BLACK LABEL SOCIETY has debuted a brand new music video for their newest hit single, “Angel of Mercy.” Directed by long time collaborator, Justin Reich of The Antimatter Studio, the video depicts a stripped down version of the wall of sound that is widely associated with the band. The single was recently performed on Late Night With Seth Meyers, which was the first time the band performed on network television in their decorated tenure.
The band will embark on a stretch of headlining tour dates across the U.S. starting on July 17th in Cincinnati before eventually wrapping up at the Sunshine Theater in Albuquerque on August 4th. Wovenwar and Kyng have been tapped to support, click here for all tour dates. Black Label Society has also been announced on the first annual KNOTFEST with Slipknot, Five Finger Death Punch and Volbeat.
Catacombs of the Black Vatican was released on April 8th, 2014 and debuted at #5 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart and #1 on the Rock and Independent Charts. The new effort is already accumulating critical praise with outlets like LOUDWIRE declaring “Wylde’s guitar playing has always been at an extremely high level, but the instrument that’s improved steadily over the years is his voice.” New Jersey’s AQUARIAN WEEKLY states, “This is Black Label Society at its finest!”
In addition to being on the cover of the last month’s issue of Guitar Player Magazine, and holding the Guitar World Magazine MVP award four years straight, Wylde has been bestowed with such accolades as “Best Rock Guitarist” from Guitar Player, “Metal Guru” from the recently held Classic Rock awards in the UK, “Golden God” by Metal Hammer, the “Best Guitarist” Award from Revolver Magazine. Wylde has proven time and time again that his songwriting, guitar prowess, and on-stage persona, along with his larger-than-life personality, have made him a force to be reckoned with.
Black Label Society continues to enthrall fans around the globe, and Catacombs of the Black Vatican is another incredible piece in the band’s catalog.
