This fall, get ready as Black Label Society hits the road with The Black Dahlia Murder, Alien Weaponry, and Toke (on select dates) to tour the US. Presented by Liquid Death, tickets will go on sale this Friday, June 21st, 2019.
The trek will begin on September 11th in Ventura, California, just as summer is winding down. Show dates will include stops up North, down through the Southwest and Midwest, and then finally wrapping up in the South on October 13th, in Jacksonville, North Carolina.
Black Label Society, who recently concluded their “20 Years of Sonic Brewtality Tour” will be touring in support of their 10th full-length album, ‘Grimmest Hits,’ released in January of 2018. When asked by their record label if the album has any hits, frontman and legendary axeman Zakk Wylde joked, “No. It’s rather bleak and rather grim. That’s why I went with ‘Grimmest Hits.’ You see, in order to have a greatest hits album, you need to one special ingredient: good songs. We don’t have any of those.
The Black Dahlia Murder, whose latest release is 2017’s ‘Nightbringers,’ are set to record their ninth studio album this summer. New Zealand newcomers, Alien Weaponry have been building a solid word-of-mouth following from their 2018 debut album ‘Tū,’ with new track, “Ahi Ka” also included on the new Adult Swim compilation ‘Metal Swim 2.’
One of the most important dates on this tour is October 2nd in Pikeville, Kentucky at the newly renamed Appalachian Wireless Arena (formerly Eastern Kentucky Expo Center). The Appalachian town isn’t well known for hosting rock and metal shows, and more often the concerts you will see here are country, bluegrass and occasionally classic rock. This show specifically is much more than a night of riffs and headbanging, it’s a test for the local rock and metal scene. If attendance is good and metalheads show up in droves the venue is looking to bring more rock and metal shows to the region. This one singular show could be the first steps in helping build a rock and metal scene in Eastern Kentucky. If you are in the region support this show and we may start seeing shows like this more often, rather than having to travel 3-4 hours to see a show. You can purchase tickets here now.
