Black Label Society Announces New Album, ‘Doom Crew Inc.’
Black Label Society announced their 11th album, Doom Crew Inc., which they preview with a new song and a new video called “Set You Free”.
The mid-tempo stomper doom features voluminous riffs, eerie vocal harmonies, and flamboyant solos that should be familiar to any Black Label Society fan. The black-and-white video shows the band members playing the house band role at an old-fashioned party, wearing ridiculously styled wigs and playing vintage instruments. The party turns sour when someone adds “Love Potion No. 9” – aka bath salts – to the punch bowl and suddenly cannibalistic guests clash.
Black Label Society recorded Doom Crew Inc. in the home studio of conductor Zakk Wylde, the Black Vatican. Guitarist Dario Lorina, bassist John “JD” DeServio and drummer Jeff Fabb support Wylde. The quartet dedicate the new album to their tireless road team and legion of fans.
