The official release party for "Skullage", BLACK LABEL SOCIETY's new "greatest-hits" collection, will be held today (Saturday, April 18) at Duff's Brooklyn in Williamsburg, New York beginning at 9:00 p.m. There will be lots of giveaways, including advance copies of the brand new DVD/CD, rare BLACK LABEL SOCIETY merchandise and Zakk Wylde signed stuff.
"Skullage" is scheduled for release on April 21. It will be released in three different configurations: CD, DVD and CD/DVD.
In a recent interview with Live-Metal.net, Zakk Wylde stated about "Skullage", "The record company was just asking. They said, 'Zakk, can you just put a whole compilation of stuff together before you put the new album out?' When we did 'Kings of Damnation', there was a bunch of fuckin' tunes on that thing. He goes, 'Well, can you make another one?' I go, 'Yeah, I can put a bunch of shit together on that fuckin' thing.' He said, 'Cool, we'll just put that out to fuckin' hold you over until the next record.' I said, 'Well, no fuckin' problem.'
Regarding whether there is going to be any unreleased material on this new compilation, Zakk said, "Yeah. We did a whole bunch of fuckin' acoustic shows and shit like that, me and Nick [Catanese, guitar], a while ago. They came out really fuckin' cool. It was just me and Nick doing a batch of fuckin' material and shit like that, acoustic versions of heavy songs. So yeah, we're putting that shit on there, too."
