BLACK LABEL SOCIETY Working on a New Album

"We were supposed to have a record recorded already."

According to bassist John "JD" DeServio, Black Label Society was supposed to have recorded a new album already. Unfortunately with the unending pandemic going on, DeServio tells Meltdown of Detroit's WRIF he's not sure when that'll happen.

"We were supposed to have a record recorded already," said DeServio. "So, who knows when that's gonna happen. Stay tuned. Hopefully sooner than later. And all the shows, I think they all got canceled this year for everybody, which really, really sucks. But we're definitely gonna be doing a new record. So keep tuned for that one."

DeServio also talked a little about Black Label Society's writing process.

"[Guitarist and vocalist Zakk Wylde] just comes up with riffs and ideas, and then we put 'em down and make a song out of it, and then that's it. It's pretty easy. It's pretty simple," he said. "A lot of times, he'll have the whole song done and then will throw down the guitar for us and then we build. A lot of times we'll just be in the studio and he comes up with stuff and then we just start jamming on it and make that a song. Like, 'Crazy Horse' was the last song written on that Order of the Black record, and it was the opening song. We had to spend an extra week doing something, and if we never did that extra week, we wouldn't have gotten a couple of them songs, which is pretty cool."

In the meantime, Wylde has covered Black Sabbath's entire 1970 debut album front to back. You can hear the title track here.
