Berserkers, the wait will soon be over - in less than a week, Black Label Society's slamming new album ORDER OF THE BLACK will hit streets.  On Tuesday, August 10th the new album will be available in multiple configurations.  At TARGET, an exclusive limited edition CD/DVD combo package will contain the CD plus 50 minutes of bonus. The CD/DVD configuration will be available while supplies last. A special version will also be available from Best Buy as a limited edition package to include the CD with two bonus tracks and a Black Label Society t-shirt. At iTunes, the album is available as a special deluxe digital download bundle with the complete album plus 50 minutes of bonus video content.
The first single from ORDER OF THE BLACK, "Parade of the Dead", has been steadily climbing the active rock charts and has just touched down at #25 this week.  The track is currently in rotation at such tastemaker stations around the country as WCCC/Hartford, KISW/Seattle, WRIF/Detroit, KXXR/Minneapolis and WJJO/Madison, to name a few.  Black Label Society will perform live on the nationally syndicated radio show "Rockline" on Monday, August 9th at 8:30PM, PT/11:30PM, ET.
The Black Label madness will soon begin as Zakk Wylde and company gear up for a tremendously busy week of release.  Black Label Society will headline a show for charity on the day of the album's release, Tuesday, August 10th, at The Roxy.  All proceeds will be donated to the Zakk and Barbaranne Wylde Foundation at St. Jude's.  Immediately following Zakk and crew will head out for 2010's Ozzfest.  Zakk will also be making a number of special in-store appearances around the country to sign copies of ORDER OF THE BLACK; please see below for a full list and remember first come, first serve!
Black Label Society's first new album in four years, ORDER OF THE BLACK, will be released in North America via E1 Music.  ORDER OF THE BLACK features four unique covers designed by Zakk Wylde himself - one for each territory: North America, Europe, Asia and Australia/New Zealand.
About Zakk Wylde/Black Label Society:
In the two decades since Ozzy Osbourne hired him away from his job at a New Jersey gas station, Zakk Wylde has established himself as a guitar icon known and revered the world over. Wylde has won nearly every guitar award imaginable, graced countless magazine covers and is a major influence to a new battalion of rock guitarists. Writing and recording with Osbourne led to multi-platinum success, inspiring him to create the now iconic Black Label Society in 1998.  In the decade plus since, BLS has turned the notion of what a rock band should be upside down by inspiring legions of fans (known as Berserkers) all over the world to follow the mantra: Strength, Determination, Merciless, Forever (SDMF for short). Wylde and his Berserkers have established a heavy metal institution true to the vision of uncompromising, unfiltered and unrestrained rock n' roll. To date, Black Label Society has sold more than 3.5 million albums worldwide and continues to be a massive presence on the worldwide touring and merchandising circuits.
