Black Label Society’s ‘Unblackened' Streaming

Black Label Society’s ‘Unblackened' Streaming -

Prior to its release date, due Sept. 24, Black Label Society’s much anticipated live DVD ‘Unblackened’ is streaming via Pandora Premieres (click to listen).

Frontman Zakk Wylde told Billboard that ‘Unblackened,’ which was shot at Club Nokia in Los Angeles back in March, isn’t just an ‘acoustic disc,’ he said:

That’s why we called it ‘Unblackened’ instead of ‘Unplugged’ or some acoustic-type thing,” Wylde explains.

That’s not what it is. It’s not me just sitting around with an acoustic (guitar) or whatever, playing real quiet and pretty. This stuff is intense, too. And I’m playing piano. There’s some electric slide guitar. There’s a bunch of Marshalls for some of the choruses. It’s just another way to hear Black Label Society, y’know?”

‘Unblackened’ will be made available in both DVD and CD, with the CD set to include six additional tracks not featured on the DVD.

In related news BLS continue to work on the follow up to their 2011 album ‘The Song Remains Not the Same.’

It’ll have all the heavy riffs and other stuff everyone knows and loves,” Wylde reveals to Billboard (via LoudWire).

“‘Order of the Black’ was already three years ago, which is pretty insane. But the whole time we’ve been working, touring and stuff like that; it’s not like we’ve been sitting around the house. It’s crazy because back in the beginning of Black Label we were pumping out an album a year and constantly touring. But don’t mind doing it this way, either.”
