Black Label Society have officially announced the details of their ninth studio effort "Catacombs of the Black Vatican," confirming an April 8 release and the same relentless approach.
Scheduled to drop via eOne Music, the album comes as a follow-up to 2010's "The Order of the Black," a record that scored Zakk Wylde and co. A No. 4 spot on the US Billboard 200 chart.
Chatting with Blairing Out show back in November, Wylde jokingly described the album: "It's all going to be all completely the same as the last nine records, except just different song titles. [Laughs]"
The band has also unveiled a teaser clip for the upcoming release, featuring Zakk's monologue. "Face your fear. Accept your war. Destroy and conquer. Within the catacombs of the black Vatican," the axeman says.
In the latest BLS news, the group parted ways with longtime guitarist Nick Catanese last month and recently had him replaced with Dario Lorina of Lizzy Borden fame.
