You might laugh at this but I am still a little bit sore in the feet from my four days of wandering the recent NY Comic Con that took place over the past weekend at the Javits Center. With the borderline exhaustion slowly fading away I was happy to find some easy to post notices such as the new that Zakk Wylde will be bringing the Black Label Society to the masses with a tour that features both Corrosion Of Conformity and Red Fang as support. Take a look at the press release and all the dates below.
The Press Release:
BLACK LABEL SOCIETY will embark on a North American tour this winter in support of its upcoming album, “Grimmest Hits”. Joining them on the trek will be CORROSION OF CONFORMITY on all dates, with EYEHATEGOD and RED FANG appearing at select shows.
A special BLABBERMOUTH.NET presale for all shows will begin on Tuesday, October 10 at 2:00 p.m. local time and end on Thursday, October 12 at 10:00 p.m. local time.

“Grimmest Hits” will be released January 19, 2018 via Entertainment One (eOne).
The “Room Of Nightmares” video, which can be seen below, was directed by BLACK LABEL SOCIETY’s longtime collaborator Justin Reich. The song is available on all digital service providers and streaming services. It is also an iTunes instant-gratification track, meaning fans who pre order the album on iTunes will receive “Room Of Nightmares” as an instant download.
BLACK LABEL SOCIETY’s last studio album, “Catacombs Of The Black Vatican”, sold around 26,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 5 on The Billboard 200 chart. “Catacombs Of The Black Vatican” was released in Europe on April 7, 2014 via Mascot Label Group and one day later in North America through eOne Music. Prior to the release of “Catacombs Of The Black Vatican”, BLACK LABEL SOCIETY amicably parted ways with longtime guitarist Nick Catanese and replaced him with Dario Lorina (LIZZY BORDEN).
BLACK LABEL SOCIETY is: Zakk Wylde – Vocals/Guitar, John DeServio – Bass, Dario Lorina – Guitar, Jeff Fabb – Drums

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve always had a good time when I’ve caught BLS in concert over the years and since its been a couple of years since I’ve done that, I’m going to try and get to the show that’s hitting the PST. That’s the PlayStation Theater to you out-of-towners. The whole lineup is sound for this one and works together well based on the brand of crunch that each of them bring to the table. Sadly, EHG is not on the NYC date as they are one band that I have not yet seen. I’m still not sure how that’s even happened. I’ve added some purchase links to Amazon.com to pre-order the new album and snag the one before it if you still need a copy. Oh yeah and “shameless plug”, while I am loading the NYCC images into posts as you read this, a whole ton of them are on the Official Instagram of PiercingMetal already. Just click HERE to see them. As we close out you can let me know what you think about this tour down in the comments section below.
