The run kicks off April 24 in Denver, and will wrap up May 23 in Los Angeles. For each city, Zakk Wylde and company will play two shows: the first will be Sonic Brew in its entirety, while the second will be a greatest hits set. For ticket info, visit ZakkWylde.com.

Along the way, BLS will play a number of festivals, including Welcome to Rockville, Epicenter, and Sonic Temple. All of the shows fall in between Wylde’s dates playing in Ozzy Osbourne‘s backing band on the metal legend’s No More Tours 2 trek.

In addition to the tour, Black Label Society has announced a “reimagined” version of Sonic Brew, due out May 17.

“The original recording back in 1997 was mastered with high volume, alcohol, and dance,” says Wylde in a statement. “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.”

Black Label’s most recent album is 2018’s Grimmest Hits.
