACK DONATED TO THE ZAKK AND BARBARANNE WYLDE FOUNDATION AT ST. JUDE’S 

(New York, NY) – Black Label Society has partnered with VEVO for the world premiere of BLS’ hysterical new video “Overlord.”  As of today, Monday, November 1st, the video can be viewed here.  The video, directed by Master Cylinder, finds guitar legend Zakk Wylde and his Black Label Society in a satire of 70’s Kung Fu movies.  Wylde is featured as the Bruce Lee-type action hero (yellow jumpsuit and all) in hot pursuit of the Overlord…in this case an old lady who holds the key to a very special prize.  “Overlord” will be the next single from Black Label Society’s latest album ORDER OF THE BLACK; it follows the breakthrough Top 20 rock radio track, “Parade Of The Dead.” 

In other Black Label Society news, the first-ever BLS Christmas tune, “The First Noel” is available now on iTunes.  The track is a beautiful instrumental which highlights Wylde’s prowess on the acoustic guitar.  Black Label Society’s proceeds from sales of the single will be donated to The Zakk and Barbaranne Wylde Foundation at St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, a charity The Wyldes have long supported.  Click here to purchase the track. 

Black Label Society’s first new album in four years, ORDER OF THE BLACK, was released via Entertainment One in North America in August, 2010 and debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart.  Black Label Society is currently headlining The Black Label Berzerkus, Zakk Wylde’s own North American package tour featuring Black Label Society, Children Of Bodom, Clutch and 2Cents (please see below for tour dates). 

About Zakk Wylde/Black Label Society

In the two decades since Ozzy Osbourne hired him away from his job at a New Jersey gas station, Zakk Wylde has established himself as a guitar icon known and revered the world over.  Wylde has won nearly every guitar award imaginable, graced countless magazine covers and is a major influence to a new battalion of rock guitarists.  Writing and recording with Osbourne led to multi-platinum success, inspiring him to create the now iconic Black Label Society in 1998.  In the decade plus since, BLS has turned the notion of what a rock band should be upside down by inspiring legions of fans (known as Berserkers) all over the world to follow the mantra: Strength, Determination, Merciless, Forever (SDMF for short).  Wylde and his Berserkers have established a heavy metal institution true to the vision of uncompromising, unfiltered and unrestrained rock n’ roll.  To date, Black Label Society has sold more than 3.5 million albums worldwide and continues to be a massive presence on the worldwide touring and merchandising cuits.
