Zakk Wylde Discusses New BLS ‘Un-Blackened’ DVD
Black Label Society frontman Zakk Wylde has announced that the band will begin working on a new DVD, jam-packed with acoustic material, and featuring several special guests, following their tours with Judas Priest and Gun N Roses.
“…we’re going to do an ‘un-blackened’ DVD,” Wylde told Uweekly. “You know, we did the two DVDs with the heavy show, so now we’re going to do the un-plugged DVD.”
Wylde and his BLS bandmates certainly have been keeping themselves busy in recent times; as well as the current tour, the band has released an acoustic Christmas EP, ‘Glorious Christmas Songs That Will Make Your Black Label Heart Feel Good,’ and have already begun recruiting several guest musicians for the upcoming DVD. Reportedly, Slash and Alice in Chains guitarist Jerry Cantrell are onboard for the project. “…we’re going to have some string sections in there, pedal steel guitars in the background, some guests … some of my rockstar buddies to sit in there and stuff like that. We’re setting that up while we’re doing the Priest thing.”
Proving once again that he is a complete workhorse, it has also been revealed that Wylde recorded a guest spot on the upcoming Black Veil Brides EP, ‘Rebels.’ Wylde features on a cover of the KISS song ‘Unholy.’
Also featuring a cover of cover of Billy Idol’s ‘Rebel Yell’ and an original track, the 3-song EP is set for release on Christmas.
