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.“

Black Label Society Announce “Sonic Brew” 20th Anniversary Reissue & Tour

Black Label Society have announced that they will be releasing a 20th anniversary edition of “Sonic Brew”, titled “Sonic Brew – 20th Anniversary Blend 5.99 – 5.19”, on May 17 via eOne Music. The effort has been digitally remastered and it will come with some bonus tracks including a full band/piano version of “Spoke In The Wheel” and an acoustic version of “Black Pearl.“

Zakk Wylde commented:

“The original recording back in 1997 was mastered with high volume, alcohol, and dance. We went in and worked off the existing performances and focused on the high volume and dance while replacing the booze with viagra and anabolic steroids. I wanted to re-blend and re-choreograph this release to be the most brewtal and dance-tactic album since Gloria Gaynor‘s ‘I Will Survive’ dominated the dance floor at Studio 54!”

This is the first in a series of reissues from eOne Music, who are also planning to reissue “Stronger Than Death“, “1919 Eternal“, “The Blessed Hellride“, “Hangover Music Vol. VI“, “Mafia” and “Shot To Hell” as well.
