New York, NY – Legendary, Grammy winning guitarist Zakk Wylde and his band, Black Label Society, scored #1 Most Added honors at Active Rock with the new single “Concrete Jungle.” Added to over 25 stations around the country, including WAAF in Boston, KUPD in Phoenix, KXXR in Minneapolis, KOMP in Las Vegas and WRIF in Detroit, among others, the single is the first from Zakk's latest rock 'n roll opus, Shot to Hell. This upcoming Roadrunner Records release (his first for the label) hits stores nationwide on September 12th. BLS will perform the single, as well as other tracks off of the new album, on the U.S. headlining tour that kicks off in Sayreville, NJ on October 19th.

Radio programmers are already heaping plenty of praise on Shot To Hell. "Neader" Paul Marshall of 98.9 KQRC FM in Kansas City, MO proclaims that, "Black Label Society defies conventional wisdom. It's not just a band. It's a lifestyle. It's what Rock is supposed to be. It's dirty, sleazy, and everything you've been told not to embrace. And yet you wrap yourself around it and grin. Because everyone who pisses you off, will be pissed off by your appreciation of Zakk & Co. Black Label Society is everything you heard Rock n' Roll was, but have yet to witness. It's time...S.D.M.F [Strength Determination Merciless Forever]!!!!!”

Along with the success of the single, Zakk continues to show up in all mediums of press. He recently appeared on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, playing Candyland with comedian Mitch Fatel during their Ozzfest segment. Additionally, he appeared on New York City’s WB11 Morning Show, where he taught the anchor a few licks on guitar. Zakk has also graced the covers of the September issues of Guitar World and Metal Edge magazines, has appeared as the marquee artist in’s Ozzfest coverage, and will have a feature interview in Men’s Health magazine where he talks about juggling family life and constant touring.

Black Label Society are preparing to hit the road to support the new album on the “Shot To Hell” Tour, featuring special guests (and labelmates) Black Stone Cherry. BSC, an up-and-coming Southern Rock band, recently debuted at #90 on the Top 200 Album Chart with their self-titled debut album. Moving over 10,000 units in its first week, Black Stone Cherry features the hit single “Lonely Train,” which has risen to #12 on the Top Hard Rock Album Chart. Together, Black Label Society and Black Stone Cherry will spread the rock n roll gospel across America through late Fall.

The 37-date Fall tour starts on October 19th in Sayreville and ends on December 8th in Los Angeles. Tickets will go on sale August 5th through TicketMaster however the bolded dates are available pre-sale starting noon on 7/31. The presale tickets can be purchased by going to
