Black Label Society have released a stream of their new track titled Trampled Down Below.

It’ll feature on Zakk Wylde and co’s upcoming album Grimmest Hits, which is set to arrive on January 19.

In November, the band announced a European tour which will get under way in March – and speaking to Classic Rock, guitarist Wylde says there’s no place he’d rather be than out on the road.

He says: “I don’t have any problems with touring. I probably do 300 shows a year, and I love it. I go batshit crazy when I’m not playing.

“I hear these guys, like, ‘Oh, man, touring’s such a drag,’ and I’m like, ‘Well, what the fuck did you get into this for?’

“If you’re a musician, you go out and jam. Touring makes some guys insane, and I don’t get that. It keeps me sane, bro.”

Grimmest Hits is now available for pre-order. See the cover art, tracklist and the band’s tour dates below.
