Black Label Society have set a new date for their Unblackened
DVD filming. The concert will take place on March 6 at Club Nokia in Los Angeles and will feature Zakk Wylde on piano and guitar along with a string section, pedal steel, and special guests. Tickets go on sale Friday.
Nick Catanese from BLS spoke with Sonic State
at NAMM about the long-talked about album. "You can take a song that you've played thousands of times and rearrange it, and all of a sudden it's something totally fresh. The attitude of the songs doesn't change when we play them acoustically — the tunes are gritty regardless."
Wylde has been planning the show since last year. "We're gonna do the whole thing with a four-piece string section, a pedal steel guy, and I'm gonna have some of my musician buddies sit in on some of the songs and stuff like that," Wylde told Blabbermouth
. "We're gonna have two solid weeks of rehearsal and then we're gonna knock this thing out." Stay tuned for details.
