California’s Black Label Society have launched a video for their new track, ‘Bored To Tears’, and it’s safe to say that it defies the usual conventions of metal videos.
The track is taken from the group’s debut album ‘Sonic Brew’, which is getting a re-issue in the form of ‘Sonic Brew – 20th Anniversary Blend 5.99 – 5.19’ later this month.
Frontman and highly-esteemed guitarist Zakk Wylde provided a humorous take on the video.
“…with the NEW BLACK LABEL SUPAH-EXCITING TECHNICOLOR DREAM COAT HIGH CALORIE BURNING video for ‘Bored To Tears’, I told BLACK LABEL DIRECTOR O’ DOOM & DELIGHT, Father Justin Reich, that I wanted to do an ‘exciting’ and ‘tough’ looking video in the movie genre style of Clint Eastwood & Charles Bronson. After seeing the video, apparently Father Justin Reich doesn’t know who these LEGENDARY FILM ICONS are or has them confused with two other actors named Clint Eastwood & Charles Bronson. Every time I watch this video, I’m more confused than I was during the previous viewing.”
