Anthrax’s Scott Ian commented:

“Zakk [Wylde] has been a friend and an inspiration to me as a guitar player, songwriter, and beard grower since we met in 1988. We’ve had the privilege to share festival stages with Zakk and BLS around the world, and it’s always been a head-banging mutual admiration society between the two bands. Now we get to share the stage every night on what is easily going to be the heaviest tour of 2022 — the ultimate pounding one-two combination of bands. Oh, and did I mention we’ve got fucking Hatebreed with us as our special guests? Holy crap, it’s going to be the night of 1000 crushing riffs. I can’t wait to see you all on the road.”

Black Label Society’s Zakk Wylde continued:

“ANTHRAX is one of The BESTEST LEGENDARY METAL/THRASH BANDS of ALL TIME — I have been buds with SCOTTY, CHARLIE, FRANKIE & JOEY for over 30 years and they are some of the BESTEST people you will meet. JON is The BESTEST new addition ANTHRAX could ask for — HATEBREED are The BESTEST HARDCORE/EXTREME METAL band & BESTEST friends w/ANTHRAX & BLACK LABEL SOCIETY. The ANTHRAX + BLACK LABEL SOCIETY & HATEBREED TOUR is going to be one of the BESTEST TOURS EVER!!”

Hatebreed’s Jamey Jasta added:

“Listen up! It’s gonna be a hot summer! Anthrax, BLS, and Hatebreed will be on your case, in your face, and ready to kick you and your father back in place! See you in the pit.”

Black Label Society Premiere “End Of Days” Video

Black Label Society have premiered a new video for their new song “End Of Days.” This track is from the band’s new album “Doom Crew Inc.,” which will be released on November 26.

Director Justin H. Reich commented:

“If there is one thing that Zakk loves, it is comedy. More specifically, classic comedy (ala Mel Brooks, etc.) We both love it, and I think that’s why we work so well together. We both operate on that same wavelength where if he sends me a kernel of an idea and I immediately know where to take it.

The ‘End Of Days’ video idea started with Zakk sending me viral videos of a panda and bear chasing each other through a mall, which I thought were hilarious and gave us a great starting point to create our own original story. It gave us plenty of funny moments and introduced characters normally not seen in a Black Label Society music video. Luckily, we were able to pull it off and create something fun and buzzworthy that BLS fans all over will enjoy.”
