Black Label Society To Release New Album “Doom Crew Inc.” In November, Premiere “Set You Free” Video

Black Label Society have announced that they will be releasing a new album titled “Doom Crew Inc.” on November 26. You can find a video for the effort’s first single, “Set You Free,” below, along with the cover art and track listing.

“Doom Crew Inc.” Track Listing:

01. “Set You Free”
02. “Destroy & Conquer”
03. “You Made Me Want To Live”
04. “Forever And A Day”
05. “End Of Days”
06. “Ruins”
07. “Forsaken”
08. “Love Reign Down”
09. “Gospel Of Lies”
10. “Shelter Me”
11. “Gather All My Sins”
12. “Farewell Ballad”

The following was said about the record in a press release:

“The 12-track album is both a tribute to the band’s ‘first to bleed, last to leave’ road crew and a salute to the legion whose support, stretching back to 1998, rivals that of the KISS Army. The stomping, heavy, bluesy, recklessly unhinged hard-rock-metal quartet are part invading horde, and part traveling carnival – summoning caffeine-fueled cacophony on records and the stage.”

Zakk Wylde added:

“We incorporated Father Dario even more into the solos, doubling with me and being more involved in that regard. It really, truly is a two-guitar album, more so than ever. A twin guitar band, whether it’s The Allman Brothers or Judas Priest, with harmony lines, unison lines, and trading off solos. It stemmed from the live shows, where we’d both go into the crowd and extend songs like ‘Fire It Up’.”

Black Label Society Have Recorded “About 30 Songs” For Their Next Album

During an interview with Detroit’s 101 WRIF, Zakk Wylde offered an update on the new Black Label Society album. He said that the band have recorded “about 30 songs” for the effort and that “it’ll probably come out in November.

Wylde said the following:

“We’re just working on the new record — new BLACK LABEL flavored country donuts for the next album. During the COVID, obviously, [we worked on] the [recently released] ‘None More Black’ box set, and then we also tracked about 30 songs. So we’ve got that. We’re just putting the finishing touches on some stuff right now. We’re gonna be mastering that in a little bit. So it’ll probably come out in November.”

He also added the following about touring plans:

“I guess we’re doing [the] Sturgis [motorcycle rally] with BLACK LABEL. That’s in August. And then in all of October and November, we’re gonna be going around the States. And then we’re doing a BLACK LABEL Christmas-new Year’s Eve, and we end up with the Arizona chapter. That’s what’s on the agenda for now. Hopefully everybody has the shot and then we can all have everything back to normal again, and we can start doing tours again.”

Black Label Society’s John “JD” DeServio: “We’re Definitely Gonna Be Doing A New Record”

During a recent interview with Meltdown of Detroit’s WRIF, Black Label Society’s John “JD” DeServio revealed that the band are planning to work on a new album. The bassist said the effort was supposed to be recorded already, but the coronavirus pandemic hindered their plans.

DeServio said the following:

“We were supposed to have a record recorded already. So, who knows when that’s gonna happen. Stay tuned. Hopefully sooner than later. And all the shows, I think they all got canceled this year for everybody, which really, really sucks. But we’re definitely gonna be doing a new record. So keep tuned for that one.”

He continued after being asked if the group have already written new music for the effort:

“I’m sure Zakk’s [Wylde] got a bunch of riffs written. I’m sure he does.”

DeServio also added the following about the songwriting process:

“Zakk just comes up with riffs and ideas, and then we put ’em down and make a song out of it, and then that’s it. It’s pretty easy. It’s pretty simple. A lot of times, he’ll have the whole song done and then will throw down the guitar for us and then we build. A lot of times we’ll just be in the studio and he comes up with stuff and then we just start jamming on it and make that a song. Like, ‘Crazy Horse’ was the last song written on that ‘Order Of The Black’ record [2010], and it was the opening song. We had to spend an extra week doing something, and if we never did that extra week, we wouldn’t have gotten a couple of them songs, which is pretty cool.”

Black Label Society To Work On New Album This Spring

During a recent interview with Billboard, Zakk Wylde revealed that Black Label Society are planning to work on a new album this spring. He said the following:

“I’m going to do some writing, I guess, in April, and [in] May and June, we’ll [record] and have that one ready to roll. I don’t demo or stockpile shit. Never have. I’m not like Prince, where he’s recording stuff all the time. I just like to come up with a riff or an idea and be like, ‘Why don’t we track that one today?’ It’s like the beginning of a new season. It’s always fun.”
