LOS ANGELES, Jan. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Hard rock legends Black Label
Society, fronted by guitar icon Zakk Wylde, have announced Unblackened, a one
night only concert at Club Nokia in Los Angeles on Wednesday, March 6^th at
9:00pm. The show  will feature intimate versions of some of the band's most
popular songs, as well as songs from Wylde's best-selling solo album Book of
Shadows and Southern rock band Pride & Glory. The show will feature Wylde on
guitar and piano, alongside the members of Black Label Society, as well as a
four-piece string section, pedal steel, and special guests. The concert will
be broadcast live exclusively on AXS TV. A CD/DVD will be released later this

"This is something we haven't done yet, and we wanted to give our fans
something new," said Wylde. "You can take a song that you've played thousands
of times and rearrange it, and all of a sudden it's something totally fresh.
The attitude of the songs doesn't change when we play them acoustically–the
tunes are gritty regardless."

On August 10^th, 2010 Black Label Society released their eighth studio album,
Order Of The Black, which entered the Billboard 200 at No. 4. The release
featured two singles, "Parade Of The Dead" and "Crazy Horse". The band then
released their ninth studio album, The Song Remains Not The Same, in May 2011,
which was a compilation album featuring new, acoustic versions of songs
originally released onOrder Of The Black. The album reached No. 41 on the
Billboard 200.

In the two decades since Ozzy Osbourne hired him away from his job at a New
Jersey gas station to become his new guitarist, Zakk Wylde has established
himself as a guitar icon known and revered the world over, winning nearly
every guitar award imaginable, and becoming a major influence on a new
battalion of rock guitarists popular today. Writing and recording with
Osbourne led to multi-platinum success, which inspired him to create the now
legendary Black Label Society (BLS) in 1998. Black Label Society members
include Zakk Wylde (lead guitar, lead vocals), Nick Cantanese (rhythm guitar),
John DeServio (bass), and Chad Szeliga (drums).
