Black Label Society kick off their UK tour next week and frontman Zakk Wylde has checked in with rushonrock to reassure fans he’s ready for anything!

With his Ozzy Osbourne dismissal and potentially fatal blood clots behind him the axe hero will air the brilliant Order Of The Black to fans across the country.

“There’s no doubt we’re up for this tour and ready to get out there,” he said from his Milton Kenyes base.

“We’ve been looking forward to this for some time and we can’t wait to see some people who we haven’t seen for a long while.

“The time just seems to fly by. There are a lot of people we haven’t seen in four years! Of course we were all doing stuff in between.

“We weren’t just sitting on our asses and doing f**k all! But we want to do this thing now.”

BLS play Birmingham on Valentine’s Day and visit Newcastle, Glasgow, Cambridge, Southampton, London, Manchester and Bristol.

Look out for a full interview with the Wylde one right here from Monday!!
