Black Label Society Ready 20th Anniversary Edition Of “Sonic Brew” Reissue & Tour


Black Label Society have announced the dates for a ‘20 Years Of Sonic Brewtality Tour‘ which will start in late April and find them out with Conan and The Atomic Bitchwax opening. In addition to the trek, a new 20th anniversary edition of the band’s 1999 debut album “Sonic Brew” will be released on May 17th via eOne Music.

That record has been digitally remastered and rechristened “Sonic Brew – 20th Anniversary Blend 5.99 – 5.19” for the re-release. Bonus tracks for it include a full band/piano version of “Spoke In The Wheel” and an acoustic take on “Black Pearl“. Frontman/guitarist Zakk Wylde commented:

“The original recording back in 1997 was mastered with high volume, alcohol, and dance. We went in and worked off the existing performances and focused on the high volume and dance while replacing the booze with viagra and anabolic steroids. I wanted to re-blend and re-choreograph this release to be the most brewtal and dance-tactic album since Gloria Gaynor‘s ‘I Will Survive’ dominated the dance floor at Studio 54!”

The reissue is the first in a series which eOne Music has planned with the “Stronger Than Death“, “1919 Eternal“, “The Blessed Hellride“, “Hangover Music Vol. VI“, “Mafia” and “Shot To Hell” also planned to get special treatment in the years to come.
