Black Label Society, led by guitar icon Zakk Wylde, has released a new music video for its song “Bored to Tears” from its album due out this spring. Once again directed by longtime collaborator Justin Reich, this is the second music video from from the rejuvenated version of “Sonic Brew – 20th Anniversary Blend 5.99 – 5.19,” set for a May 17 release. The band released the “Spoke in the Wheel” music video last month, and it also can be seen below.
Lollipops, dinosaurs, and dancing turtles. None of those things has ever been in a Black Label Society music video until now, and the band is not stopping there.
“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,” Wylde said.
“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.“
“Bored to Tears” and “Spoke in the Wheel” are available as an iTunes instant gratification tracks, meaning fans who pre-order the album on iTunes will receive both singles as instant downloads.
Pre-order bundles, including T-shirts, posters, vinyl and even a turntable, are available now. Click here for more.
Thanks to a new arrangement with record label Entertainment One (eOne), the band’s back catalog is now all in one place, uniting the band’s earlier work with its more recent output. The “re-blended” version of its classic debut is resurrected bigger than ever without sacrificing its familiar kick. Plus, there are two bonus cuts: a full band/piano version of “Spoke in the Wheel” and an acoustic take on “Black Pearl.”
Black Label Society also has announced its “20 Years of Sonic Brewtality Tour,” a batch of 2019 North American tour dates in conjunction with the new release. The band will play two shows in each market; the first night will feature “Sonic Brew” played in its entirety, while the second night will see the band play a set of greatest hits. Support will come from Conan and The Atomic Bitchwax. Black Label Society also will participate in U.S festivals Sonic Temple, Epicenter and Welcome to Rockville on this run.
