Black Label Society Premiere New Video For “Bored To Tears”

Black Label Society have premiered a new video for their song “Bored To Tears.“ The track originally appeared on the band’s 1999 album “Sonic Brew” and it has since been digitally remastered for the 20th anniversary edition of the effort. That release is called “Sonic Brew – 20th Anniversary Blend 5.99 – 5.19” and it will be available on May 17

Zakk Wylde commented:

“With the new Black Label Supah-exciting technicolor dream coat high calorie burning video for ‘Bored to Tears,’ I told Black Label director o’ doom & delight, Father Justin Reich, that I wanted to do an ‘EXCITING’ and ‘TOUGH’ looking video in the movie genre style of Clint Eastwood & Charles Bronson.

After seeing the video, apparently Father Justin Reich doesn’t know who these LEGENDARY FILM ICONS are or has them confused with two other actors named Clint Eastwood & Charles Bronson. Every time I watch this video I’m more confused than I was during the previous viewing.“
