Black Label Society, led by iconic American guitarist Zakk Wylde, has soared into the charts with their new LP out today via Entertainment One, Grimmest Hits. The LP has landed at #4 on the Billboard Current Charts, the highest charting LP since Order Of The Back released back in 2009.
Grimmest Hits reached #1 on the Billboard Hard Music, #1 Independent, and #2 Rock Charts. The LP was also the #1 selling album at Best Buy for the week of its release, beating out Grammy nominated, Fall Out Boy by a considerable margin.
Upon its release last Friday, Grimmest Hits landed at #1 spot on iTunes Top Rock Albums Chart and #7 on the Overall Top Albums Chart.
Black Label Society is in the middle of a hefty batch of North American tour dates spanning coast to coast in support of the all-new LP. Support is supplied by legends CORROSION OF CONFORMITY on all dates. Select tour dates will see support from EYEHATEGOD and RED FANG.

Black Label Society released their tenth full length titled Grimmest Hits today, January 19, 2018, via Entertainment One. The new effort is the highly anticipated follow up to Billboard Top 5 charting titles Catacombs of the Black Vatican (2014) and Order of the Black (2010). In-between then and now, Zakk Wylde released Book of Shadows II, the long awaited follow up from his 1996 solo debut of the same name, which debuted at #18 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart.
Wylde, now reunited with Ozzy Osbourne after an eight-year break, has played a handful of dates with whom he refers to as “the boss,” with no signs of slowing down. The reunion kicked off over the summer with a highlighted performance at CHICAGO OPEN AIR with high profile festivals like LOUDER THAN LIFE and OZZFEST MEETS KNOTFEST on deck to close out the year.
One part invading horde and all parts traveling carnival party, Black Label Society traverses the world powered by caffeine and cacophony. BLS engages and inspires audiences everywhere they go, on every radio dial they burn, inviting all comers to join in and participate in their brotherhood and sisterhood of hard rock and vigor.
Now ten studio albums deep, with solo records, Ozzy shows, and Zakk Sabbath tours all kicking ass simultaneously, Black Label Society rides ever forward, fist held high.
