Bill Ward (Black Sabbath) Honors Las Vegas Shooting Victims With New Song “Arrows”

Original Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward has premiered a new song titled “Arrows.” The track is dedicated to the victims of the Las Vegas shooting, which happened on this day (October 1) in 2017.

Ward commented:

“In the evening of October 1st, 2017, there was a mass shooting in Las Vegas. What we’re going to do on October 1st, 2019 is we’re gonna release a song that I hope will be supportive. To me, it’s kind of like laying a wreath and sending the very best to everybody and wishing everybody well, the injured. It’s just a way of saying we’re very sorry that all those things happened and that we honor those who are not with us today.

It’s a very solemn gesture, but at the same time, I’ve written a song that I hope can bring some solace and some good things to those who are still working through that particular shooting and those particular issues that they encountered because of the shooting.”
