E1 Music Signs Black Label Society; BLS New Album Due Out Summer 2010

E1 Music has signed Zakk Wylde’s band, Black Label Society, to its rock and metal roster. The band inked a two album deal that covers North America exclusively.

E1 Music VP of Metal Scott Givens commented on the latest addition to the E1 family, “Rarely does the opportunity come along to sign an artist as talented, influential and important as Zakk Wylde. I am thrilled to welcome him to the E1 Music Group.  He is the future of our company and all of us are battle ready to go to the wall for him.”

Zakk Wylde said about the pairing, “I’ve known Scott Givens since I first joined Ozzy, and we’ve always looked for an opportunity to work together…everything came together at E1.   I cannot wait to bring new BLS Nationwide on E1!”

Black Label Society released a compilation album, “Skullage” on April 21, 2009 and plans to release a new studio album in late summer 2010.  The band will also set out on its annual Black Label Bash tour in the fall.
