The Black Label Society’s eleventh studio album, Doom Crew Inc., is available now via MNRK Heavy. The band released a music video for the album’s track, “You Made Me Want To Live”. Watch below:
The Doom Crew Inc. box set, limited to 2,000 copies worldwide, includes a vinyl record, a Zakk Wylde signed lyric card, a full-length CD and more. Watch an unboxing video:
The 12-track album is both a tribute to the band’s “first to bleed, last to go” road crew and a tribute to the Legion whose support, dating back to 1998, rivals that of the military. KISS. The brash, heavy, bluesy, and recklessly off-balance hard-rock-metal quartet is both an encroaching horde and a traveling carnival – summoning a caffeine-fueled cacophony to the records and stage.
The songs are odes to celebration and mourning, the soundtracks of jubilant evenings and disconcerting days recorded in Zakk’s home studio, the Black Vatican. On this album, Zakk trades solos and paired guitar parts with Dario Lorina, backed by the growl of longtime bassist John “JD” DeServio and powerhouse drummer Jeff Fabb.
Doom Crew Inc. track listing:
“Destroy and Conquer”
“You made me want to live”
“Eternity and a Day”
“The end of time”
“Gospel of Lies”

This summer, Anthrax and Black Label Society will bring some of the best thrash and heavy metal to 24 North American cities when they kick off a five-week tour on Tuesday, July 26 at Van Buren in Phoenix, AZ, wrapping up in Philadelphia at the Fillmore on Sunday August 28. Both bands will play headline sets. Hatebreed, celebrating the 20th anniversary of the album Perseverance, will be the special guest.
Black Label Society and Anthrax have shared festival stages and unique shows on several occasions, but this is the very first time these two bands will tour together.
“Zakk has been a friend and inspiration to me as a guitarist, songwriter and beard grower since we met in 1988,” said Scott Ian of Anthrax. “We’ve had the privilege of sharing festival stages with Zakk and BLS around the world, and it’s always been a society of mutual admiration between the two bands. Now we can share the stage every night on what going to easily be the heaviest tour of 2022 – the ultimate combination of two bands. Oh, and did I mention we have that damn Hatebreed with us as special guests? Holy shit, it’s going to be the night crushing 1000 riffs. Can’t wait to see you all on the road.
Said Zakk Wylde of the Black Label Society, “Anthrax are one of the best legendary metal/thrash bands of all time – I’ve been buddies with Scotty, Charlie, Frankie and Joey for over 30 years and they’re some of the best people you’ll meet Jon is the best new addition Anthrax could ask for – Hatebreed are the best hardcore/extreme metal band and best friends with Anthrax & Black Label Society The Anthrax + Black Label Society & Hatebreed tour will be one some of the best tours ever!!”
” Listen ! It’s going to be a hot summer! added Jamey Jasta of Hatebreed. “Anthrax, BLS and Hatebreed will be on your case, in your face and ready to put you and your dad back in place! See you in the pit.
