Black Label Society return to UK

Black Label Society have confirmed an eight-date UK tour for February next year.

Zakk Wylde and co return to Britain to support 10th album Catacombs Of The Black Vatican – their highest-charting record to date.

Mainman Wylde says: “Every time you’re going to make a new record you can approach it like Salvador Dali, where you’ve got a blank canvas in front of you. You can paint a little bit, sit back and look at it and go, ‘Oh man, let’s add a little more red over here; let’s make this darker over there.’

“But live – it’s a free-for-all. People are bleeding. There’s fire going on. You’re getting attacked by grizzly bears…”

The band’s UK dates are followed by a string of shows across Europe, starting in Amsterdam on February 21 and ending in Lausanne on March 15. Tickets go on pre-sale via O2 at 10am today (Wednesday) and Live Nation (opens in new tab) at 10am on Thursday, then go on general sale at 10am on Friday.

BLS recently release a video for the piano-led version of their track Scars.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
