Black Label Society To Shoot ‘Un-Blackened’ DVD After Current Tour
Zakk Wylde previously mentioned plans for an acoustic based DVD with some guest musicians like Slash and Alice in Chains' Jerry Cantrell. According to the Black Label Society frontman, they will be executing that plan in the very near future.
Zakk Wylde has been keeping it metal out on the road with Judas Priest and Thin Lizzy, while simultaneously showcasing BLS' affinity for lighter fare with releases like their acoustic 'The Song Remains Not The Same' album and the just released Christmas EP 'Glorious Christmas Songs That Will Make Your Black Label Heart Feel Good.'
In his recent interview with UWeekly, the former Ozzy axeman revealed that the two previously mentioned projects are just the beginning of Black Label's exploration with their lighter tendencies:
"Well, actually ‘cause we did the mellow thing, so basically that’s the precursor because we’re going to do an 'un-blackened' DVD. You know, we did the two DVDs with the heavy show, so now we’re going to do the un-plugged DVD. So, 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."
The "rock star buddies" Wylde is referring to could be Slash and Jerry Cantrell, who Wylde previously name-dropped in May when he initially mentioned the 'Un-Blackened' project. Black Label wraps up their supporting role with Judas Priest in December and finishes with a five date run of dates opening for Guns N' Roses on their U.S. tour.
