Guitar icon Zakk Wylde has debuted a video for the track "Lost Prayer" from his latest solo LP, "Book Of Shadows II". Directed by longtime collaborator Justin Reich, it's the second video installment we've seen from Zakk from "Book Of Shadows II".
Over the summer, Wylde released the "Sleeping Dogs" music video featuring SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor. That track has gone on to become the most successful Active Rock radio single of Wylde's career, reaching as high as No. 15 in the U.S. and No. 5 in Canada.
Regarding the inspiration for the "Book Of Shadows" albums, Zakk told Billboard: "When we're doing the heavy stuff, which we love doing during a normal BLACK LABEL mass [concert], we'll still do some mellow stuff in the middle of the show, whether we do 'In This River' and other things, but then it's back to the heavy stuff. Once you get your fill of that, then you're, like, 'I want to do some mellow stuff,' and then vice versa. Because I'm sure after we tour this record, it's going to be, like, 'Man, I can't wait to do the heavy stuff.' So I really dig doing it. As much as I love listening to [LED] ZEPPELIN doing 'Black Dog', I also love them doing 'Going To California'."
Wylde will hit the road next week with ZAKK SABBATH for three shows in Southern California including a third annual stint at the official NAMM party at The Grove Of Anaheim on Saturday, January 21. ZAKK SABBATH has also been confirmed for a handful of spring and summer festivals, including MMR-B-Q, Rocklahoma and the recently sold-out Rock On The Range.
ZAKK SABBATH — which performs only classic BLACK SABBATH songs — includes Zakk, bassist Rob "Blasko" Nicholson (OZZY OSBOURNE, ROB ZOMBIE) and drummer Joey Castillo (DANZIG, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE).
Zakk will participate in the 2017 "Experience Hendrix Tour" alongside Billy Cox, Buddy Guy and Kenny Wayne Shepherd.
