Black Label Society to Serve Up ‘Grimmest Hits,’ Deliver Chaotic Kid’s Birthday Clip for ‘Room of Nightmares’
Pirates, ninjas, clowns, an attempted exorcism, projectile vomiting, explosives …. yeah, it’s just your typical kid’s birthday party, especially if Black Label Society shows up. The band continues to showcase their brand of humor in the new clip for “Room of Nightmares,” which is featured on the band’s upcoming Grimmest Hits collection.
In the video, a mother is frantically trying to wrangle the kids at a birthday party, getting dissed by her own son who asked for chocolate for the cake instead of the white frosted delicacy. Trying to save matters, she turns to Black Label Society to play something the kids can dance to, but instead it turns out to be a full on riot that starts once Zakk Wylde and his crew start in on their bluesy yet rocking performance of “Room of Nightmares.” And, of course, it wouldn’t be a Zakk Wylde venture without someone (or multiple someones) getting punched. Watch the Justin Reich-directed clip in the player above.
“Room of Nightmares” is the first piece of music fans are getting from the band’s upcoming tenth full-length album Grimmest Hits, which now carries a Jan. 19, 2018 street date via eOne. The album follows on the heels of 2014’s Catacombs of the Black Vatican. “Room of Nightmares” may be purchased here. Meanwhile, you can already start your pre-orders for the new disc, choosing between both digital and physical formats. Check out the artwork and track listing for Black Label Society’s Grimmest Hits collection below.
Meanwhile, Wylde will remain busy balancing his time on the road. Zakk Sabbath will take up most of his time with a full-on fall trek. But you can also look for Wylde joining Ozzy Osbourne at Aftershock and Ozzfest Meets Knotfest and the singer/guitarist returning to front Black Label Society at the ShipRocked cruise in January.
