I remember being invited to The Roxy because I ‘had to’ see this band from Texas many years ago. They were the first of 5. I had no expectations. And I was blown away. I immediately came back to the office and told the team this is a band that the company needs to get behind. They had their breakthrough moment at Monster Energy Aftershock 2013 and it’s only fitting to premiere ‘Go To War’ from their upcoming sophomore release together.”

Jonny Hawkins of Nothing More commented:

“There’s no such thing as overnight success but there are defining moments. For us, that moment was Aftershock 2013. I can still feel my feet boiling from the sun-drenched, black stage. I still remember my heart pounding from the energy of the crowd. We were given a shot to prove ourselves in front of every label rep from the west coast as well as many bands on the festival. Sink or swim.”

‘Go To War’ is the lead single from the new Nothing More album The Stories We Tell Ourselves, set for release September 15 via Better Noise Records.

Nothing More will perform at the Monster Energy Aftershock Festival in Sacramento, California on Saturday, October 21. For more information and tour dates for the band, visit:http://nothingmore.net/. For information on Monster Energy Aftershock, visit:www.aftershockconcert.com.

Guitar icon ZAKK WYLDE today has debuted an all new music video for the track “Sleeping Dogs” from his forthcoming solo LP. Long time collaborator Justin Reich was tapped to direct.  “Black Label Brethren O’ Doom Father Justin Reich Did Another Amazing job Directing the video,” says Wylde. “I asked Father Justin to capture the sights, sounds, smell and feel of the first day my parents dropped me off at kindergarten. Watching the video made me realize why I’m so fond of reading and vegetables.”

Grammy nominated, SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR frontman COREY TAYLOR will appear on the“Sleeping Dogs” album version as well. Wylde continues, “Having Father Corey Taylor’s brilliant Voice sing on ‘Sleeping Dogs’ fulfilled my vision of the two of us as the modern day Simon & Garfunkel. We may not be as legendary, talented or as handsome as those two, but we’ve eaten at some of the same restaurants as them.”

“Sleeping Dogs,” “Tears of December” and “Lost Prayer” are now available as an iTunes instant gratification tracks, meaning fans who pre order the album on iTunes will get the single immediately. Anadditional pre order bundle is also available offering a Book Of Shadows II CD plus a 17″x11″ poster.

Zakk Wylde will release Book Of Shadows II on April 8th, 2016 via Entertainment One Music (eOne Music), his first solo release in 20 years. This release is the highly anticipated follow up to 1996’s Book of Shadows LP, a classic album Wylde released between his work with Ozzy Osbourne that has since become a fan favorite.

The fearlessly introspective melancholy and melody of Book of Shadows helped to make its follow-up one of Rolling Stone’s Most Anticipated Albums of 2016. As fierce and diverse as his work in Black Label Society and as large as his accomplishments as lead guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne have been, Book of Shadows II offers an even richer look into the spirit and psyche of one of the most beloved pillars of the hard rock community. Brand new tracks like “Sleeping Dogs,” “Tears of December,” “Darkest Hour,” “Harbors of Pity,” and “The King” are bold proclamations of intense feeling and powerful catharsis.

Zakk Wylde’s powerful pipes, mayhem-inducing charisma, mischievous humor, and instantly recognizable pinch-harmonic driven blues based histrionic guitar shredding have made him the world’s most beloved American Guitar Hero.

Keeping up with his road dog reputation Wylde has accumulated over the decades, he is treating 2016 no differently. Having just wrapped up a successful run on the The Hendrix Experience Tour featuring some of the biggest names in Rock N Roll celebrating the legacy of Jimi Hendrix. Wylde has wasted no time in announcing his participation in the 2016 Generation Axe Tour featuring Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen, Nuno Bettencourt and Tosin Abasi.

The attitude of the songs doesn’t change when we play them acoustically–the tunes are gritty regardless.”
