BLS is currently working with producer Michael Beinhorn (worked with: Soundgarden, Ozzy Osbourne, Red Hot Chili Peppers) on “Shot To Hell”, their first release on Roadrunner, which will be released this summer.
Wylde commented: "After spending a lifetime as Wylde Z. Coyote, I guess it was just a matter of time before I'd catch the Roadrunner"
Roadrunner Director of A&R Mike Gitter stated:
"Signing Zakk and Black Label Society is an honor, the guy is genuine, rock royalty whose talent is only matched by his vision. He is the real deal and his legacy as one of the greatest guitarists of all time has already been cemented."
”Shot To Hell” is the follow up to “Mafia”, which debuted in March 2005 at #15 on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart and at #1 on the Top Independent Albums chart.
