Black Label Society go unplugged on “The Song Remains Not The Same”

BLS frontman/guitar god Zakk Wylde has announced the upcoming release of “The Song Remains Not The Same” on May 3.

The offering features unplugged versions of material from Black Label Society’s latest album, “Order Of The Black,” as well as additional material recorded during the same sessions.

“The Song Remains Not The Same” was conceived, created and compiled by Zakk Wylde himself and the title is, of course, a nod to one of Wylde’s favorite bands, Led Zeppelin.

BLS cover a few major tracks, including “Can’t Find My Way Home” (Blind Faith), “Junior’s Eyes” (Black Sabbath), “Helpless” (CSNY) and “Bridge Over Troubled Water" (Simon & Garfunkel).
