Black Label Society has released a video for the single "Ain't No Sunshine" from the Unblackened project. The video features Zakk Wylde (we think) with his Epiphone Masterbilt EF-500RCCE and Vinnie Paul (???) on lead guitar. In Zakk's own words, "It will leave you thinking WTF just happened!" All we know is, we like it!
Unblackened, the new live DVD, Blu-ray, and Digital Video from Black Label Society will be released on September 24, 2013 by Eagle Rock Entertainment.
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 Russel's "Song For You" and "Aint 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 "Stillborn," "The Blessed Hellride," "In This River," "Throwin' It All Away," "Losin' 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 to the concert, 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.
